Where are people hearing that Peavy is out until after the all star break? All I ever read is that he is on the 15 day DL! Help me out guys.

The Padres shut him down completely (no pitching at all) for the 15 days he will be on the DL. Then he will need another two weeks of working back up his pitch counts.

Peavy's DL stay projected 4-6 weeks: An exam of Jake Peavy's elbow showed no structural damage, but because ligament inflammation was detected, Peavy's projected time on the disabled list was inflated to 4-6 weeks.


that would be the allstar break

Pain gone for Peavy: Right-handed starter Jake Peavy also has an eye on the schedule. He'll throw tomorrow for the first time since going on the disabled list May 27 with tendinitis in his right forearm. "All the associated pain is gone," said Peavy. "I'd love to be back some time late in the next home stand.

little harsh on Jacob aren't ya ..

Irregardless,

The facts of the matter remain, He does have a excellent K/9 and he does pitch in an extreme. And he finally has some offense.


Yes, he has a good K/9. I didn't deny that. And he has a good offense, and a good park to pitch in. But all I'm saying is that his ERA is not at all a reflection on how well he's pitched. Somebody said WHIP is misleading and ERA is a true tale of how well a pitcher is doing. What!?! I think you have that backwards. WHIP is a very good indication of how well a pitcher is doing. He was not doing very well at all, it's just that instead of giving up 33 HR like last year, he's only given up 2. If I had any reason to believe that he wouldn't start giving up more HRs I wouldn't be so down on him, but a new ballpark is not enough to sway the stats that much. He only gave up 9 HR at home last year anyway, compared to 24 on the road, so I don't see much ground to be gained by having the new park. Maybe 5 HR would be taken away with the larger dimensions, leaving only 4 at home, but that's still 24 on the road. Why is he still allowing so many hits? He's giving up 9 hits per game as opposed to 8 last year, when he had a 4.11 ERA. If he's now a groundball pitcher or something, such as he learned a new pitch or improved his sinker (if he has one), then that would explain it somewhat. But if I had him and he were healthy, you can bet I'd be trading him for the best player I could get before he starts giving up jacks again, and his ERA catches up with his WHIP.

Pehaps he is just better at maintaining his focus when he is in jams.

There's really no way to speculate on his effectiveness when he returns as there's no set timetable. There will almost certainly be a couple rehab appearances and that might give a clue.

no way
