Red Sox looking to trade for White Sox starter Jake Peavy
The Red Sox are eyeing White Sox starter Jake Peavy ahead of the MLB trade deadline, which is July 31, according to multiple reports.
Peavy is 7-4 on the season, has a 4.19 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP. Chicago, owning a 38-56 record, is underachieving in the AL Central and is expected to be sellers in the days leading up to the deadline.
Peavy was the ace of the San Diego Padres before a deadline trade sent him to Chicago in 2009. With San Diego Peavy recorded six double-digit win seasons, including a 19-win campaign in 2007. The righty went 11-12 with the White Sox last season with a 3.37 ERA.
