Jake Peavy Injury Not Serious After MRI Comes Back Clean

On Monday, White Sox starter Jake Peavy had to leave a rehab start after throwing only 15 pitches with what was termed "discomfort". It put a great scare into those fans who were eager to see Peavy return to the bigs, and while Peavy was scheduled for an evaluation on Tuesday, it's safe to say the mood was nervous.

Fortunately, the news appears to be good. According to Mark Gonzales, Peavy had an MRI that came back clean, showing no new damage in his shoulder area. He's dealing with muscle irritation in his lat, and as such he will be placed on anti-inflammatories for six days.

Peavy will skip a start and resume a throwing program in four days, so this is definitely a setback, but given that things could've been a lot worse, it just isn't that big of a deal. Philip Humber will continue to keep Peavy's rotation spot warm in Chicago until the veteran is able to make his return.
