Peavy (back) is slated to come off the DL on Friday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Peavy has been on the DL since mid-April, but he'll rejoin the rotation Friday, one day after Matt Cain. Tim Lincecum will hit the DL on Thursday to accommodate Cain, but manager Bruce Bochy refused to reveal how the team will shuffle the starting staff going forward. Tim Hudson would appear to be the primary candidate to fall out of the rotation.

Peavy (back) will receive one more rehab start before being activated, MLB.com's Chris Haft reports.

It was thought that there was a good chance Peavy would make a start for the Giants this weekend, but his return to the rotation will delayed until next week. Nothing final has been determined with regard to which day he will start, or who exactly he will replace, but the best guess would be July 2, with Tim Hudson heading to the DL to get some rest. In really deep leagues, the time to grab Peavy is now.

Peavy (back) will likely rejoin the rotation next weekend against the Rockies, CSN Bay Area reports.

Peavy gave up one run over six innings in Sunday's outing for Triple-A Sacramento, making what will likely be the last rehab start of his assignment. With Matt Cain (forearm) also nearing a return, it seems likely that only one of Tim Lincecum, Tim Hudson and Ryan Vogelsong will keep his spot in the rotation.

Peavy (back) will make another minor league rehab start, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The right-hander built his pitch count up to 95 in his outing with Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, allowing three runs on five hits with five strikeouts over seven innings. Manager Bruce Bochy suggested Peavy is healthy enough to return now, but the team will send him for a sixth rehab start, meaning June 26 would likely be his earliest possible return date. The skipper also said that the team is not planning to go with a six-man rotation.

Peavy (back) will make another rehab start at Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, Amy Gutierrez of CSN Bay Area reports.

It will be the fifth rehab outing for Peavy, and his fourth with Sacramento. He's been hit hard during each of his starts at Triple-A, but a 15:4 K:BB ratio during his three turns suggests he's doing a good job of finding the strike zone. After building his pitch count to 83 his last time out, Peavy figures to reach the 90 or 100 mark Tuesday while covering around six innings. If he notices no setbacks during the outing, he'll likely make his return to the Giants over the weekend, though it's unclear if he'd displace any of the team's current rotation members.

Manager Bruce Bochy indicated Peavy (back) finished his rehab start feeling "great," but said he will not be rushed back, Jayson Stark of ESPN reports.

Peavy experienced some back tightness in his previous rehab start, so it's a good sign that his most recent one went well. He'll likely require at least a couple more before rejoining the club, but a return at some point in June seems plausible if he can avoid setbacks.

Peavy experienced more back tightness after his rehab start with Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday, Amy Gutierrez of CSN Bay Area reports.

The right-hander's rehab will be put on hold for the moment, with manager Bruce Bochy saying the team will slow play it with him. Peavy will see a doctor Friday to determine the true extent of the setback.

Peavy (back) will make at least two more rehab starts, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Peavy struggled in his second rehab outing, allowing six runs over 4.2 innings for Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday. He was previously expected to make just one or two more rehab appearances after Wednesday's, but manager Bruce Bochy is now saying that the right-hander will have at least two more outings in the minors. Peavy is thus unlikely to return until the second or third week of June.

Peavy (back) is scheduled to make a rehab start for Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday, CSN Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic reports.

It was previously reported that Peavy may only need two or three rehab outings, and Wednesday's start will mark his second of the assignment. He thus seems to be on track to join the Giants in early June.

Peavy (back) is scheduled to throw 50 pitches in his rehab start Friday, and may only need two or three starts before rejoining the big league team, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Peavy is slated to be re-evaluated following his first rehab appearance Friday, but if all goes according to plan he'll pitch again Wednesday and then could return to the majors shortly after that. Barring a setback, the righty seems to be on track for a late-May or early-June return.
