White Sox likely to lose Peavy for season

CHICAGO — White Sox RHP Jake Peavy went on the 15-day disabled list with a detached muscle in the back of his right shoulder, an injury that almost certainly will end his season.

"Obviously this isn't good news," Peavy said Wednesday after having an MRI exam. "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 win over the Angels on Tuesday night. With two outs in the second inning, Peavy delivered a 2-and-2 pitch to Mike Napoli 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, 29, said the injury was so rare that he would visit or consult with two of the leading orthopedic surgeons in the country, Dr. James Andrew and Dr. Lewis Yocum, to figure out what will be his next step.

"Obviously surgery looks the way that we probably have to go, and if that is it, we'll just ride it, you know," Peavy said.

"We're going to go the best road, whatever the doctors think feels best for me and my career. We're going to do it and obviously I'm going to bust it in rehab and do all I can to be back and be back feeling better and healthier than I am."

That's likely not going to be this season.

A Cy Young Award winner with the Padres in 2007, Peavy is 7-6 with a 4.63 ERA in 17 starts this season. He posted a 1.75 ERA in five starts in June.

The White Sox had won 20 of 25 through Tuesday to climb back into the AL Central race.

FAN RECOVERING: A firefighter was still hospitalized but in good spirits after taking a 30-foot plunge while leaning to catch a foul ball at Tuesday night's Rangers game. Tyler Morris, who works at the Lake Cities Fire Department near Dallas, suffered a head injury and sprained ankle but no internal injuries.

ALL-STAR SECURITY: Anaheim police expect an additional 100,000 visitors during the All-Star Game weekend. Police Chief John Welter said that state, county and federal law enforcement agencies formed a joint task force to ensure that events near Angel Stadium run smoothly through Tuesday.

HOME RUN DERBY: Yankees 2B Robinson Cano will not participate in Monday's event because of a minor back injury.

CLEMENS SAGA: Roger Clemens' lawyers asked a federal appeals court in New Orleans to revive a defamation lawsuit he filed against former personal trainer Brian McNamee, who claims he injected the former major-leaguer with steroids and human growth hormone more than a dozen times. A federal judge in Houston dismissed most of Clemens' claims in February 2009.

PADRES-PIRATES TRADE: San Diego traded RHP Sean Gallagher to Pittsburgh for cash. The Padres designated Gallagher for assignment last week.

DODGERS: RH reliever Ronald Belisario went on the restricted list for personal reasons. No details were available. Belisario had visa issues in the spring after a drunken driving arrest, but manager Joe Torre said there had been no problems since.

ROCKIES: 1B Todd Helton went on the 15-day DL with a stiff back. The contract of Brad Eldred was purchased from Triple A.

TIGERS: With the team needing bullpen help, RHP Armando Galarraga was optioned to Triple-A Toledo and RH reliever Robbie Weinhardt was called up from the Mud Hens. Galarraga is expected to rejoin the team after the All-Star break.
