Chicago White Sox starter Jake Peavy is probably going to get traded in the next three days. that is, if you believe Peavy. And honestly, there are a lot of fanbases out there that want nothing to do with Peavy, damning his contract and injury history. But would Peavy be a huge upgrade for a team looking for starting pitching, or would he be a waste of resources?
2012 was the first season since 2008 that Peavy made at least 20 starts or threw more than 120 innings. Injuries have wrecked the 32-year old's promising career, and many people forget just how good he was with the Padres.
While Peavy has dealt with injury issues in recent years, he only had one major arm surgery. In 2010, Peavy had surgery to repair a detached lat, which ended his season. In 2011, he started the year on the DL with tendonitis in his rotator cuff (likely connected to that lat surgery). Since coming off of the DL in May of 2011, Peavy has had just two short DL stints: one for a strained groin t...

So the Red Sox were active last night, pulling off a three-team, seven-player deal involving the White Sox and Tigers that, at its core, saw Jake Peavy coming to Boston and Jose Iglesias shipping to Detroit. The details are complex and, frankly, exhausting, so I’ll just point you to the official team press release.
A lot of folks seem to not like this deal, fearing that we’re...
The Red Sox have announced a three-team trade with the Tigers and White Sox that will send right-handers Jake Peavy and Brayan Villarreal to Boston and shortstop Jose Iglesias to Detroit. The White Sox will receive outfield prospect Avisail Garcia as well as minor league right handers J.B. Wendelken and Francellis Montas and shortstop Cleuluis Rondon. - MLBTradeRumorsThis is...
As the deadline nears we knew the Red Sox had to make a move to bolster their rotation as the uncertainity with Clay Buchholz moving forward. The Red Sox struck gold by adding Jake Peavy from the Whitesox in a three team deal which also included the Detroit Tigers. Peavy is signed through the 2014 season and will make 14.5 million for that season. Some inital notes is there will...
Jake Peavy seems destined to be traded prior to Wednesday’s trade deadline. While Atlanta, St. Louis, Boston and others have all been mentioned as landing locations for the right hander the Oakland Athletics are now seen as the favorites to land him.
Multiple sources have speculated that the Athletics are close to acquiring Peavy from the Chicago White Sox.
While the A’s are...
Back On Sox Radar?According to Jeff Passan of YAHOO! Sports, the Red Sox are "very much in" the running to get White Sox starter Jake Peavy. This is directly contrary to most reports over the weekend. Passan claims that—while still not the favorites to land Peavy—Boston is "motivated" and has the best package of prospects to offer Chicago. Peavy has a 4.28...
The Red Sox’ starting rotation isn’t the same without Clay Buchholz. But it’s nothing to sneeze at either and the Red Sox have to keep that in mind while scouring a thin trade market. Jake Peavy has replaced Matt Garza who was dealt to the Rangers as the most talked about pitcher on the trade market and the Red Sox have been at the forefront of the deadline chatter. Peavy would...
BOSTON — Red Sox manager John Farrell said before Tuesday’s game that he was comfortable with his team’s rotation. But adding a former Cy Young winner to the mix doesn’t hurt, right?
The Red Sox announced shortly after Tuesday’s game that they acquired Jake Peavy from the White Sox as part of a three-team, seven-player deal that also involved the Tigers. Boston acquired...
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.
Earlier Tuesday, a lot of the talk was about whether or not the Red Sox ought to go for it and trade for Cliff Lee. Lee, of course, is an ace, a rare breed, but he’s also paid like one, and reports suggested the Phillies were holding out for a wheelbarrow of prospect talent, along with complete contract assumption. People occupied both sides of the conversation, but it didn’t...
Per multiple reports, the White Sox have elected to scratch Jake Peavy from tonight’s start in Cleveland and will instead start Andre Rienzo.
Rienzo has been dominant in AAA recently, even tossing a no-hitter. He will also make history tonight, as he’ll be the first Brazilian player to pitch in the MLB.
However, that’s hardly the story with this piece of news....
The Boston Red Sox have acquired Jake Peavy from the Chicago
White Sox in a three-team deal that also sent shortstop prospect
Jose Iglesias to Detroit Tigers.
Andre Rienzo’s roller coaster season is expected to reach a zenith Tuesday night as he’s expected to be promoted to the Chicago White Sox to start against Cleveland while the Chicago White Sox entertain offers for pitcher Jake Peavy with Wednesday's 3 p.m. (CDT) non-waiver trading deadline approaching.
Rienzo 25 will become the first Brazilian native to pitch in the major...
The Detroit Tigers guarded against the expected suspension of their
shortstop, Jhonny Peralta, by adding a gifted young replacement,
Jose Iglesias. Call it the Jake Peavy trade. Or call it Biogenesis
Trade I. Biogenesis Trade II is expected Wednesday.
