ImpactPeavy went 0-12 with a 5.25 ERA in his previous 18 starts, including 0-3 with a 4.82 ERA in his first three starts with San Francisco. He held the White Sox to four hits and one run in seven innings Wednesday. Despite his track record, he isn't a fantasy option.

NewsRed Sox RHP Jake Peavy has reportedly been traded to San Francisco.
ImpactPeavy is just 1-9 this season with a 4.72 ERA and 1.427 WHIP. Perhaps the Giants hope his return to the NL will spark a revival. He has a career record of 14-2 with a 2.21 ERA and 0.962 WHIP versus the division rival Dodgers.
Angels could have interest in Jake Peavy | 07/09/2014 2:10 PM
NewsJen Royle of the Boston Herald reports that the Angels are a "potential suitor" for Jake Peavy.
Jen Royle on Twitter
ImpactRoyle says that the Halos could be searching for a starter due to Jered Weaver's back issue. It doesn't seem like Weaver will be out long, but the Angels nevertheless would make some sense as a landing spot for the veteran right-hander. Peavy is also reportedly drawing interest from the Cardinals and Braves.
Cardinals 'looking for offense,' not Peavy | 07/08/2014 7:50 PM
NewsDerrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch was told by a Cardinals source that the team is "looking for offense" rather than a pitcher like Jake Peavy.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
ImpactMultiple reports have suggested that the Cardinals are in on Peavy and that a deal could be done quickly, but Goold is hearing otherwise. Goold notes that the Cards have "had an eye on the available pitchers," but "their offensive need is more acute." St. Louis is expecting Joe Kelly (hamstring) to return from the DL Friday and thinks their rotation will be fine, especially if they get Michael Wacha (shoulder) back next month.
Cards' deal for Peavy could happen quickly | 07/08/2014 1:57 PM
NewsJayson Stark of ESPN.com hears that a deal sending Jake Peavy to the Cardinals could happen "quick."
Jasyon Stark on Twitter
ImpactThe scenario is picking up steam in a hurry, as Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com reported late Monday that the Cardinals scouted Peavy's most recent start and Peter Gammons hears that St. Louis wants him for their rotation. The veteran right-hander hasn't pitched particularly well this season, but he could benefit with a return to the National League. The Cardinals could also use the depth given the injuries to Michael Wacha and Jaime Garcia.
Report: Cardinals want RHP Jake Peavy | 07/08/2014 1:05 PM
NewsPeter Gammons hears that the Cardinals "want" Red Sox right-hander Jake Peavy.
Peter Gammons on Twitter
ImpactThis comes on the heels of a report from Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com, who wrote that the Cardinals were scouting Peavy on Sunday. It's not surprising to hear St. Louis come up as a potential destination, as they were interested in the veteran right-hander before the White Sox traded him to the Red Sox last season. Peavy owns a 4.64 ERA this season and is owed about $7 million the rest of the way, so the Cardinals might not have to give up a top prospect to get him.
Cardinals scouting righty Jake Peavy | 07/07/2014 8:06 PM
NewsGordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com reports that the Cardinals were scouting Jake Peavy on Sunday.
Gordon Edes on Twitter
ImpactThey saw him throw a second straight quality start, as Peavy held the Orioles to two runs -- one earned -- over six innings. As Edes notes, the Cards had interest in Peavy at the trade deadline last year before he ended up in Boston. The veteran righty hasn't pitched well this season (4.64 ERA) and is making $14.5 million, so it's doubtful it would take a whole lot to pry him loose.
Peavy allows two runs in no-decision vs. O's | 07/06/2014 8:59 PM
NewsJake Peavy allowed two runs -- one earned -- over six innings in a no-decision against the Orioles on Sunday.
ImpactPeavy allowed six hits and two walks, striking out three on the day. He remains 1-7 with the no-decision, but he lowered his ERA to 4.64 with the good outing. He'll go for his second win of the season at the Astros on Friday.
Jake Peavy strikes out seven in loss | 06/30/2014 10:33 PM
NewsJake Peavy dropped to 1-7 after allowing two runs in six innings Monday against the Cubs.
ImpactIt was another loss for Peavy, but still his best result in a couple of weeks. He struck out seven, and one of the two extra-base hits he allowed probably would have been caught had Jackie Bradley Jr. started in center field rather than Mookie Betts. The solid outing should keep him in the rotation to face the Orioles this weekend.
SP Peavy coughs up 7 ER in loss to Mariners | 06/25/2014 1:39 AM
NewsJake Peavy was torched for seven runs in five innings to take a loss to the Mariners on Tuesday.
ImpactPeavy allowed eight hits, and we aren't talking soft contact; he was blitzed for four extra-base hits, including two homers, in spacious Safeco Field. Kyle Seager's three-run dinger in the fifth inning was the real back-breaker, putting the Mariners up 6-2, but Mike Zunino followed with a solo job just in case. Peavy has a nice matchup on deck with the Cubs coming to town next week, but, at 1-6 with a 4.93 ERA, you'd have more guts than us if you trotted him out in a mixed league lineup.
SP Peavy coughs up 3 ER in loss to Athletics | 06/20/2014 1:09 AM
NewsJake Peavy allowed four runs -- three earned -- on five hits over 6 1/3 innings in a loss against the A'S on Thursday.
ImpactPeavy didn't surrender a geyser of runs, but he coughed up a drip of one run apiece in the second, third and fourth innings. By the time his offense chipped in with two runs in the sixth, the game had gotten away from Boston. The veteran struck out four and walked three. Now a disappointing 1-5 with a 4.52 ERA and 1.43 WHIP, Peavy travels to Seattle on Tuesday.
Peavy goes six strong but Red Sox lose | 06/14/2014 7:43 PM
NewsJake Peavy tossed six innings of one-run ball in a no-decision Saturday versus the Indians.
ImpactIt was his best start in a while, but Peavy got only two runs of support from Boston's offense and the Indians rallied in the seventh inning to steal the victory. Peavy struck out five and walked two. He will carry a 4.53 ERA and 1.44 WHIP into his next scheduled start on the road against the A's.
Jake Peavy gives up four runs in loss | 06/09/2014 11:53 PM
NewsJake Peavy surrendered four runs in seven innings to take a loss to the Orioles on Monday.
ImpactPeavy wasn't all that bad tonight and he's had just one really terrible outing this year (6 ER in 4 1/3 IP against Minnesota on May 13), but his ERA has been steadily rising. He's had just one quality start in his last six turns, and that was also the only one of his starts in which the Red Sox got a win. If this were the Red Sox offense of 2013, Peavy's mediocrity could be more easily absorbed. As is, he's been quite a liability of late. He shouldn't be active in mixed leagues right now.
Peavy falls to 1-3 with rough outing vs. CLE | 06/03/2014 10:55 PM
NewsJake Peavy fell to 1-3, allowing five runs over 6 1/3 innings as the Red Sox lost to the Indians 5-3 on Tuesday.
ImpactThe 33-year-old veteran's struggles continue, as he has now allowed five-plus runs in four out of his last five outings. On Tuesday, he allowed eight hits, walked one, and struck out only three. Peavy owns a 4.72 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP, both of which he will try to lower in his next start against the Orioles on the road.
Peavy gets no-decision with 8 solid innings | 05/29/2014 10:32 PM
NewsJake Peavy got the no-decision, allowing three runs over eight innings in Thursday's win over the Braves.
ImpactPeavy scattered the three runs, allowing eight hits and walking one while striking out four. The right-hander had compiled three consecutive mediocre outings before bouncing back against the Braves on Thursday. He'll take his 4.50 ERA over ten starts in search of his second win in his next start against the Indians on the road.
Peavy coughs up lead, Sox lose ninth straight | 05/24/2014 9:35 PM
NewsJake Peavy surrendered five earned runs in six innings Saturday as the Red Sox fell to the Rays.
ImpactPeavy was staked to a 5-0 lead after the top of the first inning but couldn't keep the Red Sox ahead, yielding one run in the second, one run in the fourth, and then three runs in the bottom of the fifth. The Rays wound up winning in the 15th, sending the Sox to their ninth straight defeat. Boston is in last place in the American League East standings with a 20-28 record. Peavy has a rough 4.65 ERA and 1.50 WHIP.
Peavy gives up five runs in loss to Tigers | 05/18/2014 11:30 PM
NewsJake Peavy struggled in Sunday's loss to the Tigers, surrendering five runs on 11 hits over his six innings.
ImpactPeavy struck out two without walking a batter on the evening. The Tigers jumped on him in the third inning with an RBI single by Miguel Cabrera and a two-run homer from Victor Martinez. Peavy has not been very effective in the early part of the season, compiling a 4.33 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 43/27 K/BB ratio through 54 innings. He'll try to turn things around when he does battle against the Rays in Tampa Bay on Saturday.
Peavy allows nine hits and six runs vs. Twins | 05/14/2014 12:42 AM
NewsJake Peavy allowed six runs on nine hits over 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Twins on Tuesday.
ImpactThe upshot is that Peavy only walked two on the night, which had been an issue for the American League leader in free passes. Unfortunately for Peavy, that's about the only positive to be taken from the night. He allowed a home run for his eighth straight start, and it was the first time this season he's lasted fewer than five innings. Peavy owns a 3.94 ERA and 1.46 WHIP into his next start against the Tigers on Saturday.

ImpactFelix Doubront was originally scheduled to make the start, but he has been pushed back to Wednesday. Peavy owns a 3.09 ERA through seven starts this season, but he has walked 25 batters in just 42 2/3 innings. His last start was last Wednesday, so apparently the Red Sox don't want him to go a week between outings. This will also line him up to face the Tigers this weekend.
Jake Peavy gives up three runs to Reds | 05/07/2014 11:12 PM
NewsJake Peavy allowed three runs in six-plus innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Reds.
ImpactIt could have been worse: Peavy left with the bases loaded and no outs in the seventh, but Chris Capuano and Burke Badenhop combined to allow just one of the runners to score in finishing the inning. Peavy walked four once again. That makes five times this season. He's walked 25 batters in 43 2/3 innings overall, a huge step up from last year's 36 walks in 144 2/3 innings of from his 49 walks in 219 innings in 2012. He's pitched pretty well anyway, but he's walking a thin line.
Jake Peavy gives up two runs in loss | 05/01/2014 4:57 PM
NewsJake Peavy yielded two runs and three hits in 6 1/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the Rays.
ImpactPeavy lost the game in the fourth, when he pitched around James Loney with two outs and a man on third. It turned out to be the first of three straight walks, scoring the go-ahead run for the Rays. Apart from that frame, Peavy was quite strong again. He's allowed two runs or fewer in five of his six starts.
Peavy impressive in victory over Blue Jays | 04/25/2014 10:08 PM
NewsJake Peavy turned in an impressive outing in Friday's victory over the Blue Jays, allowing just one run on five hits over seven strong innings.
ImpactPeavy racked up seven strikeouts on the evening while walking two. The only damage against him came on a solo blast by Juan Francisco in the seventh. He now sits at 1-0 on the season with a 2.87 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 32/16 K/BB ratio through his first 31 1/3 frames. He'll look to extend his winning streak when he does battle against the Rays on Thursday.

NewsJake Peavy struggled in a no-decision against the Orioles on Sunday, surrendering five runs on 10 hits over his 5 2/3 innings of work.
ImpactPeavy walked five and struck out four on the evening. The O's jumped on him early in this one, striking for three runs in the first inning including a solo homer off the bat of Nelson Cruz. The veteran right-hander will carry a 3.33 ERA, troublesome 1.48 WHIP and 25/14 K/BB ratio into his next outing against the Blue Jays in Toronto on Friday.
Peavy pitches well, but gets no-decision | 04/15/2014 11:56 PM
NewsJake Peavy pitched well in Tuesday's start against the White Sox, allowing one run over six innings, but took home the no-decision.
ImpactPeavy allowed three hits, walked four, and struck out eight, lowering his ERA to 1.93. The veteran has been uncharacteristically spotty with his command, walking 10 in 18 2/3 innings to begin the season, but still has the swing-and-miss stuff to wiggle out of jams. Peavy will face the Orioles his next time out.
Jake Peavy strikes out eight Rangers | 04/09/2014 7:44 PM
NewsJake Peavy pitched 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball and struck out eight against the Rangers on Wednesday.
ImpactPeavy gave up a game-tying homer to Mitch Moreland in the seventh to lose his bid for a win. He's impressed in both of his starts to date, amassing a 2.18 ERA, but he doesn't have a victory to show for it. The eight strikeouts tonight matched his high as a member of the Red Sox.

ImpactPeavy missed time with a laceration on his left index finger, but he still has time to get ready for the first week of the season. He was throwing in the low-90s today, so arm strength doesn't look like a concern.

ImpactPeavy had a good outing against the Rays in the Division Series but couldn't replicate that success in his next start. Things unraveled quickly for the right-hander in the second inning, as nine men came to the plate in the Tigers' five-run outburst. Peavy allowed two more baserunners in the fourth without recording an out before exiting, and both came around to score as well. The start will likely be his only one in the ALCS.

NewsJake Peavy lasted just 5 2/3 innings but held the Rays in check Tuesday, yielding just one run on five hits in the 3-1 victory.
ImpactPeavy cruised through five scoreless frames but ran into some trouble in the sixth, giving up a double and then an RBI single. He retired the next batter, but Red Sox manager John Farrell decided it was time to go to the bullpen at that time. It wound up looking smart after the club's relievers put up 3 1/3 scoreless innings while allowing just one baserunner. The Red Sox will begin the ALCS against either the Tigers or A's on Saturday, with Jon Lester getting the ball.

Jake Peavy allows four runs to Yankees | 09/06/2013 12:19 AM
NewsJake Peavy surrendered four runs in six-plus innings Thursday against the Yankees.
ImpactIt was two runs through six innings, but manager John Farrell sent him back out for the seventh after 105 pitches. That quickly proved to be a mistake, as the first two batters reached against him. What had been a 7-2 lead turned into an 8-7 deficit by inning's end, and Peavy's streak of four straight quality starts was ruined.

NewsJake Peavy gave up just one run in a complete game effort against the Dodgers on Sunday night.
ImpactHe allowed three hits, one walk, and finished with five strikeouts. Peavy continues to pitch effectively since coming over at the trade deadline and has given up two or fewer runs in four of his last five outings. His lone mistake came on a home run to Adrian Gonzalez in the fourth inning. Peavy's next start is scheduled for Saturday against the White Sox.
Peavy gives up 1 run over 5 2/3 frames | 08/21/2013 1:23 AM
NewsJake Peavy lasted just 5 2/3 innings on Tuesday, but he gave up only one run on five hits against the Giants.
ImpactPeavy struck out four and walked one in the no-decision. He didn't allow a homer for the second consecutive start, nice to see after the veteran gave up at least one round-tripper in all seven starts between May 25-August 9. Peavy remains 9-5 to go with a 4.25 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 103 2/3 innings for both the White and Red Sox this year.
Jake Peavy takes loss in 2-1 game | 08/15/2013 10:06 PM
NewsJake Peavy was charged with two earned runs over six-plus innings Wednesday in a loss to the Blue Jays.
ImpactThe runs were originally unearned, but then a Will Middlebrooks error to start the seventh was changed to a hit for Jose Bautista. That was a hometown call -- it was an error all of the way -- and Peavy should have finished his night with at least 6 1/3 scoreless innings. The loss, on the other hand, was inevitable, as the Red Sox scored just once all night.
Peavy hammered in no-decision vs. Royals | 08/10/2013 12:01 AM
NewsJake Peavy was hammered in Friday's no-decision against the Royals, allowing six runs on 10 hits over five-plus innings of work.
ImpactPeavy walked one in the ballgame and failed to record a strikeout. Alex Gordon and Justin Maxwell each tagged him for solo homers in the early innings. Peavy now sports a 4.50 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 83/20 K/BB ratio through 92 innings. He'll attempt to get back on track when he takes on the Blue Jays in Toronto on Thursday.

Tim Britton on Twitter
ImpactPeavy was acquired from the White Sox earlier this week in a three-team deal with the Tigers. He'll carry a 4.28 ERA and 76/17 K/BB ratio over 80 innings into the start. Trading U.S. Cellular Field for the hitter-friendly ballparks of the AL East are somewhat of a wash, but he should get a slight boost in fantasy value with a better offense behind him.
Red Sox land Jake Peavy in three-team deal | 07/31/2013 12:47 AM
NewsRed Sox acquired RHP Jake Peavy from the White Sox and RHP Brayan Villarreal from the Tigers in a three-team deal; White Sox acquired OF Avisail Garcia from the Tigers and RHP Francellis Montas, RHP Jeffrey Wendelken and shortstop Cleuluis Rondon from the Red Sox; Tigers acquired SS Jose Iglesias from the Red Sox.
ImpactOne can argue about how much good Peavy will really do the Red Sox, but the price is right. Iglesias was never going to keep hitting like this, and while he should make it as a long-term shortstop, he's not likely to be an above average regular. Peavy, who is making $14.5 million this year and next, was 8-4 with a 4.28 ERA and a 76/17 K/BB ratio in 80 IP for the White Sox. He missed time earlier in the year with a broken rib. His biggest problem has been the home run ball -- he's allowed 14 -- but switching from U.S. Cellular to Fenway will help there, so his fantasy value should get a slight boost.

Just when Clay Buchholz (neck, back) will return is an open question, so it's only natural that the Red Sox are considering Peavy as an option. With Matt Garza off the board, the veteran right-hander might be the best starting pitcher available leading up to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline. The 32-year-old is under contract of $14.5 million next season while his contract includes a conditional $15 million player option for 2015.

ImpactMany have speculated on the Red Sox as a possible landing spot, as the club is trying to get Clay Buchholz (neck, shoulder) back to full health. It's a bit of a surprise to see the Cardinals mentioned given their depth, but they apparently want to add a veteran arm to the mix rather than rely on youth.
