— The Chicago White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy was put on the 15-day disabled list because of a detached muscle in the back of his right shoulder, an injury that will almost certainly end his season.

“Obviously this isn’t good news,” Peavy said Wednesday after having an MRI. “You know ... having something completely detached from the bone that’s retracted down in my lat. Not good.”


Peavy was hurt early in Chicago’s victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night. With two outs in the second inning, Peavy delivered a 2-2 pitch to Mike Napoli and then jumped off the mound and raised his right arm before walking straight to the dugout with team trainer Herm Schneider.


The team described the injury as a detached latissimus dorsi muscle in his right posterior shoulder.


Peavy said he will visit or consult with two of the leading orthopedic surgeons in the country, Dr. James Andrew and Dr. Lewis Yocum, to figure out his next step.


A former Cy Young Award winner with the San Diego Padres, Peavy is 7-6 with a 4.63 ERA in 17 starts this season.
