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.

As long as you think so. The Tigers and Twins will be in the rearview mirror very shortly.

All About the $, as he stated above, Richard was part of the original deal. It was originally for Poreda, Richard and 2 other pitching prospects. now we know who they were. The fact they got Peavy without giving up Daniel Hudson makes this even better.

Leave it to White Sox GM Kenny Williams to sit quietly during the weeks leading up to the trade deadline, only to make a major splash in the final seconds. Poreda was in the original deal that Peavy vetoed back in May, but Richard was not. So it seems the San Diego ace only sweetened the Padres' haul by rejecting the initial proposal. Peavy signed off on the deal this time.

Wait just a second. The Padres approved the deal three months ago. Peavy declined it. Now, Kenny Williams adds Clayton Richard to the package while Peavy is hurt?

Responding to ddub06.

I as a Sox fan never called him overrated...I called him a big pu$$y for not wanting to pitch in the AL.  But, I will take this big pu$$y over Richard (2 good starts so far and 2 years younger) and Poreda (didn't fit in the rotation, 2 pitches) anyday.  I like the risky move that Kenny pulled off.

Peavy is 28 and signed until 2012 with a team option in 2013.  If the Sox make the playoff this year, it would be great.  I am looking at it long term.

For the next couple of years???

Richard also had problems getting past 6 in the five outings before the recent good run.  The Sox already had 6 starting pitchers---without Richard, they're down to five, and have Freddy coming off the DL in August.  So really just one emergency start- Carrasco is capable of handling that
