Peavy's Finger Has Damaged Tendon & Nerves

Well, the 'minor injury' cover-up is over. According the WEEI.com's Alex Speier, Jake Peavy's fishing knife incident "cut through a tendon, resulted in some nerve damage and required surgery". Wonderful. The laceration of his left index finger will clearly have an impact on Peavy's overall readiness. Of course, the charade continues, as the team insists this isn’t really a problem as his "progression" continues. Right. Hey, he's doing a bullpen session on Wednesday! Chill! Come on now—the integrity of the Red Sox medical team should buy it some goodwill, right? Uh, never mind.
