Jake Peavy's a tough guy, but what were the White Sox thinking when he threw 112 pitches in a minor-league game against the Reds on Saturday? Nobody's going to throw more pitches in a start this spring. You can go ahead and give him the trophy. Peavy apparently wanted the work, but someone who saw the outing said that he seemed to grow frustrated as the Reds' Triple-A team banged him around for seven runs on 12 hits. His fastball was parked in the low-90s and he seemed to have to trick hitters to put them away. Veterans don't worry too much about the results this time of the season, but the numbers say Peavy has been hittable all spring -- 15 hits, eight runs in 11 innings in 'A' games. Pitchers normally like to coast through their final starts of the spring, but Peavy might need to get some results the next time out for his own frame of mind when he makes his 2010 debut April 7 against Cleveland. Your morning Phil: Chapman, Peavy, Santos
