MLB: Red Sox Acquire SP Jake Peavy in Three-Team Trade

Jul 31 2013, 12:40am CDT | by

The Boston Red Sox acquired former Cy Young Award winner Jake Peavy in a three-team trade involving the Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers on Tuesday.

This was confirmed by ESPN Boston, which also reports the Tigers received infielder Jose Iglesias in the trade. The White Sox wound up with outfielder Avisail Garcia, right-handed pitching prospects J.B. Wendelken and Francelis Montas as well as infielder Cleuluis Rondon.

In addition to Peavy, Boston also gets Brayan Villareal, who is currently pitching in the minor leagues. 

Peavy, who currently has an 8-4 record with a 4.28 ERA in 13 starts, is a three-time All-Star and former Cy Young Award winner while with the San Diego Padres in 2007. He has $5.19 million remaining in his contract for 2013 and is owed $14.5 million next season, says the Boston Globe's Peter Abraham

White Sox general manager Rick Hahn raved about Garcia, who averaged .241 and hit two home runs and 10 RBIs in 30 games with the Tigers.  

"Garcia is a very young, five-tool player who already has spent time in the major leagues. Our scouts are extremely optimistic about his future and view him as a potential impact talent for many years to come."

In Iglesias, the Tigers landed a potential and strong defensive replacement for Jhonny Peralta, who may be suspended for 50 games due to his alleged involvement in the Biogenesis scandal, per USA Today Sports' Bob Nightengale. Iglesias was batting .330 for the Red Sox as a rookie. 

Tigers president David Dombrowski spoke highly about Iglesias' versatility as an infielder. 

"We are excited to be adding a quality player to our middle infield. He is a young player that will provide a lot of depth and has had success playing a variety of roles in the infield."

The three-team deal should be completed before the 4 p.m. non-waiver trade deadline on Wednesday, barring a review of medical records.

Matt Carpenter goes deep again, Cardinals take early lead over Giants

Oct 12 2014 8:44pm CDT | Source: SBNation

After hitting eight homers in 158 regular season games, Carpenter has already smacked four homers in six games this postseason. If postseason runs are often defined by miraculous individual performances, we'll likely be remembering what St. Louis Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter has accomplished this fall. A leadoff hitter known more for hitting to the gaps than over the wall, Carpenter has become one of baseball's most potent sluggers this ...

ST. LOUIS – Madison Bumgarner pitched shutout ball into the eighth inning and the San Francisco Giants combined just enough hitting with a couple of defensive flubs by St. Louis to beat the Cardinals 3-0 Saturday night in the NL Championship Series opener. Bumgarner set a major league post-season record with 26 2-3 consecutive scoreless innings on the road. The Giants lefty was in complete command while 20-g ...

Giants vs. Cardinals, 2014 NLCS Game 1 results: 3 things we learned from the Giants' 3-0 win

Oct 11 2014 10:34pm CDT | Source: SBNation

The Giants ran out to a lead early, and Madison Bumgarner shut down the Cardinals long enough to help give his team the 3-0 Game 1 win. Before the final week of this season, Travis Ishikawa had never played left field at the major league level. That his diving catch and bloop single would both happen in that part of Busch Stadium tell you the type of night the Giants had on their way to a 3-0 Game 1 win. After going just 2-11 in ...
