After X-rays, Jake Peavy says right wrist ‘will be OK’

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — After the Red Sox‘ 4-3 loss to the Rays Thursday night, Jake Peavy emerged from the trainer’s room with his right wrist taped up. The pitcher had been hit with a sixth-inning line drive off the bat of Tampa Bay’s Desmond Jennings.
Peavy stayed in to throw three more pitches (along with a one-hop pickoff throw to first baseman Mike Napoli), retiring Jose Lobaton to end the sixth, before calling it a night.
After the game Peavy had X-rays, which came back negative. The righty said he believed the injury was just a bruise and wouldn’t be anything to worry about.
“Just the line drive hit me on the wrist, the outer part of the wrist,” he said. “It will be OK.”
Peavy got a no-decision, allowing three runs on four hits over six innings, while tying a season high with five walks. He has allowed three or more runs in each of his last two starts after not managing the feat in his previous four starts.
