Do anything. Peavy is hurt again. This time it’s not an elbow or even an ankle. Someone how Jake Peavy has managed to completely detach his right Latisimus Dorsi. This injury is more common for hardcore bodybuilders than starting pitchers. In fact, the surgery for this injury is uncharted territory. People are already considering Jake Peavy to be the new Tommy John.
Some pitchers are just fragile. Whether its because they were overworked as young guns or they are just genetically more susceptible to injuries, high-maintenance aces seem to drop like flies. I consider a lot of them to be like pure-bred horses. Years have been dedicated to finding and grooming these talents to do one thing and to be the best at it. When injuries are this prevalent, people can’t help but have the nasty “S” word pop up in their minds. Given the high level of competition in baseball, like horse racing, I really would not be surprised if the majority of players were looking for an edge. Maybe Peavy and others are just more susceptible to injuries because of maximum-effort deliveries and tireless work ethics….or maybe there’s more. I’m not making an allegations but only asking people to think. Peavy is not Jose Canseco, but neither was JC Romero.
