"Jake Peavy said he was pain-free after a 77-pitch rehab start for Double-A Mobile.
Peavy threw 4 2/3 innings and allowed seven hits and four runs (three earned) before leaving when he reached his pitch count. He'll face the weakened Royals on Friday so is worth starting. Jun. 28 - 10:21 am et" Rotoworld

What are your thoughts on Peavy I had him on my team and can still pick him up. He was doing great before his DL stint-will he hit the ground running or is he a constant injury risk that will not be good or reliable?

if you have room, pick him up.
he is a future stud and he might even be studly for the last two or so months of this season.

i would pick him up and not start him for a few eeks just to see how he is doing- but i think he has a chance of returning to his before the DL self and pitching quite well

I might even start him out of the gate, which I rarely do with DL guys. He's got the Royals at Petco, and that's a nice combo.

I'd pick him up and leave him on the bench for a start or two. He will probably end up being pretty good, but I don't expect a top 5 ERA at the end of the year.

Agreed. I am going to take my chances on him against the Royals.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

the Royals right now are what the Expos were in the beginning of the year.
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

I drafted him in a couple of leagues and I've had no problems letting him take one of my DL spots. He will be in my active lineup as soon as he gets back. B-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
