"It's nice to have all these options," Peavy said.

Additionally, Peavy could benefit from more-individualized treatment from the athletic training staff on duty.

"I'm hoping that while the team's on the road, I can make a big step forward," said Peavy, the Giants' projected No. 2 starter who went 0-2 with a 9.39 ERA in two starts before being sidelined in mid-April. "There's nothing I hate more than not being with the team. That being said, the best way I can help the team is to go to Arizona."

Peavy last threw in the bullpen on Friday, tossing 40 pitches.

"We had better results with the way my body responded," he said.
