The Giants activated Peavy (back) from the disabled list Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Peavy will rejoin the Giants after recovering from a strained lower back. He pitched out of the bullpen in August and figures to work in the same role the rest of the way.

Peavy (back) will be activated from the disabled list Wednesday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peavy spent the last few weeks on the disabled list with his lower back strain, but he is ready to rejoin the big club. He figures to work out of the bullpen but could be used for a spot start if needed.

Peavy (lower back strain) was placed on the 15-day DL on Saturday retroactive to Aug. 21.

EDGE Analysis

Albert Suarez was recalled in a corresponding move and will toe the rubber Saturday opposite Braves right-hander Mike Foltynewicz. Peavy has been wholly ineffective in 29 appearances this season, posting a 5.55 ERA and 1.42 WHIP, and he figures to return to the bullpen assuming he makes it back this season. A return timetable was not immediately provided but he will be eligible to return as soon as Sept. 5.

Bruce Bochy indicated Sunday that Peavy is considered the top candidate to start next Saturday's contest against the Braves, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peavy would take the place of Matt Cain (back) in the rotation for Saturday, but his results as a starter this season (5.47 ERA, 1.40 WHIP) leave much to be desired. While the matchup may be decent enough, Peavy should only be considered as a flier candidate given that his stay in the rotation should be a short one.

Peavy will be heading to the Giants bullpen with the acquisition of Matt Moore, Andrew Baggarly of the Mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was thought that either Peavy or Cain would head to the bullpen after the Giants traded to left-hander Matt Moore. Peavy will most likely serve as a long reliever for San Francisco and will be available to make a spot start when needed. The 35-year-old is having the worst year of his career in 2016.

Peavy didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 5-3 victory over the Nationals, surrendering three earned runs on five hits and a walk over four innings. He struck out seven.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran righty tallied his second-best strikeout total of the season, notching 12 swinging strikes over his four frames. Peavy nevertheless turned in his shortest outing since June 29 due to having thrown 74 pitches over his relatively brief time on the mound. The 35-year-old has only one victory in his last six starts and will try to get back in the win column in a rematch against the Nationals next Friday.

Peavy (5-9) allowed six runs on four hits and two walks with five strikeouts over five innings in a loss Monday to the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Peavy may have given up just four hits, but three of them were home runs, and that was enough to sink him. He has now allowed five homers in his past two starts and has allowed multiple home runs four times this season. With his fastball averaging a career low 88.8 mph, Peavy's margin for error is as low as it has ever been, and when he's missing in the zone, disaster will strike.

Peavy (5-8) pitched six innings, allowing four runs on three hits and one walk while striking out six in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Peavy, a key member of Boston's 2013 World Series champions, held his former team to three hits, but two of those left the park. David Ortiz, who entered the game without an extra-base hit in his career against Peavy, dealt a crushing blow with his fourth-inning three-run homer. The 14-year veteran now owns a 5.15 ERA and 1.40 WHIP through 19 starts this season. He'll toe the rubber for his next start Monday at home against the Reds.

Peavy allowed two runs on seven hits, struck out three and walked one over 4.1 innings in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander pretty much cruised through the first three frames, but ran into trouble in the fourth, allowing a pair of runs. When two of the first three Diamondbacks batters reached in the fifth, Peavy was yanked from the game. San Francisco was leading at the time, but he failed to go the minimal five innings to qualify for the win. He is 5-7 with a 5.09 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 72 strikeouts in 93.2 innings this season.

Peavy (5-7) allowed just one run on five hits and two walks with six strikeouts over 6.2 innings in Monday's win over the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Peavy bounced back well from a 3.1-inning start last time out against Oakland to record his fourth quality start in his last five chances. In his past eight starts, Peavy has found a groove, as he now has a 4-2 record with a 2.27 ERA and a 33:11 K:BB over 47.2 innings. Still, his opening to the year was so bad he owns just a 5.04 overall ERA in 2016.
