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.

Padres made out like bandits in this deal.  Promising specs for a pitcher on the DL.  Well the Sox needed to make a move, but by the time Peavy comes back from the DL, the Sox will be out of it.

Go Cubs Go!

Good luck with the Tigers and Twins. The White Sox are DEFINATELY NOT the team to beat in the Central. Unfortunately it is the Tigers.

Odd acquistion... Peavy hopefully pitches this season but now decides he accepts a trade to the White Sox.  Ummmm... OK!  A very odd trade if you ask me.  The White Sox better hope he comes back this season or this makes them look really bad!  It will be interesting to see if Peavy has the same success in the AL Central that he experienced in the NL West... at least he gets regular meetings against the Cleveland Indians and the minor league squad they field these days.
