While recovering from a detached lat in his posterior right shoulder, a “blip” was expected in Jake Peavy’s comeback.
It came on March 19, when Peavy was shut down with tendinitis in the shoulder during spring training.
It looks like blip No. 2 came Monday night.
Peavy had to make an early exit from his rehab start with Class AA Birmingham.
UPDATE: Peavy didn't talk to the media after coming out early, and he's scheduled to see a doctor Tuesday.
After Monday's 5-0 loss to the Rays, Ozzie told reporters in Tampa Bay the news is not good, but he'll wait to see how Peavy checks out with the doctor before commenting further.
The 29-year-old starter was initially scheduled to throw 90-95 pitches for the Barons, but Peavy exited with two outs in the first inning after allowing 3 runs on 4 hits.
He threw 15 pitches.
Peavy was expected to make one more minor-league start on Saturday before rejoining the White Sox.
Needless to say, that’s not going to happen.
