Report: Peavy pulled from start tonight against Indians
A report from the Chicago Tribune states that Chicago White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy will be pulled from his scheduled start tonight against the Indians.
Peavy has been the subject of trade rumors recently, and with the White Sox stranded in the AL Central's basement, a trade looks likely.
Peavy has one year left on his contract after the 2013 season (14.5 million), making his services an attractive offer for a team looking for that final push into October and beyond.
Peavy is 32 years old, and has a 4.28 ERA this season. He won the Cy Young Award in 2007.
With Peavy pulled from tonight's start, Chicago will have to find a last-minute replacement, giving the Indians another break.
The Chicago Tribune also reports that Andre Rienzo will be called up from AAA Charlotte to make the start. He will make his major-league debut.
