FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Red Sox right-hander Jake Peavy was examined by a hand specialist and was assured that there is nothing significantly wrong with his right ring finger, in which he had some soreness last week.

Peavy resumed throwing on Tuesday, doing so off of flat ground. He hopes it's not too much longer before he gets on a mound.

"An encouraging day of long toss with Peavy today and the irritation of the right ring finger seems to be subsiding and good things are happening," said manager John Farrell.

The hope is that Peavy should have a completely normal Spring Training in regards to his progression of inning.

"Once we get to the mound and get a little bit of a mound progression, we'll have a better read on that," Farrell said. "More than anything, the information he took out of throwing today was very encouraging. The discomfort that he felt when he first reported, that's steadily going away. Today was a day to get some long toss in, and he completed it successfully."
