White Sox acquire Jake Peavy from Padres

In the craziest, most unexpected deal of the day, the Chicago White Sox have acquired right-hander Jake Peavy from the San Diego Padres for a package of prospects, CBSSports.com has confirmed.

Yes, the same White Sox who were turned down by Peavy when a deal was first put into place back in May.

Peavy currently is on the disabled list recovering from a torn tendon in his right foot and has not pitched in six weeks. He is on target to begin throwing again in August. Assuming he comes back healthy, Peavy could become a huge difference-maker for the White Sox down the stretch as they battle the Detroit Tigers and Minnesota Twins in the AL Central.

The move also gives the Sox a solid answer to Detroit's acquisition of Jarrod Washburn earlier in the day.

For Peavy, the Sox sent four young pitchers to the Padres: Left-handers Clayton Richard and Aaron Poreda and right-handers Adam Russell and Dexter Carter.

Richard was supposed to pitch for the Sox tonight against the New York Yankees.

This time next year the White Sox will be looking to dump Peavey, Contreras, Colon - maybe others - as they try to rebuild an offense that has them sitting near the bottom of the division.  Peavey is nothing more than future trading fodder, which is fine, but I doubt they get back what they gave up for him.

I think the White Sox will be too far back to make a charge when (and if) Jake Peavy is available. I was never big on Aaron Poreda and Clayton Richard, at least for this season. Peavy is expected in about 25-30 games from now, for the final 40 games? What if Chicago is more than five games back by then ... they are going to make a move with Carrasco and Contreras?

It is a great trade for the White Sox if Peavy ends up long term in Chicago, but I do not see it helping in 2009. I expect the Pale Hose to be close to eliminated by the time Peavy hits his stride.

GFY - Good point on the Sox maybe picking up his option in 2013, that could have easily swayed him to waive the no-trade.

JC12, get with the program r-tard. If you don't bother reading the posts, why bother writing one. Peavy is signed through '12. Maybe the Sox decided to agree to pick up the option in '13 for him to waive his no-trade cluase. You are a friggin moron.

Seems like a lot to give up for ten starts (if you're lucky).
