I read June as a probable return date in one place, and then I read April in another.

Any clue what the club is saying? :-S

According to news out of Arizona (via ESPN) Peavy's first spring training outing went well and he still thinks he has a chance to make the opening day roster. Even if he doesn't, he won't be out until June.

Best thing to do is let someone else draft him and ruin their team. He is a ERA/WHIP bomb that will ruin your week.

Well, that's certainly not happening.

:-? Sure he pitched a lot of years at Petco, but he still has a career ERA of 3.36 and a career WHIP of 1.19. Heck, even last year his WHIP was only 1.23, which is hardly a 'bomb'. We're talking about a guy that you're only going to draft really late in the hopes of a bounce back. At that point you kind of have to look past last year. If he pitches badly early on you drop him and grab a hot waiver add, 'cause that's how late round arms work.

News from today - Peavy shut down with suspected rotator cuff tendinitis.

Peavy met with the team doctors Sunday, and they prescribed anti-inflammatory medication a day after he pitched 5 2-3 innings against Oakland.

Peavy said the current issue is not related to his surgery and that the next 48 hours will determine whether he starts Thursday as scheduled.

Like I said, stay away from Peavy or you'll be sorry.

Most likely he is going to be an end of draft option, I don't see why you can't take a flyer on him. He is a high risk / reward guy. If he performs, great, if not just drop him. No biggie.

I get what you're saying but his ADP is 15-20th (200th pick) round in most leagues and those aren't "who cares rounds" in my league. These are the rounds that make championship teams as everyone is about the same coming through rounds 1-10. Burning a pick on someone that soon who will be on the DL all year or blow up your pitching stats when he does return for 100 innings is not a wise decision. Much safer bets with upside are people like Gio Gonzalez, Ryan Raburn, Brian Matusz, Jose Tabata and James Shields. These guys will have my pick while others waste theirs on Peavy.
