CHICAGO -- The Chicago White Sox reinstated Jake Peavy from the disabled list, and the right-hander will start Saturday's game against the Atlanta Braves.

Peavy has been out since June 6 with a fracture of the left fourth anterior rib. His last outing came June 4 when he struggled over 2 1/3 innings against the Seattle Mariners.

Over 11 starts this season, Peavy is 6-4 with a 4.30 ERA.

Peavy is expected to generate interest from contenders looking to add a proven veteran starter in a trade. The former Cy Young Award winner will be able to make three starts before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.
