Jake Peavy surrendered three runs in six innings Friday in a win over the A's.

Peavy hasn't dominated in any of his four starts since coming off the DL, but he has a reasonable enough 3.51 ERA in that span. He allowed five hits, walked none and struck out two tonight.
Jul 25 - 1:48 AM

Jake Peavy picked up his first win of the season Saturday in the Giants' defeat of the Diamondbacks.

Peavy allowed four earned runs on eight hits, but the San Francisco offense backed him with eight runs. The veteran right-hander now stands 1-4 with a 4.94 ERA and 1.43 WHIP. He's not a great fantasy option in his age-34 season.
Jul 19 - 12:00 AM

Jake Peavy took a loss Wednesday despite limiting the Mets to two runs -- one earned -- over seven innings.

Peavy fanned five, issued just one walk, and scattered six hits, but he was thoroughly out-dueled by Mets ace Jacob deGrom. Peavy has rattled off two very good outings since returning from the disabled list and could be worth a look again in certain matchups. He gets the Diamondbacks in Arizona next week.
Jul 8 - 6:28 PM

Jake Peavy pitched well in his return from the disabled list on Friday, allowing just two runs on three hits over 6 1/3 innings against the Nationals.

Unfortunately, the Giants provided little run support and the veteran right-hander was saddled with a loss for his effort. Peavy walked four and struck out four in the contest. The only blemish on his night was a two-run homer off the bat of Clint Robinson in the seventh inning, which proved to be the difference in the ballgame. He'll face a much easier assignment next time out when he takes on the Phillies on Friday.
Jul 3 - 8:50 PM

Giants activated RHP Jake Peavy from the 15-day disabled list.

Peavy will rejoin the rotation on Friday in Washington. The veteran right-hander has been on the shelf since mid-April with back issues and should probably be avoided for fantasy purposes for the time being.
Jul 3 - 1:53 PM

Jake Peavy (back) will make one more rehab start.

It seems the Giants keep pushing Peavy's return date back because they can't make a decision on who to remove from the rotation. The veteran right-hander is on track to rejoin the big club on July 2. He holds a 4.85 ERA and 27/9 K/BB ratio over 29 2/3 innings across his first six rehab outings.
Jun 23 - 7:48 PM

Jake Peavy (back) is expected to rejoin the Giants starting rotation next weekend against the Rockies.

It's unclear at this point who he may force from the Giants rotation, though Ryan Vogelsong seems to be the most likely candidate. Before hitting the disabled list, Peavy owned a 9.39 ERA and 2.09 WHIP over 7 2/3 innings.
Jun 21 - 7:47 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy confirmed Jake Peavy (back) will be in the starting rotation when he's activated from the disabled list.

Peavy will make one more rehab appearance for Triple-A Sacramento before joining the rotation. With Matt Cain (elbow) also close to returning, Bochy acknowledged he may have to "get creative." Rookie Chris Heston could be the odd man out when Cain comes back.
Jun 20 - 5:38 PM

Jake Peavy (back) will make his final minor league rehab start with Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday.

As long as everything goes according to plan, he'll then be cleared to rejoin the Giants starting rotation next week. As of now, Ryan Vogelsong appears the most likely candidate to get bumped from the Giants rotation upon his return.
Jun 19 - 8:30 PM

Jake Peavy (back) will make one more rehab start before likely being activated from the disabled list.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Peavy could be activated now but that he'll instead make one more rehab start before returning. Peavy has been out since April 18 with the strained back. The Giants will remove a starter from the rotation upon his and Matt Cain's return in lieu of a six-man rotation, Bochy said.
Jun 17 - 8:51 PM

Jake Peavy (back) fanned eight hitters over 4 1/3 innings in Thursday's minor league rehab start at Triple-A Sacramento.

While the strikeouts were a positive to take away from the outing, Peavy did surrender four runs on seven hits in the contest. He's going to need at least one more rehab start before he's cleared to rejoin the Giants rotation.
Jun 11 - 11:18 PM

Jake Peavy (back) will make his next rehab start Thursday with Triple-A Sacramento.

Peavy allowed two earned runs over 4 1/3 innings in his third rehab outing Saturday with Sacramento, throwing 69 pitches. He's expected to get his pitch count up to 80 on Thursday and will probably make one more rehab start after that to get his count to 100. Look for the veteran right-hander to join the Giants in late June.
Jun 9 - 5:44 PM

Jake Peavy (back) will resume his rehab assignment at Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday.

Peavy had renewed back tightness after his last rehab start a week ago, but he got through a 40-pitch bullpen session Wednesday with no issues. He's slated for around 75 pitches on Saturday.
Jun 3 - 1:54 PM

Jake Peavy experienced renewed back tightness after his minor league rehab start with Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday and will be evaluated by a doctor.

Giants skipper Bruce Bochy said that the team will slow play his recovery, which is an obvious setback in his return to the Giants rotation. There is no clear timetable for him to resume throwing at the moment.
