Craig told us earlier today that Jake Peavy was likely headed for the disabled list with strained right groin. That still might happen, but the White Sox are in a bit of a holding pattern following an MRI earlier today.

According to Doug Padilla of ESPNChicago.com, the White Sox will evaluate Peavy on a day-to-day basis after he was diagnosed with a mild right groin strain.

Peavy left yesterday’s start against the Tigers after allowing six runs on three hits over and three walks over four innings. He has a 4.66 ERA and 20/4 K/BB ratio over his first five starts since returning from shoulder surgery.

White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said before tonight’s game that they will move ahead with a five-man rotation while Peavy is sidelined.

    Peavy was reportedly in a lot of discomfort with his groin strain until the White Sox scouted a cute co-ed in the stands to come in an rub it down and watch what comes up!

    Peavy is a great talent, but with a history of medical problems. If he could stay healthy, he would be another Halladay or better. Too bad we don’t get to see him much.
