Jake Peavy Removed From Rehab Start Early

White Sox starter Jake Peavy was sidelined out of spring training with a bout of rotator cuff tendinitis that Ozzie Guillen predicted would cause him to miss his first three or four starts of the season. He's been making rehab starts in the minors, and he put himself on track to return at the end of the month, but now on Monday evening, we get some troubling news:

Peavy throws 15 pitches in the first, .2 IP. Removed from start at AA Birmingham. Uh-oh.

Now, it's currently unknown why Peavy came out. He had allowed three runs and four hits in the brief outing. But it doesn't make sense that a minor league manager would remove a starter like Peavy that early for ineffectiveness unless something else was wrong, and one is left to wonder if something physical has flared up.

We'll update you when we know more about the situation. In Peavy's place in the rotation, Philip Humber has made two starts, allowing five runs in 11 innings. If Peavy's rehab has to be extended, it'll be Humber who benefits.
