Jake Peavy is walking around pain free. He's doing all he can to get back in shape so that the Padres can make the decision as to whether he'll play again this year. He and the rest of the DL are playing pranks. Jake says pitcher have to be the hunters or be hunted. Latos is a hunter. Darren Smith ribs Peavy about pitchers not having scouting reports in the All Star game.

"I can't imagine, the way I feel today, that I wouldn't be able to play," Peavy said. "We have another 10 weeks left in the season. I can't imagine it's going to take 10 weeks to get my arm ready to play. I'll certainly try and get there as soon as possible."

"Getting out of the boot's a big sigh of relief after five weeks," Peavy said. "I was super-excited just to be able to play catch for the first time, and all went well. I haven't thrown in five weeks, haven't been able to walk (without the boot) for five weeks. Now I'm walking around pain-free and looking to start getting stronger."

"When it's been immobilized for that long, you always have those doubts that it's going to hurt the last time you had the boot off," Peavy said. "All the questions were answered in a positive way, to make sure I was pain-free and the tendon had healed."
Rotation questions swirl amid loss
I can't keep our rotation straight. Staufffer, Latos, Gallagher and Banks all might be candidates.
