Jake Peavy SP SF 23 Hrs

Peavy took a tough loss Monday, allowing three runs (one earned) on six hits with a walk and five strikeouts over seven innings against the Rockies.

Peavy doesn't have the stuff he once did, as witnessed by his career low 7.04 K/9 this year. Still, the right-hander has pitch well since coming to San Francisco, owning a 2-3 record with 2.94 ERA and 1.19 WHIP over his last five starts. He's scheduled to face the Brewers on Saturday.

Peavy (3-12) picked up his third win of the season Wednesday against the Cubs, allowing two runs while scattering 10 hits and striking out eight in seven innings.

Peavy earned back-to-back wins for the first time this season. The 33-year-old has been pretty sold for the Giants, giving them quality starts in three out of five turns with a 3.63 ERA. Peavy faces the Rockies at home on Monday.

Peavy turned in one of his better outings of the season Wednesday, holding the White Sox to one run over seven innings to pick up his second win of the season.

Peavy's won-loss record still sits at 2-12 due both to his poor performance and a lack of run support, and for a while Wednesday, it looked like he could be headed for his 13th loss. The Giants trailed 1-0 after Peavy finished his final inning, but his mates rallied for seven runs in the bottom of the frame, due in large part to a controversial overturned call at the plate that went in the home team's favor. The win marked Peavy's first since Apr. 25, when he was still a member of the Red Sox.

Peavy dropped to 0-3 with the Giants -- and 1-11 on the year -- on Thursday, allowing three runs on nine hits and three walks against the Brewers.

Peavy wasn't having a very good year with the Red Sox, and moving to the National League hasn't made him any more consistent. He's a very risky roll in any fantasy league at this point. Peavy will try to avoid taking his 12th loss Tuesday at home against the White Sox.

Jake Peavy turned in a quality start in his Giants debut on Sunday but wound up as the losing pitcher after allowing four runs (three earned) on six hits over his six innings of work.

Peavy punched out five on the evening while walking two. His defense, specifically Dan Uggla and Michael Morse, didn't do him any favors in this one. The Dodgers broke things open with a three-run fifth inning, highlighted by an RBI triple by Carl Crawford. Peavy will look to get in the win column when he takes on the Mets in New York on Saturday.

Giants acquired RHP Jake Peavy and cash considerations from the Red Sox for LHP Edwin Escobar and RHP Heath Hembree.

Peavy is scheduled to make his Giants debut on Sunday when he toes the slab against the Dodgers. While he struggled through his first 20 starts on the season (4.72 ERA, 1.43 WHIP), he should certainly benefit from a return to the National League West and is worth a look if available in mixed leagues.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Giants have agreed to a deal to acquire Jake Peavy from the Red Sox.

The Red Sox are rumored to be receiving a pair of minor league pitchers back in the trade. The veteran right-hander is in the midst of a disappointing season, posting a 1-9 record, 4.72 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 100/46 K/BB ratio through his first 20 starts. A return to the National League should be a nice boost to his fantasy value.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Giants are the team in discussions with the Red Sox about acquiring Jake Peavy.

Jen Royle of the Boston Herald reported earlier that a National League club was close to acquiring the Boston right-hander, and the destination now appears to be known. With the continued uncertainty on the health of Matt Cain, Peavy would be a nice addition for rotation depth. His fantasy value would also increase with a return to the National League.

According to Jen Royle of the Boston Herald, an unnamed National League team is close to acquiring Jake Peavy from the Red Sox.

The only known NL squad rumored to have serious interest in Peavy, the Cardinals, are not believed to be the suitor in this potential deal. While nothing appears imminent, it's a situation worth monitoring. Brandon Workman would likely return to the Red Sox rotation in the event Peavy is dealt.

Jake Peavy was hit hard by the Blue Jays on Tuesday, allowing five runs over six innings in a loss, which brought his record to a disappointing 1-9.

Peavy had been throwing the ball better over his last three starts, but the buck stopped with the Blue Jays, who belted two home runs and two doubles, accounting for half of the eight hits surrendered by the right-hander. Peavy also walked three and struck out seven. He now has a 4.72 ERA, a 1.43 WHIP, and a 100/46 K/BB ratio. He'll try to bounce back against the surging Rays on the road on Sunday.
