Insight: Peavy (12-5, 4.17 ERA) cut his finger last weekend but it wasn't on his pitching hand. It doesn't sound like Peavy is in any danger of missing the start of the regular season.

Description: Red Sox starter Jake Peavy (finger) may not be ready in time for the start of the regular season, according to
Insight: Peavy suffered a deep laceration on his left index finger with a fishing knife. He was able to throw on Tuesday but hasn't been cleared to put his glove on. "We've got an opportunity to keep his arm moving, keep him in shape," said manager John Farrell. "He'll stretch a little bit with long toss today and the plan is for him to throw a bullpen tomorrow, without a glove. The precaution we have to take right now is making sure he doesn't perspire too much that may cause bacteria or whatever to get into the incision that's still closing up."

Insight: Peavy was scratched from a Grapefruit League start after cutting his finger with a fishing knife. According to Boston manager John Farrell, Peavy "almost cut through his finger," so he may have to miss more than one start. The good news is that the injury was to his non-throwing hand. "The fact is, we can pad that index finger to his glove hand," Farrell said. "It's nowhere near the impact had it been the other hand."

Description: Boston righthander Jake Peavy left spring training on Friday with both his wrist and ring finger wrapped in a bandage, according to Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe.
Insight: Peavy hasn't been a fantasy stud since 2007, though he did pitch well last season, going 12-5 with 121 Ks in 144 2/3 IP. This injury shouldn't sideline him for more than a day or two.

Description: Boston starter Jake Peavy struggled in a no-decision Saturday versus St. Louis.
Insight: Peavy allowed six hits and two earned runs in just four innings of work. He seemed to have no trust at all in his fastball, opting mostly for breaking pitches after barely surviving a two-run, four-hit first inning. As shaky as Peavy looked in the outing, it could have been much worse. Somehow the righthander was able to navigate his way out of a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the fourth inning. He's scheduled to start Game 7 if the series goes that far though his last two performances have done little to inspire confidence.
10/24/2013 7:13:00 PM

Insight: Clay Buchholz is being pushed back a day due to arm fatigue. Peavy is winless in four career postseasons starts (0-3, 10.31 ERA).

Description: We got it right the first time. Jake Peavy will be making his Red Sox debut Saturday against the Diamondbacks.
Insight: Patrick Corbin will make the start for Arizona. Saturday's game at Fenway should be a low-scoring affair.
8/1/2013 3:32:00 PM
Description: Righthander Jake Peavy will start Sunday versus Arizona.
Insight: Peavy's Boston debut will be a nationally televised game on TBS. By pitching on Sunday, Peavy will be going on normal rest. He's sandwiched between Felix Doubront and John Lackey in the Red Sox starting rotation.

Description: ESPN's Buster Olney suggested that Jake Peavy could make his Red Sox debut Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

7/26/2013 8:31:00 PM
Description: Gordon Edes from ESPN Boston is hearing that the Red Sox are the favorites to land White Sox starter Jake Peavy at the trade deadline.
Insight: The Red Sox are looking to add another starter and Peavy might be the best one available. Will Middlebrooks (15 homers for Boston in 2012) could be trade bait.
7/25/2013 8:00:00 PM
Description: White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy won his second straight start Thursday against the Tigers.
Insight: Peavy only gave up four hits in seven innings, but three of them were homers. He's 8-4 with a 4.20 ERA and a 76/17 K/BB in 80 innings this season and may have pitched his last game as a member of the White Sox.
