Another bit of news from Ed Price of AOL Fanhouse on a slow night in the baseball world.
White Sox starter Jake Peavy underwent surgery on Wednesday in Chicago to repair a detached latissimus dorsi muscle. The procedure is already being called a success and the Sox are hopeful that he will work his way back to full health by the start of spring training next season.
Peavy, 29, turned in a 7-6 record, a 4.63 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP over 17 starts for the White Sox this year. He struck out 93 batters in 107 innings.
The right-hander is under team control through 2012 and has a $22 million option for 2013. If he does not return to the form he showed in San Diego, declining that option will be a no-brainer for the White Sox.
