I posted the other day that teams cannot be trusted when they say 'tendinitis' or 'inflammation.' It is almost always worse than they make it out to be. In this case I am pretty sure they have no idea what is wrong with him which is extremely worrying. I don't mean to burst anybody's bubble, but from an ESPN article on teams covering up injuries (that I quoted the other day when Peavy originally went down):
Tendinitis: Like inflammation, it says something and says nothing. Tendinitis is a symptom, rather than the source of the problem; it's like saying a player has a runny nose, rather than addressing why he has a runny nose. "You say a player has tendinitis and what might really be going on is that he has loose cartilage in his knee," said one executive. "You say a pitcher has tendinitis, and it might be that he's got a serious tear. When you get right down to it, tendinitis could cover any number of things."
