The Chicago White Sox have acquired right-handed pitcher Jake Peavy, a two-time All-Star and the 2007 National League Cy Young Award winner, from the San Diego Padres in exchange for left-handers Aaron Poreda and Clayton Richard and right-handers Dexter Carter and Adam Russell.

MLBTR:

3:35pm: USA Today’s Bob Nightengale, via Twitter, says the White Sox confirmed they just got Peavy.  Brock agrees – Peavy approved the trade this time.  Peavy is owed $56MM through 2012, or $74MM through 2013 if the Sox exercise his option.

Peavy’s gamelog shows he last pitched on June 8.

Ken Rosenthal:

Peavy, 28, is currently on the disabled list with a strained tendon in his right ankle. The date of his return is uncertain. He is signed for $15 million next season, $16 million in 2011 and $17 million in 2012, with a $22 million club option for 2013.

Peavy’s agent: “I think Jake just got to the breaking point,” Axelrod said. “One team wanted him bad enough, and the other team wanted to get rid of him.”
