The Chicago White Sox have placed Jake Peavy on the disabled list with a muscle tear in his pitching shoulder.
The right-hander suffered the injury in the second inning of his team's victory over the Los Angeles Angels Tuesday night. After delivering a 2-2 pitch to Mike Napoli, he leapt off the mound and lifted his right arm before walking straight to the dugout with a team trainer. Peavy then landed on the 15-day DL the following day, and will likely be shut down for the rest of the season. His reaction after Wednesday's MRI:
Obviously this isn’t good news. You know, having something completely detached from the bone that’s retracted down in my lat. Not good.Not good at all for the Sox, who have managed to win 20 of their last 25 games to move back into contention in the American League Central.
Peavy is 7-6 with a 4.63 ERA in 17 starts this season. The club replaced him on the roster with righty Jeffrey Marquez from the AAA Charlotte Knights, but they’re expected to recall righty Daniel Hudson (11-4 for Charlotte) later on this week to take Peavy’s spot in the rotation.
