GLENDALE, Ariz. - After throwing his first bullpen session Sunday since suffering right rotator cuff tendinitis, Chicago White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy said he will stay in Arizona to continue his rehabilitation.

Peavy said he will rejoin the team in Chicago in time for their homestand that starts April 7, and then probably start a minor league rehabilitation assignment of about three to four starts.

Peavy said he felt fine after throwing more than 30 pitches off a mound under the supervision of pitching coach Don Cooper. Manager Ozzie Guillen, bullpen coach Juan Nieves and minor league pitching coaches Kirk Champion and Curt Hasler also observed.

Peavy stressed that he would defer to the Sox's medical staff but understands that he will need to build arm strength after not pitching since March 19.

In another matter, pitcher Jeff Marquez wasn't at Sunday's pre-game workout, and his locker was cleaned out - a sign that Marquez was placed on waivers.

Teammates cannot comment or announce which players have been placed on waivers, but the Sox appear to be leaning toward an 11-man pitching staff while carrying utility player Brent Lillibridge and outfielder Lastings Milledge as backups.

The Sox might not finalize their roster until Tuesday, when they could learn whether Marquez has been claimed by another team or has cleared waivers. The Sox will leave Arizona after playing Kansas City on Tuesday.

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.
