Sox's Peavy switches to simulated game before rain
GLENDALE, Ariz. – With rain forecast, the White Sox had Jake Peavy pitch a simulated game Friday rather than wait around for the exhibition against the San Diego Padres, which was washed out after three innings.
Peavy threw 60 pitches to hitters that included Adam Dunn, and took inning breaks, as he would in a normal game.
"I got just as much or more out of that than any spring game that I'll pitch in," he said. "It was a structured environment, so I was able to use the pitches I needed without the plan being change by the hitter. I kept up a good pace and threw hard. I'm glad we were able to get it in and get some work done without resorting to a batting cage. It was a good day today."
