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.

Bruce Bochy Needs to Reshuffle Giants' Bullpen After Embarrassing Game 2 Blowup

Oct 22 2014 11:52pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Even after Wednesday night's 7-2 shellacking at the hands of the Kansas City Royals in Game 2 of the World Series, the San Francisco Giants head back to the Bay Area with things knotted at one game apiece. They'll take it. What they can't take is the performance—or lack thereof—they got out of their bullpen, which allowed six runs to score in a fateful, feckless sixth inning. Starter Jake Peavy opened the sixth by giving up a wa ...

Royals rally for Game 2 lead makes Hunter Strickland angry

Oct 22 2014 9:43pm CDT | Source: SBNation

The Royals rally as the Giants get angry. In what was a tense game until the sixth inning, the Royals found their offense, putting up five runs on the back of two singles, a walk, a double, and a home run. That doesn't mean all the tension was gone though, as Hunter Strickland's raw display of emotion set off the Royals a bit. Kansas City drove Jake Peavy from the game with a leadoff single from Lorenzo Cain followed by an E ...

World Series 2014: Billy Butler Will Be Key If Royals Are to Win Game 2

Oct 22 2014 1:44pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Kansas City Royals entered the World Series unblemished with a perfect 8-0 record in the postseason. Now if they hope to avoid falling into a 2-0 series hole, designated hitter Billy Butler will have to step up. For Butler, there’s much at stake. Remember, Butler and Alex Gordon are the two longest-tenured players on the Kansas City roster, both arriving on the scene in 2007. But more significantly, ...

Boston Red Sox’s Young Pitchers: Projecting Players’ Roles For 2015

Oct 20 2014 4:37pm CDT | Source: Yardbarker: MLB

The Boston Red Sox’s starting rotation conundrum is multilayered. While the Red Sox need to acquire pitching help this offseason, the organization still has a surplus of young hurlers who could make an impact at the major league level, creating an interesting situation as general manager Ben Cherington prepares to wheel and deal. The Red Sox’s hope upon trading Jon Lester, John Lackey, Jake Peavy and Felix Doubront before this year’s Major Lea ...

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 mo ...

Oct 12 2014 12:53pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

When it was declared the St. Louis Cardinals and the San Francisco Giants—two highly experienced playoff teams—would meet in the National League Championship Series, we immediately knew to expect the unexpected. The same could be said about the surprising Kansas City Royals taking on the Baltimore Orioles in the American League Championship Series. Well, after a Giants shutout victory in Game 1 of the NLCS and two consecutive road wins for the Royals in the ALCS, the outlook for ...

Bumgarner tames Cardinals as Giants take Game 1

Oct 11 2014 10:48pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

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 w ...

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 the first five games of the Gia ...

The Cardinals aren't interested in making the Giants -- or anyone else -- guess their NLCS rotation. The St. Louis Cardinals named their starting rotation for the National League Championship Series and will go with Adam Wainwright in Game 1, the team announced on Thursday. Wainwright was roughed up in Game 1 of the NLDS, surrendering six runs on 11 hits in 4⅓ innings. The 33-year-old right-hander was let off the hook by his offense, which put up eight runs against Los ...

Revived Hudson ready for first Championship Series

SAN FRANCISCO — Even in his late 30s and a year removed from a devastating ankle injury that cut short his 2013 season in Atlanta, Tim Hudson pictured himself pitching at a high level again. That’s the very reason he took the leap to move back cross country and join the San Francisco Giants, leaving his Georgia roots last fall and returning to his Bay Area baseball beginnings. Now, the veteran right-hander is headed to the NL Championship Series in the deepest playoff run of his 16 ...
