As Drew mentioned the other day, Jake Peavy was dominant in his most recent rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday night, striking out nine over six scoreless innings. While there’s nothing official yet, White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper told Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times yesterday that Peavy could return from the disabled list as soon as next Wednesday against the crosstown Cubs.
“Without discussing it with Ozzie and [GM] Kenny [Williams], it looks like he’s lined up for the last game against the Cubs,’’ Cooper said. “That’s unofficial, as well as the six-man rotation. But all of that is going to be discussed and probably shook out after the game today or tomorrow. We’ll talk more about it.”
Peavy offered to return as a reliever earlier this week, but it appears that the White Sox will move ahead with a six-man rotation once he’s ready.
Peavy has a 4.66 ERA, 20/4 K/BB ratio and 0.99 WHIP in five major league starts this season. The veteran right-hander has missed the past two weeks with a groin injury.
