Jake Peavy

Postby dimewylde » Tue Jun 06, 2006 9:46 pm

I don't like what I'm seeing tonight. Anyone watching the game hear anything about his tendonitis acting up? I'm real worried...now I'm expecting one of two things from my ace: time on the DL soon (which would kill me)...or playing through the pain and thus making progressively worse starts until his shoulder explodes and I lose him for the playoff run.

I've delt with Sheets and Patterson's DL stints (not to mention Pujols, Sheff, and Cantu), please not Peavy now.

Didn't see the game either, but a DL stint is practically inevitable now IMHO unless Peavy persuades the team that his his shoulder is fine and that he just had a bad start. I can't think of a reason why they wouldn't DL him.

The Baseball injury report had this to say last week:

Jake Peavy (RHP, SD) In what is starting to look like a
career trend, Peavy can’t seem to stay healthy enough to
surpass the 220 IP level. He always seems to miss a couple
of starts and this year’s ‘episode’ might be starting. Peavy
has developed some tendinitis in his pitching shoulder. Not
enough to land him on the disabled list, but it will delay
his next start. It wouldn’t be a surprise if the Padres skip
over his next start just to make sure he gets enough time to
get rid of the inflammation in his shoulder. In his latest
outing, he only made it through the 5th inning, allowing
nine hits and six runs – very unlike Peavy, even if it was
against the Cardinals. It’s interesting to note that Peavy
got off to a slow start in strikeouts this season, after
leading the National League in that category last season. He
does have a history of pushing himself too hard to get the
strikeouts and this is where he usually ends up with some
shoulder problems. In his previous three starts before his
struggles against the Cardinals, Peavy struckout 13, 6 and
16 against the Braves. Is it a coincidence Peavy comes down
with tendinitis after the 16-strikeout performance? I think
not. The Padres are giving him eight days between starts,
hoping his shoulder settles down and he avoids the DL.

I agree. If you're gonna sit him for 8 days, you might as well make it 2 weeks to allow the swelling to go down. I just traded for him, after he struck out 16 batters in one game. Luckily I only gave up Willy Aybar and Nelson Cruz for him.

Jeez- nice deal!
;-D

Ya- Peavy got beat up this game. Pretty obvious that he needs to be placed on the DL.

I saw the game, early on he gave up many bloop hits and even got pitches mixed up with his catcher Bowen. He threw hard and only walked one, I would not be to concerned until something is reported wrong

Great. Pujols and now Peavy.

I went from 2nd to 6th in my 10 team keeper league.

Now I'm trying to stay alive for the playoffs.

Damnation... with Peavy & Kazmir pitching this horribly, the good start to my season is going down the drain. At least Derek Jeter has been consistent & reliable... oh wait, he's now sat two in a row as well.

I'm not sure what to make of his comments... I don't like the sound of it, but maybe others will disagree. Sounds like he's putting on a brave face.

SignOnSanDiego.com
Peavy (4-6) struggled after his start was pushed back from Saturday due to tendinitis in his right shoulder. The right-hander pitched 3 2-3 innings, giving up five runs and seven hits. He struck out three and walked one. In a May appearance against the Brewers he struck out 13.

“The layoff helped,” Peavy said. “I definitely felt better going into this start, but I just don't have a whole lot of arm strength and I wasn't sound as far as throwing the ball where I wanted it.”

It was Peavy's shortest outing since he lasted only two innings at Arizona on Aug. 25, 2003.

“I did feel better,” he said. “It's not completely gone, but definitely got loose quicker, stayed loose and I was excited about that. Hopefully, we can maintain that.”

San Diego manager Bruce Bochy said Peavy showed a little rust.

“He hasn't been in his normal routine and we pushed him back to give him some rest,” Bochy said. “He threw a little better than he showed. He had a few balls fall in there ... and he didn't have a lot of luck.”
