Red Sox | Jake Peavy struggling with walks

Boston Red Sox SP Jake Peavy walked five batters Thursday, May 1, and is averaging five walks per nine innings this season. Manager John Farrell said it's nothing mechanical bothering Peavy. "It's something I need to get straightened out," Peavy said. "You pitch carefully to some guys but I'm making mistakes, too."

Fantasy Tip: Peavy's ERA will surely climb if he continues to put hitters on base for free. The way he's pitching right now, Peavy is more of a matchup play to avoid hurting your counting stats too much.
