Jake Peavy- Back to the Top?

As I wrote in a much earlier piece (Peavy the Pud or Peavy the Stud) Jake Peavy could be th sleeper of 2011. He just completed a 59 pitch simulated game at the Sox’s Arizona Training facility. I strongly recommend stashing him on your DL roster now before the the rest of the fantasy world catches on!

Friday, Peavy will start a game in double A. He is shooting for 75 pitches. If he is able to accomplish this a return to the majors within 3 weeks is not out of the realm of possibility. By no means am I saying that Peavy is a slam dunk. Recovery from his latisimus dorsi muscle surgery is a tall task. Add to that the tendinitis that he experienced in his rotator cuff and he still seems a bit brittle. However, Peavy does seem determined to go out on his own terms and not the terms of his body.

I went to grab my fav whipping boy but one of my competitors grabbed him off waivers while I was napping. Don’t let that happen to you! Big Risk brings big rewards!
