KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Jake Peavy will miss a second consecutive start for the Chicago White Sox because of back spasms.

The team announced the right-hander has been scratched from his start Monday against Kansas City.

Peavy has not pitched since April 26 after being scratched from a Thursday start when his back stiffened up while warming up. He is 3-1 with a 3.38 ERA in five starts this season.

White Sox manager Robin Ventura says a trip to the disabled list is a possibility for the three-time All-Star.

Chris Sale will start Monday against the Royals on his regular four days' rest. Sale will be opposed by Royals right-hander James Shields, a rematch of the season opener that the White Sox won 1-0.
