Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - The Chicago White Sox activated pitcher Jake Peavy from the 15-day disabled list Friday and announced that the veteran right-hander will start Saturday's game against the Atlanta Braves.

Peavy was placed on the DL on June 6, two days after the former National League Cy Young Award winner sustained a fracture of his left fourth anterior rib during an outing against the Seattle Mariners.

The 32-year-old prepared for Saturday's assignment by throwing five innings of one-run ball in a rehab assignment with Double-A Birmingham on Sunday.

Peavy went 6-4 with a 4.30 earned run average through 11 starts prior to the injury, though he was tagged for 12 runs and 15 hits in a combined 6 1/3 innings over his two most recent appearances.
