Sox give Peavy extra day's rest
CHICAGO – Added rest in the thick of a heated playoff race was the farthest thing from Jake Peavy’s mind.
But in the best interest of the team – and without consulting Peavy – the White Sox decided it would be best to start him today against the Tampa Bay Rays instead of Wednesday’s series finale against the Cleveland Indians. Although there was no dialogue between Peavy and the coaches, he understood the decision.
The Indians’ success off right-handed pitchers partly influenced the decision to push back Peavy. Cleveland is hitting .260 against right-handers this season compared to .230 against left-handers.
