Jake PeavyBy C. Trent Rosecrans

The White Sox have shut down right-hander Jake Peavy for the season, Scott Merkin of the MLB.com reports.

Peavy, 30, started 18 games and pitched in relief in one more, going 7-7 with a 4.92 ERA. The 2007 Cy Young Award winner had surgery last year to have his latissimus dorsi muscle behind his right shoulder reattached.

"Jake rich now is shut down," pitching coach Don Cooper told MLB.com's Merkin. "The things we are looking at right now are, one, we want to win as many games as we can. Two, we want to keep everybody strong and healthy and continue to finish this season strong."

Peavy had said after his Aug. 31 start against the Twins that he was feeling "run down" and looking forward to the offseason. He then threw 6 1/3 scoreless innings against the Twins on Sept. 6, allowing just four hits and striking out nine.

Still Peavy had said after his last start that he wouldn't make the decision whether he'd be shut down, but was looking forward to the offseason.

"There's no doubt, I look forward to a nice winter and a nice comeback season next year," Peavy said (ChicagoTribune.com) on Tuesday.

Peavy was scheduled to pitch again on Monday against the first-place Tigers, but instead John Danks and Gavin Floyd will both be bumped up a day, but still be on regular rest. Merkin speculates Dylan Axelrod could start against the Tigers in the third game of the series with first-place Detroit on Wednesday. Zach Stewart will pitch on Sunday against the Indians.

Peavy said he hopes to return to his former form next season.

"Like I said, there are times last winter where I didn't know if I'd ever throw again," Peavy told MLB.com on Saturday. "Being able to come back and pitch in the big leagues, there's no doubt it was gratifying. There were a couple of highlights and just a roller-coaster ride. It was learning as we went."

It's really too bad, another Mark Prior story  ?????????

Are you giving up on Peavy? 

Peavy will be back next year better then  ever beacause of the White Sox shutting him done.  It will be the best thing to do for every one. 


White Sox  season is over and they will now have an opportunity to see how thw younger pitchers do...  Also, they will need him more then ever because Mark Buehrle  and his 14 millon contract will be gone because they can't afford him any more.........   


hopefully he can come back to sustain a solid career.....


That I agree with..... Do you agree what Ii said about Buehrle?

It's a shame to see such a taltented guy never return to form after injury but I think this is Brandon Webb 2.0. San Diego really got one over on Chicago.
