Santiago to start Wednesday; extra rest for Peavy

SHARE Santiago to start Wednesday; extra rest for Peavy

Hector Santiago will start on Wednesday for the White Sox against the Cleveland Indians, pushing Jake Peavy back one day to give him an extra day of rest.

The insertion of Santiago into the rotation was also going to give ace Chris Sale, who threw 118 pitches on Monday, an extra day. But during the course of Tuesday’s 4-3 loss the Sox changed their mind and said Sale will start on four days Saturday against the Tampa Bay Rays. That would allow him to pitch in a potential AL Central tiebreaker game next Thursday.

Peavy will pitch the series opener against the Rays, followed by Gavin Floyd on Friday. Sunday has yet to be determined, likely between Jose Quintana — who pitched to two batters in relief Tuesday – or Francisco Liriano.
