Boston Sports Then & Now:
Just before 11:00 and less than two hours after they beat the Mariners to remain half a game behind the red-hot Rays in the AL East, the Red Sox dealt one of their most promising young players for an established Major League starter. Rumored to be on the move during the days and weeks leading up to the trade deadline, the White Sox have agreed in principle to trade one-time 19-game winner, Jake Peavy, (128-97 career record) to the Red Sox in a three-team trade also involving the Detroit Tigers.
Boston will send 23-year-old infielder, Jose Iglesias, (.330 in 63 games played this season) to the Tigers and Detroit will send outfielder Avisail Garcia to their division rivals in Chicago. Before the deal becomes official, a medical review will take place, according to ESPN and the deal may be announced Wednesday.
Also, Sean McAdam of CSNNE.com tweeted about 35 minutes ago that the Sox will be shipping out at least one other player in the deal, while Nick Cafardo tweeted that Detroit right hander, Brayan Villarreal, may be in the mix as well.
Peavy, who won the NL Cy Young award in 2007 as a member of the Padres, has a record of 8-4 this season in 13 starts for the White Sox, who are in last place and 19.5 games out in the AL Central. He will be owed $14.5 million next season and has a player option for 2015 if he meets an innings pitched requirement, according to Brendan Fitzgerald of Fox 25.
With third base now vacant, the Sox have a decision to make in the near future. They could bring Will Middlebrooks back into his old spot, promote 20-year-old, Xander Bogaerts from Pawtucket, or go in an entirely different direction. I hear Michael Young may be available.

CSN Chicago is reporting that Jake Peavy was pulled from his start tonight with the Chicago White Sox. It doesn't necessarily mean that he is coming to Boston, but we can't rule that out yet.
Also, the Sox are still the biggest player in the Cliff Lee sweepstakes. We already know Bogaerts won't be dealt and no other names have been thrown out in the talks.

It makes sense for the A’s—adding a veteran pitcher to the rotation, that is....
Jake Peavy to Red Sox-Jose Iglesias to Tigers-Avisail Garcia to White Sox
Jake Peavy was finally dealt Tuesday night (pending medicals). Boston is obviously worried about their rotation depth, due to Clay Bucholz’s current ailments.

With Jose Iglesias shipped off to Detroit, Red Sox faithful were left wondering who would fill the vacancy at third base for the Sox. There was speculation that Will Middlebrooks or Xander Bogaerts would get the call-up from Pawtucket, but Brock Holt will take over at the hot corner for now.
