All that stuff we were hearing last night? Forget it.

According to Doug Padilla of ESPNChicago.com, Jake Peavy conceded this afternoon that he will need to be placed on the disabled list.

“I just saw the doctor, and I think we’re going to have to go the conservative route,” Peavy said. “Obviously, I wanted to try to push through it and do what we needed to do, but I think we’re looking at the disabled list just because of the MRI result and how may exam just went with the doctor.”

Peavy has been dealing with a sore right groin since May 30 and aggravated the injury while trying to cover first base during Sunday’s start against the Tigers. He was eventually pulled from the game after allowing six runs on three hits and three walks over four innings.

The White Sox have employed a six-man rotation since Peavy returned from shoulder surgery last month, so they will simply go back to a traditional five-man rotation while he’s on the disabled list.

    Due to Peavys long and recent history of injuries, the White Sox said that they were putting Peavy on the DL in order to be “cautious”. How about just putting him on the 60 day DL for the duration of his contract and end the soap opera?

    When Peavy comes off the DL he’ll likely have 2-3 starts before pulling something else (or having a brain cramp), and wind up right back on the DL anyways.
