Peavy to meet with White Sox GM

The White Sox's Jake Peavy will meet with general manager Ken Williams to determine his status for this weekend's series at Washington, the Chicago Tribune 's Mark Gonzalez reports .

Peavy told Gonzalez that his right shoulder feels better, but Triple-A Charlotte pitcher Daniel Hudson has been put on the ready to start either Friday or Saturday against the Nationals. Steven Strasburg starts for the Nationals on Friday. The White Sox have yet to name a starter for either game.

"Obviously, it's not my call," Peavy said.

Peavy was scheduled to start on Thursday, but Mark Buerhle will start against the Pirates tonight.

In addition to Hudson, Gavin Floyd will be able to pitch one of those games, with Freddy Garcia closing out the weekend series against the Nationals.

UPDATE: Gonzalez reports Peavy will start Saturday, Floyd on Friday.

Tired Peavy could be pushed back

Jake Peavy White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen met with general manager Kenny Williams and pitching coach Don Cooper before Wednesday's game, apparently discussing juggling the rotation to give right-hander Jake Peavy some extra rest.

No decision had been announced prior to game time, but the Chicago Tribune reports that if Peavy is given extra rest, Mark Buehrle would take Peavy's scheduled start on Thursday, and either Peavy or Gavin Floyd would start Friday against Nationals rookie Stephen Strasburg.

Peavy complained of a "tired arm" in late May. He has pitched 83 1/3 innings in 13 starts, about 6 1/3 innings per start. That's on par with his workload previously in his career. He is 5-5 with a 5.62 ERA and has allowed 52 earned runs, tied for the most in baseball.

UPDATE: Guillen said after Wednesday's game that Peavy had an MRI that revealed no structural damage, but that Buehrle would make the start Thursday. He didn't say what the plan was for starters Friday and Saturday.

No. 300 for Soriano

Cubs outfielder Alfonso Soriano has just hit his 300th career home run, connecting against Jake Peavy of the White Sox in the second inning at Wrigley Field.

Soriano is the second Cub to hit his 300th this week -- Derrek Lee did it Wednesday. They are the 126th and 127th members of the 300 Club.

Peavy: If Sox rebuild, I'm out

White Sox GM Kenny Williams is talking about making changes in the wake of the club's 25-33 start, but if he wants to go into full-on rebuilding mode, one of his moves would need to be moving ace Jake Peavy.

Peavy has a full no-trade clause and only waived it last year, clearing the way for a trade from San Diego to Chicago, under assurances he was going to a team commited to contending. He seems satisfied that rebuilding is not what Williams is proposing, but told the Chicago Tribune that if that's what develops, he'd ask to be traded.

"I'm excited to be in a situation where you talk about it's not going to be a rebuilding process," Peavy said today. "(But) if that were the case, I would certainly try to be moved, but that's the least of my worries. ... I'm very happy to be here, but it is a nice feeling at the end of the day to understand when you can control your destiny, and have a say-so."

It's rare for a player to talk so openly about the idea of asking for a trade (except in cases where someone is using the media to force a team's hand, which isn't the case here), but Peavy has the clout to say what he wants.

If it did come to a point where Peavy wanted out, the White Sox might not find a long list of suitors. His numbers this season are not very Peavy-like (4-5, 5.90 ERA) and he's still due about $47 million on his contract, which runs through 2012 with a club option for 2013.
