When Jake Peavy was a member of the Chicago White Sox from 2009-2013, I liked him being on the team, and he was one of my favorite pitchers to watch.

Injuries caught up with Peavy some with the White Sox, and with their being a market for him during the dismal 2013 of the White Sox he and the White Sox parted ways. Peavy eventually was apart of the World Series champion Boston Red Sox last season, going from almost worst-to-first in that trade.

Now on Wednesday afternoon the White Sox will face their old pal once again this season, but now as a member of the San Francisco Giants where he’ll oppose Jose Quintana.

Looking back the the White Sox career of Peavy, he was 36-29 overall with a 4.00 ERA. In 84 games (83 starts) Peavy pitched three complete games and a total of 537.2 innings with Chicago.

This season with the Red Sox and Giants, Peavy is 1-12 overall with a 4.73 ERA and 112 strikeouts. Since being traded to the Giants, Peavy is 0-3 with a 4.82 ERA. He’s not having his best season by far.

Again, I’ll always enjoy watching Peavy pitch, and even though the White Sox never made it to the postseason with him on the roster.

I wish him the best of luck for the rest of the season, except if course on Wednesday afternoon.
