Peavy’s latest rehab start ‘OK’

SHARE Peavy’s latest rehab start ‘OK’

Jake Peavy had good command in his six innings for AAA Charlotte Wednesday night. The rehabbing right-hander allowed two runs on eight hits and no walks, striking out four against the Durham Bulls. Peavy threw 72 pitches, 55 for strikes.

Peavy, who allowed a tape-measure home run to Russ Canzler, said he felt slightly more fatigued toward the end of this outing than his last.

“I felt OK. No pain. My arm was a little rusty. I didn’t get to throw yesterday, travel day. Sometimes that leads to a little rust,” Peavy told reporters after the game. “Other than that, I threw the ball OK.

“Obviously, a lot of hits, but just pitched. Took some off, put some on when we needed to. Got some good work in.”

Peavy went to the bullpen after he pitched to throw about a dozen more pitches to get his count up to 85. His next minor-league start is scheduled for April 18, on regular four days rest.

Peavy will return to Chicago and be with the team on Friday.

“I feel like I’m a musician on tour,” he said.
