Earlier on Monday, we told you that Jake Peavy had been removed from a rehab start after just 15 pitches. It wasn't clear at the time what had actually happened, but courtesy of Brett Ballantini, we have something of a vague update:
Initial rept on Peavy: "left with discomfort" further eval tmrw
Discomfort where? Discomfort of what severity? These question are, for the time being, left unanswered. But Peavy has been rehabbing from rotator cuff tendinitis, so it wouldn't be a surprise to hear that his shoulder is barking once again.
Peavy will be evaluated on Tuesday, after which we should hear a few more details about what's going on. It's possible this could just be a minor setback, but it's also possible this could be something more sinister, and what's basically certain is that Peavy will not be returning to the Chicago rotation at the end of the month, as planned. That's good news for Philip Humber, and bad news for the rest of the White Sox.
