Jake Peavy: Injury is ‘not a big deal’

FORT MYERS, Fla. — A few updates from the Red Sox clubhouse:

• Jake Peavy has some irritation on his right finger, but did not have his hand bandaged up as he did on Friday. He said he might take it easy for a few days, but the injury wasn’t a big deal.

• Peavy said a lot of the players are “holding out hope” that Stephen Drew will return to the team.

• Jose Mijares, a non-roster lefthander, is not expected to arrive at camp until Monday. Lefthander Rich Hill also could be delayed.

• Peavy was asked a lot of questions about the duckboat he purchased. He’s in the process of getting an extensive paint job that will include the World Series trophy and images of his family. The boat will be used at Southern Falls, the ranch Peavy owns in Alabama.

The place has a baseball field, a lake, a bowling alley and just about everything else you can imagine.
