Peavy was pummeled for six runs on nine hits and two walks over 4 2/3 innings for Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday in his second rehab outing. He got his pitch count up to 76, but the Giants obviously want to see him sharper before he rejoins the rotation. Peavy has battled a back strain dating back to spring training.

Jake Peavy (back) could begin a rehab assignment with High-A San Jose on Friday.

Peavy recently threw to hitters at extended spring training. "I had a good week," he said. "I’m going in the right direction." The veteran right-hander has been plagued by a back issue since late in spring training but appears to finally have turned the corner. It's not clear how many rehab starts he'll need before rejoining the Giants' rotation.

Jake Peavy (back) faced hitters on Saturday.

Jake Peavy (back) could be cleared to begin a rehab assignment if he gets through another bullpen session on Friday with no issues.

Jake Peavy (back) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Saturday.

May 1 - 8:16 PM

Jake Peavy (back) played catch Thursday for the second consecutive day.

Alex Pavlovic of says the Giants plan to "slow play it" with Peavy, who has been bothered by back issues since the spring. Meaning the right-hander probably won't be ready until sometime in mid-May. He had a 9.39 ERA in two starts before landing on the disabled list April 18.
Apr 23 - 2:56 PM

Giants placed RHP Jake Peavy on the 15-day disabled list with a back strain.

It's the right move as Peavy hasn't looked sharp in either of his two starts this season. He's expected to be sidelined for 2-3 weeks. Ryan Vogelsong and Yusmeiro Petit are candidates to replace Peavy in the starting rotation. Catcher Andrew Susac was called up from Triple-A to take Peavy's roster spot.
Apr 18 - 5:59 PM

Jake Peavy yielded four runs and eight hits in 3 2/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

It's worth wondering if the Giants would have allowed Peavy to pitch Sunday if they hadn't already lost Matt Cain to the DL. He hasn't been effective either time out while trying to manage his troublesome back, and he still might need a DL stint.
Apr 18 - 1:39 AM

Jake Peavy (back) allowed four runs over four innings in Sunday's loss to the Padres.

Four runs, four innings, four hits against. And on either side of the Connect Four game, three walks and five strikeouts. All four runs came via one swing of the bat, as Will Nieves took Peavy deep for a grand slam in the fourth inning. Peavy had been somewhat questionable coming into the start of the season, as he's been dealing with discomfort in the lower back. Assuming he didn't re-aggravate the injury against the Padres, he'll try to pitch a little deeper into the game when he takes on the Diamondbacks in his next outing.
Apr 12 - 9:08 PM

Jake Peavy (back) is on track to start for the Giants Sunday.

There was some question as to whether Peavy would be ready to go after he was sidelined by lower back discomfort, but he threw a bullpen Wednesday and came out of it alright. It appears he'll avoid a disabled list stint for now.
