Peavy to pitch this season after all?

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Jake Peavy threw a bullpen session over the weekend at Citi Field and said he didn’t feel any pain. He’s been out since June 9 following ankle surgery.

”The biggest thing was everything was pain-free,” Peavy said. ”The ankle was a non-issue. I threw about 50 pitches and threw all my pitches, trying to get a feel to accelerate this thing as fast as we can to get back out there. Once again, you have to be smart about it. It was a good day.

A couple of weeks ago it was reported that Peavy might not be able to pitch again this season. But just based on this report, it appears that he could rehab and come back within the next three to four weeks.

The Sox are in a tight race with the Tigers and Twins in the AL Central and could certainly use the boost from Peavy if he can get healthy.
