Young Wants Trade, Peavy On the Way Back
In other news, White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy is making progress in his recovery from surgery to reattach a lat muscle under his right shoulder. He recently told reporters that he is at about 60 to 70 percent and has started throwing off a mound. No pitcher has ever had an injury quite like Peavy's, so it will be interesting to see if he can come back and be anywhere close to the guy who won 2007 NL Cy Young Award. If he can pitch effectively when he returns, the White Sox will have one of the best rotations in the American League. Peavy would be towards the back end of a rotation that includes Mark Buehrle, Gavin Floyd, John Danks and Edwin Jackson.
