White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy took a nice first step Wednesday in his recovery from a fractured rib.

According to beat writer Mark D. Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune, Peavy was able to throw for about seven minutes from a distance of around 75 feet and reported no physical issues. “It was good,” he told Gonzales once the short workout was through.

Peavy was diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture in his rib cage on June 5 and placed on the disabled list one day later. He is expected to be ready for activation shortly after the mid-July All-Star break.

The 32-year-old had a 4.30 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 66/15 K/BB ratio in 67 innings before the injury.
