After declaring Jake Peavy untouchable on Monday, the Chicago White Sox have reportedly turned around and traded him to the Boston Red Sox. Peavy was scratched from his start Tuesday night as his asking price reportedly dropped enough for several teams to initiate negotiations with the White Sox. Apparently the Red Sox put together the best package for the former National League Cy Young Award winner. Details are sketchy as to what kind of compensation Chicago will receive for the 32-year-old Peavy, but we’ll certainly update that as we get information. All we know right now is that it is a three-team trade, with infielder Jose Iglesias going to the Detroit Tigers. Detroit is in need of a shortstop as current starter Jhonny Peralta is set to be suspended by Major League Baseball for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal. There is no word on who the White Sox will get yet. Peavy is 8-4 with a 4.28 ERA and a 1.14 WHIP in 13 starts this season. He is owed $14.5 million in 2014 and has a $15 million player option for 2015. If he can stay healthy he will definitely provide a boost to a Red Sox pitching rotation reeling from the loss of Clay Buchholz. Buchholz will likely not return to action until late August at the earliest. The Red Sox had contacted the Philadelphia Phillies earlier on Tuesday to inquire about lefty Cliff Lee. But Boston was told it would take top prospect Xander Bogaerts to land Lee. That never had a chance of happening. Arizona was also after Peavy and some considered the Diamondbacks to be the front-runners for his services, but apparently talks were never as serious as first reported. We will update you when we learn the full details of the trade. The post Report: Chicago White Sox trade Jake Peavy to Boston Red Sox appeared first on Midwest Sports Fans.
