Jake Peavy traded to Boston Red Sox


The non-waiver trade deadline arrives Wednesday afternoon, but a bunch of American League teams couldn’t wait, making moves late Tuesday night. Certainly new Boston Red Sox right-hander Jake Peavy is the big name here, as he left the Chicago White Sox in a three-team, seven-player deal. Peavy isn’t 100 percent owned in ESPN standard leagues, but he’s close. Remember, he’s made only 13 starts this season; two since coming off the disabled list two weeks ago for a rib injury. Peavy’s value doesn’t really change while he’s changing his socks, or in this case, Sox. In last week’s pitcher rankings Peavy was No. 34 among starting pitchers, which seems reasonable. If he stays healthy he could crack the top 25.
