Peavy talks about injury

Jake Peavy is on the 15-day disabled list after detaching the latissimus dorsi muscle in his right posterior shoulder during Tuesday night’s start against the Angels. I asked Peavy if surgery _ which would likely end his season _ is going to be necessary. “That looks to be the probable route,” Peavy said in front of his locker at U.S. Cellular Field Wednesday afternoon. “But we still have a lot of consulting we're going to do simply because it's rare. It's not a clear-cut injury. Our doctor wants to have input from other doctors. “I think with the tear being completely off the bone and it (lat muscle) being retracted as far as it is, I think that they're saying (surgery) is the only way to go.” What a shame, not only for the classy Peavy, but for the White Sox as well. “It's just part of being a baseball player, being an athlete,” Peavy said. “All athletes play with something wrong almost every night. Half the guys that hit the field tonight will have some nagging injury going on. You just try to get through it.” More later.
