The White Sox have finally mapped out a timetable for Jake Peavys return from rotator cuff tendinitis.

Peavy allowed only two runs in a six-inning minor league rehab start Wednesday at Triple-A Charlotte and has been informed that he could make his 2011 debut as early as April 29 against the Orioles.

Peavy will make two more rehab starts at Charlotte, one on April 18 and another on April 23. If those go well and hes able to tally over 100 pitches in both outings, the White Sox will activate him.

Philip Humber will continue to draw starts in Peavys absence. He limited the Rays to four hits and only one earned run over six innings last week, earning his first victory of the year in impressive fashion. Chances are things wont go as smoothly next time out.
