Peavy

Postby xirix » Wed Jun 24, 2009 2:23 pm

Does anyone really think he will be back before September? With the Pads fading, and with Peavy untradeable, is there any reason for him to pitch again this year?

I really don't see him doing too much either. Unfortunately he is undroppable in most of the leagues I own him in, so until season-ending news comes out, I'll probably just have to hold him.

He's not the type of guy to sit out IF he's able to pitch, regardless if the Pads are in contention or not. He's competetive and will want to get back out there if his health allows it. That is the big question. I'm holding onto him...but i'm in a keeper. Probably would hold onto him in a non-keeper for a potential return around playoff time until some updated news comes out.

the above posters nailed it on the head. peavy is not the type of pitcher that will just accept a benching just because the pads are out of contention. also, in the interest of the organization, san diego may want to get him out on the field once he is healthy so that they can showcase to the league that he is healthy and they can trade him over the offseason instead of waiting til midseason when that risk of injury is there. they tried doing that this year with a few teams but the padres' asking price was too high, but that price may come down because of the injuries over the past 2 years.

I think the potential for a September return makes him a pretty good investment in playoff format leagues. Nothing like bringing in an elite level, RESTED, starter for the playoffs.

Can't call this good news. Why o why does Yahoo have Peavy as undroppable? :-[

Jun 30 Rotowire- Peavy (tibialis posterior tendon strain) needs 10-to-14 more days in his walking boot, the Padres' official site reports.
Recommendation: There was some optimism about his progress, but surgery has not been ruled out for Peavy's balky ankle. More should be know either way the next time his cast is removed.

Jun 30 Yahoo Sports Jake Peavy will spend at least 10 more days in a boot that immobilizes the strained tendon in his right ankle. Peavy's strained posterior tibialis was re-evaluated Tuesday. "I'm not where I want to be, but certainly this treatment helped," Peavy said after the evaluation by the Padres' foot specialist, Dr. Steve Copp. "I've been cleared to ride a (stationary) bike with the boot on, and I'll continue the ultrasound treatments. We did some resistance stuff to test the ankle. I'm not completely pain-free, but it's certainly significantly better than a few weeks ago."

So does this new make Peavy dropable now? Im in a 10 Team , day to day league and most guys keep around 5-6 pitchers to rotate through the week.

After losing Peavy and dropping Volstad Im down to Cueto, Gallarado, Felix H., and Gavin Floyd. Im getting beat in K's, Wins, Innings pitched every week. My choices on the WW are Aaron Cook, Nolasco and Ubaldo.

NOLASCO is on your WW? 8-o

Not a bad gamble at all dropping Peavy (if he's your best drop option) for the resurgent Ricky, IMHO. Plus, maybe Peavy will linger on your WW for a while and you can pick him up down the road.

I find it incredulous that Nolasco is unowned after his brilliant return from his demotion. You should find a way to get Ubaldo on your team too.

I wouldn't drop Peavy, I would try to trade him. I ended up getting Grady Sizemore in return for Peavy =) But im sure you could get someone for Peavy if people believe he is going to come back healthy they will pay a hefty sum. But definitely find a way to get Nolasco too. He is strong right now.
