(SEATTLE) — Chicago White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy will be out 4-6 weeks after an MRI revealed a non-displaced rib fracture on his left side, the team announced Wednesday.
“It’s just unfortunate that something crazy like comes about,” Peavy said after Chicago beat Seattle 7-5 in 16 innings on Wednesday.
“The hardest thing is there’s nothing to do to help a bone heal quicker. You don’t cast it so you feel normal, but yet you can’t even ride a bike because you’re breathing. There’s not a whole lot of options,” Peavy continued.
Manager Robert Ventura announced that Hector Santiago will take Peavy’s spot in the rotation while he is sidelined.
Peavy is 6-4 with a 4.30 ERA in 11 starts this season.
