Jake Peavy pitched well in Tuesday's start against the White Sox, allowing one run over six innings, but took home the no-decision.
Peavy allowed three hits, walked four, and struck out eight, lowering his ERA to 1.93. The veteran has been uncharacteristically spotty with his command, walking 10 in 18 2/3 innings to begin the season, but still has the swing-and-miss stuff to wiggle out of jams. Peavy will face the Orioles his next time out. Apr 15 - 11:56 PM

Jake Peavy pitched 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball and struck out eight against the Rangers on Wednesday.

Peavy gave up a game-tying homer to Mitch Moreland in the seventh to lose his bid for a win. He's impressed in both of his starts to date, amassing a 2.18 ERA, but he doesn't have a victory to show for it. The eight strikeouts tonight matched his high as a member of the Red Sox.
Apr 9 - 7:44 PM

Jake Peavy yielded two runs in six innings Friday in a no-decision against the Brewers.

Peavy missed his spots both inside and out of the strike zone plenty today, but the Brewers only hurt him during a two-run second. It didn't happen today, but he should rack up plenty of wins if he can give the Red Sox starts like this most times out.
Apr 4 - 5:49 PM

Jake Peavy limited the Twins to one run over five innings on Saturday.

Peavy got up to 74 pitches today, putting him in position to throw 90 or so in his first regular-season start. He was kept out of games earlier this spring by a laceration on his left index finger.
Mar 29 - 4:29 PM

Jake Peavy allowed one run, striking out five, over 4 2/3 innings against the Pirates on Wednesday.

Peavy has allowed two runs over 7 2/3 spring innings, and the right-hander said after the game that he feels as healthy as he's been in a long time. Peavy allowed four hits and a walk in Wednesday's outing. His only mistake was a pitch Travis Ishikawa deposited over the fence for a home run.
Mar 19 - 11:23 PM

Making his spring debut, Jake Peavy pitched three-plus innings and allowed one run Thursday in the Red Sox's 4-3 win over the Twins.

Peavy missed time with a laceration on his left index finger, but he still has time to get ready for the first week of the season. He was throwing in the low-90s today, so arm strength doesn't look like a concern.
Mar 13 - 5:26 PM

Jake Peavy (finger) will make his Grapefruit League debut on Thursday.

Peavy was cleared after getting through a 50-pitch bullpen session Saturday with no issues. The veteran right-hander has been behind schedule due to a laceration on his left index finger, but he has time to catch up.
Mar 9 - 9:18 AM

Jake Peavy (finger) will be cleared to make his Grapefruit League debut on March 13 if an extended bullpen session Saturday goes well.

Peavy has been unable to catch return throws due to a laceration on his left index finger. However, it seems likely that he'll be cleared to do so Saturday if that's the last step before game action. While the veteran right-hander is a little behind, things are looking good for him to be ready for the start of the season.
Mar 7 - 9:44 AM

Jake Peavy (finger) was able to wear a glove during Wednesday's 40-pitch bullpen session but was not allowed to catch throws.

He previously had been throwing with no glove, but the right-hander was feeling off-balance. The Red Sox have left open the possibility that the laceration on Peavy's left index finger could force him to the DL to start the year, but it seems likely that he'll be ready.
Mar 6 - 6:14 PM

Ian Browne of reports that it's "still too early to know" whether Jake Peavy (finger) will be ready for the start of the season.

Peavy played long-toss Tuesday and will throw a bullpen session Wednesday, but he's still not able to wear a glove due to a laceration on his left index finger. "Again, the next three days will probably have a lot to do with when he gets to the mound next in a game," Red Sox manager John Farrell said Tuesday. Farrell listed Chris Capuano and Brandon Workman as options to fill in should Peavy need a DL stint.
Mar 4 - 6:19 PM

Jake Peavy (finger) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Wednesday in Red Sox camp.

Peavy will first test his hand with long toss on Tuesday. He sliced open a finger this past weekend while on a fishing trip with his son and needed surgery to prevent potential nerve damage. But it's not a big concern.
Mar 4 - 9:46 AM

Jake Peavy (finger) is hoping to play catch Tuesday.

Peavy had to be scratched from a scheduled Grapefruit League start after cutting his finger with a fishing knife over the weekend. He should be back on track soon and is poised to open the 2014 regular season as Boston's No. 4 starter behind Jon Lester, John Lackey, and Clay Buchholz.
Mar 3 - 9:46 AM

Jake Peavy was scratched from his scheduled start on Monday after suffering a lacerated left index finger.

Peavy incurred the injury with a fishing knife on Saturday and won't throw at all for the next three days. This injury shouldn't impact his availability to be ready for the start of the regular season.
Mar 2 - 5:06 PM

Jake Peavy (finger) threw his first spring training bullpen session on Thursday.

Peavy had been held back due to some inflammation in his right ring finger, but it shouldn't be a concern going forward. "I can't say it's going to be a real long delay for his first outing here in camp," said Red Sox manager John Farrell. "There's still plenty of time to get him up to the appropriate number of pitches to start the season."
Feb 20 - 6:23 PM

Jake Peavy (finger) threw long toss Tuesday.

Peavy was shut down in recent days due to an irritation of his right ring finger, but Red Sox manager John Farrell said that it has subsided. He should be caught up with the rest of the pitchers soon enough.
