Jake Peavy


Peavy was charged with the loss when he allowed six runs and eight hits, including a homer, with 10 strikeouts and three walks in five innings for the Padres in a 7-3 loss to the Florida Marlins on Sunday. The right-hander was suffering from tendinitis in his shoulder in his previous start.


Peavy will make his next start for the Padres on Tuesday against the Brewers, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. The 25-year-old pitcher has been experiencing tendonitis in his shoulder. In his last start on May 28 against the Cardinals he pitched five innings, giving up six runs and nine hits while striking out six.


Peavy allowed three runs in five innings while throwing 67 pitches in a no decision against Japan on Sunday in a World Baseball Classic second-round game. Peavy allowed a leadoff homer to Ichiro Suzuki.


With the Padres clinching the National League West crown and Peavy bothered by shoulder pain earlier in the month, the San Diego ace probably won't make his scheduled turn this weekend. The Padres will use bullpen sessions to prepare Peavy for his playoff start next week.


Peavy's shoulder felt better during his Monday throwing session, and the San Diego Padres believe their ace is on track to start Friday against Washington. The 24-year-old righthander, who hasn't pitched since he blanked Milwaukee for five innings on September 4, is 12-6 with a 2.93 ERA in 27 starts this season.


Peavy is expected to throw on the side before San Diego's Monday night game in San Francisco. Peavy, 12-6 with a 2.93 ERA for the Padres, hasn't pitched since September 4 because of pain in his right shoulder. The club hopes he'll be able to start Friday night against Washington.


Peavy, nursing a sore right shoulder, will not start Saturday against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He is 4-2, 1.87 over his last eight starts, including two complete-game shutouts, while striking out 10.1 per nine innings and holding the opposition to a .189 batting average over that span.


Peavy will work a bullpen session on Thursday, which will determine whether the San Diego ace will be available to make his Saturday start at Dodger Stadium. Peavy has been battling a tender right shoulder, which forced him out of his Sunday start after five scoreless innings against Atlanta.


Peavy has been taking anti-inflammatory medication for a tender right shoulder. Still, the ailment forced Peavy out of his last start on Sunday, after five scoreless innings against Atlanta. The Padres' righthander said he was feeling fatigued before he was replaced by Chris Hammond with a 1-0 lead.


Peavy should make his scheduled start on Tuesday, despite cutting his left hand on an aluminum can and needing stitches on Monday morning. The injury is to his non-pitching hand, and the Padres' young ace probably won't miss a turn. He is 11-6 with a 2.97 ERA going into his Tuesday start at home against Arizona.


Peavy outdueled Roger Clemens on Tuesday in the Padres' 2-0 win. The Padres' ace threw a complete game shutout and gave up four hits and two walks while striking out six. He snapped a brief two-game losing streak with his great performance and improved his record to 11-6 for the season.


Peavy bruised his right middle finger while fielding balls during batting practice on Friday, but decided to take the mound against the Washington Nationals on Sunday anyway. The Padres' righthander did not appear to be bothered by the minor ailment, going the distance to notch his second complete game shutout of the season. He scattered five hits over nine innings, striking out 10 and walking two.


Peavy hurt his right middle finger while fielding balls during batting practice on Friday. It was swollen and painful on Saturday, putting the San Diego righthander's Sunday start at risk.


Peavy didn't figure in the decision, he tossed quite a game in Wednesday's 2-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. The Padres' righthander allowed one run on just two hits over eight solid innings before turning things over to closer Trevor Hoffman in the ninth. Peavy also notched his fifth double-digit strikeout performance of the season, fanning 10.


Peavy lasted just five innings in Thursday's loss to the New York Mets, turning in his worst outing of the 2005 campaign. The Padres' righthander was touched for seven runs on seven hits, including two home runs. With the perfomance, Peavy saw his ERA continue to gradually get higher, going from 3.03 to season-worst 3.42.


After battling an upper-respiratory infection and struggling in his previous three outings, Peavy appeared to be back on track in Monday's dominating performance over the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Padres' ace surrendered just two hits over eight shutout innings, striking out a career-high 13 and walking only one. In his last 14 innings, Peavy has fanned 23 batters.


Peavy's next start has been moved back one day in order to give the pitcher an extra day of rest as he continues to recover from his recent upper-respiratory infection. So instead of pitching Sunday against the Twins, Peavy will start the Monday opener of the series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Darrell May will start Sunday against Minnesota.


An upper respiratory infection that is not far from being pneumonia, according to Padres assistant trainer Jim Daniel, will prevent Peavy from taking the mound against the Chicago Cubs on Sunday, as had been scheduled. Veteran Woody Williams will be activated from the 15-day disabled list Sunday morning, and he will get the nod instead.


Peavy, who is on antibiotics for a bacterial infection, is 50-50 to make his scheduled start against the Chicago Cubs on Sunday. If Peavy cannot go, look for Woody Williams to come off the disabled list and make the start in his place.


Peavy turned in his shortest outing of the season, lasting just four innings in Tuesday's meeting with the Milwaukee Brewers. Prior to his departure, the Padres' righthander allowed four runs on six hits, struck out five and walked one. Despite the rough outing, his season ERA bumped up only slightly from 2.00 to 2.37.


Peavy notched the first shutout and complete game of his major league career, silencing the Arizona Diamondbacks' bats in Thursday's 10-0 victory. The Padres' righthander, who allowed just two hits, struck out two and walked none, improved to 5-0 in 10 starts this season and lowered his ERA to 2.00.


Peavy, who is scheduled to start on Saturday, has conceded that he has been going through a "dead arm" stretch lately, perhaps because of having to miss his last two spring training starts with a groin injury. Peavy has allowed 11 earned runs in his last three starts (21.1 innings).


Peavy, who was limited by a minor groin strain in spring training, showed no lasting effects from the injury in Thursday's home opener against the Pittsburgh Pirates, allowing just four hits in 6.2 shutout innings. The Padres' righthander, who turns just 24 late next month, struck out 10 and walked two, but did not figure into the decision.

Last season, Peavy went 15-6 with a league-leading 2.27 ERA in 27 starts. He finished the year with 173 strikeouts and 53 walks in 166.1 innings of work.
