Peavy throws side session, close to rehab start

Jake Peavy threw at least 40 pitches today in his side session, according to an official Chicago White Sox statement.

Pitching in the visitors bullpen at Comerica Park, Peavys intensity nearly matched that of a regular start. He reported feeling great, with no issues related to the latissimus dorsi muscle irritation that scuttled his Monday rehabilitation start at AA Birmingham.

Depending on how his lat reacts to the session, including any further breakup of scar tissue from his July 2010 surgery, Peavy could well make his next scheduled rehabilitation start, on April 28.

White Sox may have to deal with Francisco Lindor for a while, according to unlikely source

White Sox may have to deal with Francisco Lindor for a while, according to unlikely source

Sources have confirmed that kids really do say the darndest things. 

In a spring training game Sunday afternoon, 6-year-old Brody Chernoff, son of Indians general manager Mike Chernoff, spilled the beans on his dad's prospective moves. Goated by announcer Todd Hamilton, Brody said that his dad was trying to keep Lindor in Cleveland for seven more years.

On one hand, Brody's honesty rivals a young Abraham Lincoln. Not even Adrian Wojnarowski could cultivate a source so honest and to the point. On the other, his dad probably is a little shocked that contract offer leaks are coming from his own family. 

Either way, though, hearing that Lindor may be in Cleveland for a while is bad news for the White Sox. The 23-year-old stud shortstop has hit over .300 in his first two big-league seasons. So definitely not someone you want to have in your division for years to come. Oh, plus he's absolutely nasty with the leather. 

Cubs fans know all about Lindor's talents, too. The shortstop hit .296 in his first World Series and was almost a key reason the Indians captured the crown. Almost!

Watch the hilarious exchange in the video above.
