Veteran Pitcher Jake Peavy Having A Rough Time

Published

on

He is proven. He is capable and from all indications he seems to be well liked.

But former pitcher and current MLB free agent Jake Peavy is having a rough time as of late. But Peavy wants to play.

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reported that last year Peavy lost millions in an investment scam and spent much of the 2016 season distracted by investigations and depositions and all the stress that is associated with them.

“It hurts not to be in spring training,” Peavy told Crasnick.I know that day is coming, but right now being a dad is absolutely No. 1. There’s no way in a million years that I could leave my boys at this time.”

To top things all off when the season ended Peavy had to go through a divorce.

Peavy, 35, has pitched for the San Diego Padres, Chicago White Sox, Boston Red Sox and San Francisco Giants throughout his career and pitched to the tune of a 3.58 ERA in 2015. In 2016, with the Giants, Peavy pitched a 5.54 ERA with 102 K

Mooney had been a solid bullpen option during the last few seasons, but had a nightmare start to the 2019 season posting a terrible 32.40 ERA in just 1.2 innings of work over four appearances.

Carlos Zambrano Attempting Comeback, Signs with Indy Team

Former MLB pitcher Carlos Zambrano is attempting a comeback and has signed with the American Association’s Chicago Dogs, according to the Chicago Sun-Times’ Gordon Wittenmyer.

Zambrano last pitched in the majors back in 2012 with the Miami Marlins, but earlier in his career he finished in the top five of the Cy Young voting in the National League three times as a member of the Chicago Cubs.

Zambrano started his comeback bid last fall when he took the mound for 7 starts in the Mexican League, pitching to the tune of a 5.18 ERA, and performing even worse during a short stint in the Venezuelan Winter League.

Given his recent lack of production, it is a longshot to believe that Zambrano will return to the MLB level, but stranger things have happened.
