Chicago's Peavy throws against the Washington Nationals in Washington

White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen confirmed to Mark Gonzalez of the Chicago Tribune earlier this evening that Jake Peavy will indeed return from the disabled list to start Wednesday’s game against the Angels.

Peavy threw 100 pitches while giving up five runs over seven innings last Thursday in his final minor league rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte and was scheduled for a bullpen session prior to tonight’s game against the Angels.

This will be Peavy’s first start since undergoing surgery to repair a detached lat muscle near his throwing shoulder last July.

Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports that Peavy’s replacement Phil Humber will remain in the rotation to start Friday’s series opener against the Athletics while Gavin Floyd will go Saturday. The White Sox haven’t announced anything beyond that, but they are currently kicking around the idea of implementing a six-man rotation.
