White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy, who hasn't made a start since April 26 because of ongoing back discomfort, has been scratched from his scheduled start Monday against the Royals, reports Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times.

Peavy himself acknowledged that a trip to the disabled list is now a possibility, although such a move would probably be made retroactively.

Peavy's unavailability puts the White Sox, who are already without Gavin Floyd and John Danks, in a tight spot in terms of their rotation. As Van Schouwen notes, starting Chris Sale on short rest on Monday is a possibility, as is bumping up Hector Santiago.

On the season, the 31-year-old Peavy has a 3.38 ERA, 129 ERA+, 1.13 WHIP and 6.50 K/BB ratio in five starts. If a roster move turns out to be necessary, then it'll be the seventh time in his 12-year career that Peavy has been on the disabled list.
