Jake Peavy talks on his current predicament as Chicago White Sox shut down on his training

It was Jake Peavy who was pushing for a hasty shot back at the Major League Baseball challenge recently and now all those ambitions will have to take a step back following a discomfort in surgically repaired rear shoulder. The maestro hurler for the Chicago White sox was ordered to stand down on his training program as Ozzie Guillen put his Opening Day duties in full doubt as the management at the club is looking to reevaluate the situation.

Things look gloomy for the White Sox in Glendale, Arizona, as there are just 10 days left till the starting day of the 2011 Major League Baseball season. The player convinced his manager to play in a fixture against the Oakland Athletics on Saturday, after recovering from a serious flu. The player is now on anti-inflammatory medication and he moved in to getting treatment after there was no way to lessen his pain on his right posterior shoulder.

The player mentioned that his shoulder problem has been on the agenda since the first spring training encounter against the Los Angeles Angels on the fourth of March.

"It's kind of been coming since that first time," said Peavy. "It has been getting a little more uncomfortable as I keep going.

"We want to not let it mount into some bigger issue than it is. But at the same time, I'm thinking it's just part of getting back into the routine. I threw for an awfully long time without any setbacks.

"Once you start going close to game speed like I have, things can pop up," Peavy said. "You're asking your body to do exactly what you're going to do in the regular season. It obviously has caused a little bit of discomfort."

Peavy assured the fans and the press that the problem will get the team to take a small step back in order to evaluate the situation again. He said the procedure will continue for another two days before it can be decided what needs to be done in the coming days.
