The Chicago White Sox will turn to right-hander Jake Peavy on Thursday as the team tries to avoid a home sweep at the hands of the Toronto Blue Jays. Toronto will send out 22-year old starter Henderson Alvarez.
The Sox had won 14 of 16 being running into Toronto. Chicago has lost both games this series without star first baseman Paul Konerko, who reportedly plans on returning to the lineup from a wrist injury on Thursday.
Peavy has been excellent for Chicago this season, entering at 6-1 with a 3.05 ERA and 0.93 WHIP. Alvarez is 3-5 with a 3.75 ERA and 1.29 WHIP.
