Jake Peavy Activated from the DL

May 9, 2011

Jake Peavy is set to make his 2011 debut on Wednesday against Anaheim. He was 7-6 last year for the White Sox with a 4.63 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, and 93 strikeouts in 107 innings. He hasn’t thrown 200 innings since 2007, but he is worth a look in deeper leagues.
Peavy started off slow last year, posting a 7.85 ERA in 28-2/3 April innings and a 5.09 ERA in 40-2/3 May innings. He settled down, posting a 1.75 in 36 June innings, before being lost for the season on July 6th.
The Angels strikeout nearly as much as anyone if you are looking to start Peavy in his season debut. Just know that it is a risk.
