Hector Santiago was supposed to start in place of the injured Gavin Floyd tomorrow, but instead he’ll be needed tonight after the White Sox scratched Jake Peavy from his scheduled start with back spasms.

Peavy was off to a very strong start with a 3.38 ERA and 39/6 K/BB ratio in 32 innings, building on an excellent 2012 season that saw him stay healthy for the first time since 2007. And the good news is that his arm is fine.

Chicago declined its $22 million option on Peavy for this season and instead signed him to a new two-year, $29 million deal that includes a $15 million option for 2015.

    The injury bug virus is on the verge on becoming a mini epidemic.

      The Borg doesn’t need a trainer. It needs a MASH unit. I expect to see a big pile of fly-covered arms and legs out back in the Stadium dumpster by the middle of the month.
