Peavy switches to sim game before rain

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - With rain forecast, the Chicago White Sox had Jake Peavy pitch a simulated game Friday rather than wait around for the exhibition against the San Diego Padres, which was washed out after three innings.

Peavy threw 60 pitches to hitters that included Adam Dunn. and took inning breaks, as he would in a normal game.

``I got just as much or more out of that than any spring game that I'll pitch in,'' he said. ``It was a structured environment, so I was able to use the pitches I needed without the plan being change by the hitter. I kept up a good pace and threw hard. I'm glad we were able to get it in and get some work done without resorting to a batting cage. It was a good day today.''

San Diego's Carlos Quentin made his spring training debut following offseason surgery on his right knee. He had two at_bats before the rain caused the game to be canceled with Chicago leading 4-1.

Quentin was hit by a pitch - he's been hit 117 times during the regular season in seven years - and lined out to center.

``It was nice to get some adrenaline going and track some pitches from an opposing pitcher,'' Quentin said. ``I got some good practice and am figuring out my swing. This a step toward preparing for the 162 games out there waiting for us.''

NOTES: The game won't count in spring training statistics because it didn't go 4 1-2 innings. ... Padres RHP Andrew Cashner, recovering from a cut thumb sustained during an offseason hunting accident, is expected to pitch in his first game of the year Sunday. San Diego OF Mark Kotsay played in the outfield for the first time this year after being confined to DH.
