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.

John Lackey Trade Rumors: Latest Buzz, Speculation Surrounding Red Sox Star

Jul 28 2014 4:57pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

With a minuscule 2.9 percent chance of making the playoffs, per FanGraphs, the Boston Red Sox are in an unfamiliar position as sellers this summer.      They've already shipped Jake Peavy to San Francisco, and the rest of the rotation seems just as expendable. Jon Lester's name began floating around in Matt Kemp talks, per Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com, and now John Lackey is also receiving a lot of interest.      F ...

As the July 31 MLB trade deadline approaches, teams have begun to make clearer decisions between acting as buyers or sellers. With several organizations taking a 2015-first approach in recent days, the available talent on the market has begun to swell. There has been a more proactive approach this year, with several teams striking early and consequently forcing the hands of their competitors. So after years of deadline duds, the sellers' market that has emerged could result in some hi ...

Trade Deadline Report: Boston Red Sox

Jul 28 2014 8:45am CDT | Source: Yardbarker: MLB

The Boston Red Sox appeared to be on their way to a turnaround after they rattled off 8 of 9 wins including a 14-1 drubbing of the Toronto Blue Jays. They have since followed that up with four straight losses and have once again drifted back into obscurity in the AL East. As the deadline approaches, the Red Sox appear to be headed in a seller status and the moves have already begun. Here is a rundown of what has happened already: Designating AJ Pierzynski for assignment: T ...

A Road Design Worn at Home

Jul 28 2014 6:35am CDT | Source: uni watch

For all of today’s photos, you can click to enlarge The Cubs held their latest throwback game yesterday. The year on tap this time around was 1978 and, as you can see above, the team wore their infamous pinstriped powder blues. (In case you missed it, Phil had an excellent primer on this design in yesterday’s entry.) I’m a little conflicted about the Cubs’ inclusion of this uniform in this season’s throwback program. On the one hand, it’s precisely the ...

AL East Notes: Red Sox, Orioles, Blue Jays

The trade of Jake Peavy might just be the tip of the iceberg for the Red Sox. Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal lists ten more Boston players who could potentially be traded at this week’s deadline. Among them are four relievers (Burke Badenhop, Craig Breslow, Andrew Miller and Koji Uehara), plus starter/reliever Felix Doubront. MacPherson notes that Doubront, like 1B/OF Mike Carp (who recently asked for a trade), can’t wait to get out of Boston. Jason Mastrod ...

Red Sox reportedly pursuing Matt Kemp

Jul 27 2014 3:54pm CDT | Source: Yardbarker: MLB

After a move that sent Jake Peavy to the San Francisco Giants on Saturday afternoon, the Boston Red Sox are continuing to listen to more offers as the trade deadline approaches. The Sox acquired right handed pitcher Heath Hembree and lefty Edwin Escobar from the Giants. Hembree was the No.7 ranked prospect in the Giants’ minor league system while Escobar was their No. 2 prospect.
