SHARE Peavy misses second day with illness

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Jake Peavy missed his second day of work with a nasty stomach virus. He received fluids and medicine at the Sox’ complex Thursday morning and met with doctors, who sent him to his residence to rest.

The right-hander is still scheduled to take his normal turn Saturday against the Oakland A’s.

“I have him penciled in today for Saturday,” pitching coach Don Cooper said.

“Some of the preparation he’s had to do yesterday and today hasn’t been in there. But if he’s able to go he’ll go. If not we’ll run somebody else out there. Hopefully he won’t have to miss.”
