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.

sounds like a cubs idiot.  Peavy is hurt but is due back in August, and will still be in a postion to make 4-6 starts down the stretch + the playoffs. The Sox only gave up one good prospect Poreda, Richard is ok, Russel is just fodder.  Hope you're happy with your two lefties - Cubs are only capable of making deals with the Pirates.

Look...getting Peavy is NOT a trade for this season.  The White Sox have no chance for this year.  It is a trade for the next few years where the White Sox will have a solid starting pitching staff for some time to come.  The Sox gave little up for a great pitcher which will be on their team for a 3+years.

Do you think they will call up AAA Superstar, Carlos Torres to fill 5th spot for now?

Peavy is not Halladay. The point is Peavy has beeter lifetime stats than Halladay becasue of where he pitched. Peavy will be lucky to keep his era below 4 in Chicago. This ain't Petco park and that ain't an NL West team your facing anymore.

Peavy is just another NL West pitcher that will get beaten like a baby seal when he gets to the American League. He is moving from the worst division in baseball in one of the top pitcher's parks in baseball to the American League to a hitter's park. The only way this would be wrose for Peavy is if he had been traded to the Yankees where the AL East would bury him.

Anytime you can make a trade for a pitcher on the disabled list, you HAVE to make that trade.
