Peavy was dazzling again Tuesday night, allowing just one run on five hits, walking one, and striking out four over 7.2 innings of a 2-1 win against the Diamondbacks in Arizona.

After a disastrous start to the season where he went 1-9 with the Red Sox, Peavy (7-13, 3.82 ERA) has turned it around in a big way in San Francisco. He hasn't allowed more than two runs in any of his last seven starts - six of which resulted in wins - and he will look to keep it going when he faces the Dodgers in Chavez Ravine next time out in what figures to be a game with serious playoff implications.

Peavy tossed 5.2 strong innings Thursday against the D-Backs, improving to 5-4 as a Giant by allowing just one run on six hits with eight strikeouts.

After going 1-9 with Boston and then struggling over his first few starts with the Giants, Peavy's turned over a new leaf -- or perhaps an old one. He finished one out short of recording his sixth consecutive quality start and has allowed just five earned runs in his last six outings dating back to Aug. 13. He'll draw another date against Arizona on Tuesday, this time in the desert.

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.
