SEATTLE, June 5 (UPI) -- Chicago White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy has a rib fracture on his left side and will be out 4-to-6 weeks, the team announced Wednesday.

The extent of the injury was discovered during a magnetic resonance imaging exam performed in Seattle.

The right-hander exited Tuesday's game against the Mariners early after yielding a two-run double to Raul Ibanez in the third inning. He threw just 42 pitches in allowing six runs for the second consecutive outing.

Peavy has gone 6-4 with a 4.30 ERA in 11 starts, surrendering 63 hits over 67 innings while walking 15 and striking out 66.

His spot in the rotation will be taken by left-hander Hector Santiago, who has compiled a 1-4 record with a 3.40 ERA in 15 games (five starts) this season.
