Jake Peavy (back) will be activated Wednesday.

Peavy has been on the disabled list since August 27, retroactive to August 21, with a lower back strain. The veteran right-hander owns a rough 5.55 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 116 2/3 innings this season with San Francisco. He'll be used in long relief initially.
Sep 6 - 6:52 PM

Jake Peavy received a cortisone shot for his lower back strain on Tuesday.

That'll keep him shut down for the next couple of days, but it should ultimately expedite his recovery. Peavy landed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday. He's aiming to return around mid-September.
Aug 30 - 7:54 PM

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

The Giants had been hopeful he would recover in time to make his scheduled start on Saturday, as he was already filling in for the injured Matt Cain. Albert Suarez will start in his place against the Braves on Saturday.
Aug 27 - 3:08 PM

Jake Peavy will start Saturday against the Braves.

Peavy is filling in for Matt Cain, who was placed on the disabled list with a lower back strain. Cain could be back next week, so this might be the only start Peavy gets. He was dropped from the rotation after the Giants acquired left-hander Matt Moore at the trade deadline.
Aug 25 - 9:19 PM

Jake Peavy has been sent to the bullpen.

Matt Moore, acquired from the Rays at the August 1 trade deadline, will take over his rotation spot Thursday against the Phillies. Peavy had registered a 5.47 ERA in 21 starts this season for the Giants.
Aug 2 - 5:37 PM

Jake Peavy scattered five hits, three runs and a walk over four innings Saturday in a no-decision against the Nationals.

Peavy logged seven strikeouts before being lifted for a pinch-hitter in the fourth inning. The 74-pitch effort represented his lightest workload since May 20. The right-hander hasn't looked sharp over his last four outings, going 0-2 in that span with a 6.98 ERA. He'll look for better results Friday against the same team he just faced.
Jul 30 - 8:10 PM

Jake Peavy gave up three homers and six runs over five-plus innings Monday in a loss to the Reds.

Peavy had a great run in late May and June, but he's given up 20 runs -- 17 earned -- over 25 1/3 innings in his last five starts. His rotation spot could again come into jeopardy if he's not better next time out.
Jul 26 - 1:55 AM

Jake Peavy allowed two runs on seven hits over 4 1/3 innings Saturday, settling for a no-decision against the Diamondbacks.

Peavy didn't pitch terribly badly -- rather, the results weren't terribly bad -- but Giants manager Bruce Bochy was proactive with his bullpen when Peavy put two runners on in the fifth inning. Peavy missed out on the chance for his sixth win in the process, remaining at 5-7 with a 5.09 ERA and 1.45 WHIP through 18 starts. He'd actually been pretty good over the previous month before Saturday's outing, and Peavy will look to get back on the right track after the All-Star break.
Jul 9 - 8:04 PM

Jake Peavy struck out six while tossing 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball in a 3-1 victory over the Rockies.

He gave up five base hits and walked a pair on the day, falling just short of going seven innings with his pitch count rising to 109. Peavy has mostly pitched very well of late but was coming off an awful outing against the A's, so it's nice to see him get back on track. He gets the Diamondbacks on Sunday to finish out the first half.
Jul 4 - 7:47 PM

Jake Peavy was tagged for seven runs -- four earned -- in 3 1/3 innings by the A's on Wednesday.

Peavy had gone six straight starts without a homer before giving up two tonight to two guys who had combined for two all year (Jed Lowrie and Yonder Alonso both had one apiece coming into the game). The Giants won't worry overly much about one bad outing on the heels of a nice month-plus, but this is why we still don't trust him in fantasy leagues.
Jun 30 - 1:00 AM

Jake Peavy improved to 4-6 after allowing two runs in seven innings Friday against the Phillies.

Since falling to 1-5 with an 8.21 ERA on May 20, Peavy is 3-1 with a 1.91 ERA in his last six starts. It's not enough to make him a quality pickup in mixed leagues again, but the Giants will certainly take it.

Jake Peavy was defrauded more than $15 million by a financial adviser, according to a filing Tuesday by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Retired pitcher Roy Oswalt and NFL quarterback Mark Sanchez were also involved in this fraudulent scheme, per the filing in U.S. District Court. The SEC is seeking to freeze the assets of this adviser, a man named Ash Narayan, and recoup more than $33 million that he took from the three pro athletes. Peavy told the San Francisco Chronicle that he learned about the fraud on the first day of spring training. "I think I did the best I could to stay focused," he said. "Maybe at times I haven't done my best, but I think the last month is indicative of what I can do to help this team. I’m doing what I can to push the needle forward."
Jun 21 - 7:33 PM

Jake Peavy posted one of his better starts of the season in Sunday's no-decision against the Rays, yielding one run on four hits over six innings.

Peavy struck out eight and walked just one on the afternoon. The nice performance was a surprise, to say the least. Even with this strong outing in the books, the veteran right-hander still holds an undesirable 5.47 ERA and 1.44 WHIP. He will try to repeat Sunday's result in a home showdown with the Phillies next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 19 - 4:45 PM

Jake Peavy's (neck) next scheduled start has been pushed back from Saturday to Sunday.

Peavy is dealing with some minor neck stiffness, so the Giants decided to take advantage of the schedule and give him an extra day of rest. Albert Suarez will face the Rays on Saturday.
