Peavy continues to improve from surgery
By Doug Padilla
BALTIMORE -- Jake Peavy continues to improve from surgery to attach a muscle that separated from the bone on the underside of his right shoulder.
Peavy, who underwent the surgery July 14 is resting comfortably, but needs to wait until the six-week mark after surgery to have his recovery properly evaluated. His plan was to be with the team every day after the first road trip of the first half, but has not been with the team during the current road trip.
Top prospect Jared Mitchell also continues to improve after surgery this spring to repair a tendon tear. He was injured while making a catch during spring training.The outfielder's recovery is taking place with Single-A Winston Salem, and he is progressing "very well," according to White Sox trainer Herm Schneider. Mitchell was preparing for his first full season in the organization before he was injured.
Mitchell, the club's first-round pick in 2009, has continued to work on baseball skills that include hitting, running, agility work and taking fly balls, all within a controlled environment. The team's target is still for him to return to action in the instructional league.
