The San Francisco Giants will have to wait a bit longer to welcome starting pitcher Jake Peavy to the rotation.
Following his minor league rehab start on Wednesday the veteran right hander experienced more back tightness. Peavy will be reevaluated by a doctor and the Giants will take their time with the 33-year-old.
