CHICAGO -- Right-handed pitcher Jake Peavy of the Chicago White Sox will undergo surgery to repair a detached latissimus dorsi muscle in his right posterior shoulder on Wednesday at Rush University Hospital-Oak Park, with surgeons from Midwest Orthopedics.

Dr. Tony Romeo, a White Sox orthopedic surgeon specializing in shoulder and elbow repairs, will perform the surgery with assistance from fellow Sox team physicians Dr. Greg Nicholson and Dr. Charles Bush-Joseph.

Romeo was selected to perform the surgery following consultation with numerous shoulder specialists, including Dr. James Andrews and Dr. Lewis Yocum. Romeo is renowned for repairing more "lats" than any surgeon in the United States.

Peavy, 29, is expected to resume throwing by the start of spring training. He will rehabilitate with the team for the remainder of the 2010 season under the supervision of White Sox Head Athletic Trainer Herm Schneider.

Peavy suffered the injury in the second inning of Tuesday's 4-1 victory over Los Angeles-AL. He went 7-6 with a 4.63 ERA (55 ER/107.0 IP), 93 strikeouts and one shutout in 17 starts this season, including a 3-2 record with a 1.67 ERA (7 ER/37.2 IP) over his last six outings.

Peavy is 10-6 with a 4.11 ERA (58 ER/127.0 IP) and 111 strikeouts in 20 starts with the White Sox since being acquired from San Diego on July 31, 2009 in exchange for four pitchers. The 2007 National League Cy Young Award winner owns a career record of 102-74 with a 3.36 ERA (549 ER/1,469.2 IP).
