Bochy: Giants not planning to rush Jake Peavy back from injury


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Giants starting pitcher Jake Peavy played catch for a second straight day Thursday, per CSN Bay Area. However, the Giants don't have a timetable for his return from back and hip injuries. 

"I talked to Jake for quite a bit this morning; he's doing better," manager Bruce Bochy said. "I do want to slow play him a little and not rush him back like we probably did (for his first start) in San Diego."


Giants place Jake Peavy on 15-day DL with back strain


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) The Giants placed starting pitcher Jake Peavy on the 15-day disabled list with a back strain and recalled catcher Andrew Susac from Triple-A Sacramento prior to Saturday's game against Arizona, per the team's official website.

Peavy was unable to make it past the fourth inning in Friday's start against the Diamondbacks, after he began experiencing tightness of the sacroiliac joint in the lower back, which first popped up on him during a long second inning, per Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.

Peavy began the season 0-2 with a 9.39 ERA, a 2.08 WHIP and 7:4 K:BB ratio over 7 2/3 innings. He'll be eligible to return in early May.


Giants P Jake Peavy fails to get past fourth inning Friday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) Giants pitcher Jake Peavy was able to get through the first two innings of Friday's loss to the Diamondbacks without any trouble, but he began to unravel in the third.

Peavy surrendered four hits and three runs during the third inning. He returned for the fourth, but was only able to record two outs before he was taken out of the game.

"I didn't make good pitches. I was plenty good enough to be out there. I've gotta help the team more than I did," he said, per CSN Bay Area. 

Over the 3 2/3 innings of work, Peavy gave up four runs on eight hits. He walked one and struck out two.

Peavy has yet to get past the fourth inning in each of his two starts this season. He is now 0-2 with a 9.39 ERA.

His next scheduled start is expected to be Thursday against the Dodgers


Giants P Jake Peavy gave up four runs in loss to Padres


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Giants pitcher Jake Peavy allowed four earned runs on four hits during Sunday's 6-4 loss to the Padres. 

Peavy went four innings and struck out five betters and walked three. Peavy gave up a grand slam to Wil Nieves in the fourth inning.

"It was just that one pitch," Peavy said after the game, per the Associated Press. "You could go back and look at the game and there it is, the one pitch. I wasn't sharp by any means in that inning but we got soft contact. I just wasn't able to avoid a couple of outs and made a bad pitch to Nieves, obviously."

Peavy, who was credited with the loss, had been dealing with some back pain but came out of Thursday's bullpen session without a problem. 

Peavy's next scheduled start is this Friday against the Diamondbacks.

"I just have the biggest smile in the world on my face because I know we've got it where it's supposed to be," Peavy said. "I hope it stays that way."

Manager Bruce Bochy acknowledged that Ryan Vogelsong will make the start if Peavy can't go on Sunday, per Comcast SportsNet Bay Area.

by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Giants pitcher Jake Peavy will throw a bullpen session on Thursday to test his back, reports CSN Bay Area.

"We'll re-evaluate him tomorrow when we get to San Diego and see where we're at," manager Bruce Bochy said. "But he feels a lot better."

Peavy went in and had an hour of intense treatment on his back.

"It's made some really nice improvement," Bochy said.

Peavy finished the spring with an ERA of 9.64 with 11 strikeouts and six walks on 31 hits given up in 18 2/3 innings pitched.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Giants pitcher Jake Peavy experienced some soreness in his back during Tuesday's bullpen session, manager Bruce Bochy told reporters, per Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. Bochy revealed that he is unlikely to make Sunday's start at San Diego, and will likely be placed on the disabled list. He added that a decision won't come until Wednesday, per MLB.com.

Giants pitcher Jake Peavy to miss start Tuesday with back tightness


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) Giants pitcher Jake Peavy will miss his scheduled start Tuesday against the Diamondbacks with back tightness, manager Bruce Bochy said Monday per CSN Bay Area.

Ryan Vogelsong will get the call for Tuesday's game. Bochy hopes Peavy will be able to start during their next series against the Padres. Peavy struggled in his final two starts of spring training and posted a 9.64 ERA with 11 strikeouts and six walks in six starts.


Giants still listing Jake Peavy as Tuesday's starting pitcher


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) After two poor Cactus League games to close the spring, there has been some concern as to whether the Giants would start pitcher Jake Peavy for Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks. 

However, according to the San Jose Mercury News, the Giants are still listing Peavy as their starting pitcher for the game. 

Peavy has admitted to dealing with a dead arm, which is likely contributing to his recent struggles. On Monday, Giants general manager Bobby Evans said there's a chance Ryan Vogelsong, previously set to open the year in long relief, could start instead of Peavy.  

In 2014, Peavy went 7-13 for both the Red Sox and Giants and posted a 3.72 ERA in 32 games. 


Giants could start Ryan Vogelsong Tuesday, rest Jake Peavy


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2015) The Giants are considering using pitcher Ryan Vogelsong as the starter for Tuesday's game against the Rockies in order to allow pitcher Jake Peavy to have more time to prepare for the regular season, ESPN reports.

The Giants don't have an off-day during the first two weeks of the season, and Peavy, who has struggled this spring and has admitted to battling a dead-arm phase, could be skipped the first time through the rotation and effectively give the team a six-man rotation over the first week of play. Peavy would presumably make his regular-season debut Sunday against the Padres in San Diego.

Vogelsong, who made 32 starts last season but is not expected to serve as a full-time starter this year while the rotation is at full strength, posted a 6.45 ERA and 17:7 K:BB ratio in 22 1/3 spring innings.


Giants' Jake Peavy struggles in final spring outing Thursday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2015) Giants pitcher Jake Peavy allowed seven runs (six earned) on seven hits and three walks in 3 1/3 innings while striking out two in his final spring start Thursday against the A's.

Peavy said Sunday that he's been dealing with a dead-arm phase, and he certainly didn't have his best stuff in his last start before the regular season. He finishes the spring with a 9.64 ERA and 12:6 K:BB ratio in 18 2/3 innings. The Giants have yet to announce the rotation schedule for the beginning of the season but Peavy could be in line to face the Diamondbacks during the team's first series.


Giants' Jake Peavy battling dead-arm phase


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) Giants pitcher Jake Peavy admitted Sunday that he's going through a dead-arm phase, which contributed to his mediocre performance Saturday, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

"It was a tough day all around for me. I didn’t feel the best," Peavy said Sunday morning. "The arm didn’t respond. It just didn’t have the life that you really want."

Peavy gave up six runs (five earned) in 3 1/3 innings Saturday to elevate his spring ERA to 8.22 in 15 1/3 innings. He'll have one more start to tune up before making his regular-season debut and plans to work in the training room and on the massage table to freshen his arm.

"There’s no doubt I’m going through it," Peavy said. "Sometimes when you have the dead arm, and you try to push through it, you overthrow the ball. When you’re going through dead arm, you don’t have that finish."


Giants' Jake Peavy adds new pitch mid-game


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) Giants pitcher Jake Peavy began throwing a new pitch in his most-recent start, in the middle of the game. 

Peavy began throwing a four-seam changeup, a pitch he'd never even tried to throw before he was on the mound in a spring game. 

"It's unlike anything I've ever thrown before," Peavy said, per MLB.com's Barry Bloom. "The first five I threw bounced to the plate, they were about 50 feet."

By the time he left the game, he was already recording strikeouts with the new pitch. 

"It just got better as the game went on," said Peavy. "I'm excited about it. I'm excited to have this time to work on a little bit of everything."


Giants' Jake Peavy to start Wednesday for Giants


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2015) Following Madison Bumgarner's exhibition start on Tuesday, the Giants will go with Jake Peavy to start Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Athletics, manager Bruce Bochy announced via MLB.com

Ryan Vogelsong will pitch Thursday against the Cubs and Yusmeiro Petit will go Friday against the Rangers.

Report: Marlins open discussions with pitcher Jake Peavy


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2014) Sources have indicated the Marlins recently opened a dialogue with free-agent pitcher Jake Peavy’s representatives, according to ESPN.com.

While no deal appears imminent, Peavy is anxious to find out which team he will pitch for in 2015 and said that team will receive a motivated player.

"I have a lot to prove," Peavy said, per ESPN. "I need to have people doubting me, because that's when you dig deep and find out what you're made of."

Peavy went 7-13 with a 3.73 ERA in 2014, but was disappointed with his performance in Game 6 of the World Series which was his last pitching appearance of the season.

"If I went out and threw a shutout in Game 6 or pitched the way I did down the stretch, maybe it would have allowed me to relax too much this winter and not play this role I need to play," he said.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) Giants pitcher Jake Peavy couldn't escape the second inning in Tuesday's loss, giving up five earned runs on six hits and one walk in 1 1/3 innings while striking out two in his team's 10-0 loss to the Royals in Game 6 of the World Series.
