Peavy is interested in returning to the field in 2018 after sitting out this past season, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Peavy tried to latch on with an organization last spring, but was unable to find a home after posting a 5.54 ERA in 2016 with the Giants. During that season, he compiled a 1.43 WHIP and held a 102:36 K:BB over the course of 118.2 innings. In the event that he gets an opportunity somewhere, the 36-year-old could provide depth whether as a back-end starter or in a club's bullpen, but likely won't receive more than a minor-league contract for this upcoming season.

Peavy is going to throw a private session for visiting Marines in Arizona in the next few days, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 35-year-old still refuses to close the book on his playing career, and although it's tabbed as a private session, it's hard to believe that some teams in need of starting pitching depth wouldn't do their best to be present. Peavy struggled last season to the tune of a 5.54 ERA and ultimately spent time as a reliever for the Giants, but his vast portfolio of major league experience could land him a job if he can effectively throw all his offerings.

Peavy, who is unsigned at this point, is still hoping to find a team to pitch for in 2017, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After a rough year personally and professionally in 2016, Peavy is taking time to be with his family before he returns to the diamond. "It hurts not to be in spring training," Peavy said. "I know that day is coming, but right now being a dad is absolutely No. 1." The 35-year-old posted a career-worst 5.54 ERA across 118.2 innings with the Giants last year, but is hoping he is healthier and more well-rested for the upcoming season. He has said he is not yet ready to commit to a team, but he has been working out and will hold a showcase when he is ready.

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.
