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.

The Boston Red Sox acquired pitcher Jake Peavy in a three-team trade with the Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers

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.

Red Sox sign Cuban free agent Rusney Castillo to record contract

Aug 22 2014 11:45am CDT | Source: SBNation

Castillo's $72.5 million is the most for any Cuban free agent. The reports were that the Red Sox would not be denied Cuban free agent Rusney Castillo, and they turned out to be true, with Boston inking the 27-year-old to a seven-year, $72.5 million deal, the largest ever for a Cuban free agent. It's not actually a seven-year deal, however, as it begins in 2014, but there's an important reason behind going se ...
