Peavy, who said the surgery would be performed Wednesday at Rush Presbyterian hospital in Chicago, vowed to pitch again.

“I hope to be up and throwing by spring training,” Peavy said. “My future is not in jeopardy.”

Peavy turns 30 in May 2011; no longer young, he’ll have a tough rehab. For those Cubs fans who never wanted Peavy on the North Side, this could be vindication, although this injury appears to be more of a freak than anything else.
