Chicago - White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy underwent successful surgery on Wednesday to repair a detached latissimus dorsi muscle in his right posterior shoulder.

The injury will sideline Peavy for the remainder of the season.

"Surgery could not have gone any better," the team said in a release. "We were very pleased with the results and are hopeful that Jake will be ready by the start of Spring Training 2011."

Peavy, the 2007 NL Cy Young Award winner with San Diego, was 7-6 with a 4.63 earned run average in 17 starts during his first full season with the White Sox. Chicago acquired him last season from the Padres.
