Costanza:

The White Sox have traded away many prospects over the last couple of years but to date none of them have come back to bite the Sox. Here I will review all of the prospects traded away by Kenny Williams in 2009 and will try to determine whether this latest crop of former prospects will come back to haunt the White Sox in the future. …

Dubee is putting up some nice numbers after he got traded to Pittsburgh for Andy Phillips.

Rich Lederer:

Peavy is a fantastic pitcher when healthy but, like an overpriced stock, may not be a good value at this point. He is clearly worth more to a team like the White Sox than the Padres.

BTW, THT’s Adam Guttridge doesn’t like it at all.

John Sickels on the Jake Peavy trade

John Sickels:

Jake Peavy from the Padres to the White Sox for Clayton Richard, Aaron Poreda, Adam Russell, and Dexter Carter. One proven excellent (when healthy) starter in exchange for four arms. I like it from San Diego’s perspective, given their current situation. Richard can slot into the rotation immediately, and Poreda has a chance to be a closer if his command holds. Russell is an OK middle relief type, while Carter has a live arm and excellent numbers in low-A ball. If Peavy’s ankle recovers fast enough he will help the White Sox down the stretch, but I think they gave up quite a bit to get him.

THT on the Peavy trade

Aaron Peroda?

Signed for 3 more years at 52 million dollars, the White Sox now will be paying him as roughly a 4 WAR player when you assume a slight decline phase and factor in a discount for a long term deal. So does Peavy figure to be worth that much? Well, ZIPS thinks him currently capable of a 3.24 FIP. If you raise that .5 points for moving out of PETCO and moving to the tougher league, than he projects to be about a 4.5 WAR player over a full season. Considering that the White Sox are right in the mix of the playoff race this year, and there are no teams who figure to run away with the division next year, this certainly seems like a good return for the White Sox.

whitesox.com:

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.”

SoxMachine’s Birmingham & Charlotte Minor League roundup

Dayan Viciedo is improving:

Viciedo’s numbers still aren’t impressive on the whole, but he’s making every necessary improvement right now.  Last month, it was all about the quality of his contact.  This time around, it’s his walks and strikeouts.  Check it out:

* April: 2 BB, 19 K
* May: 3 BB, 23 K
* June: 9 BB, 11 K

He also topped .400 in slugging for the first time in a month (.426), along with his career high in OBP (.342).  He’s still committing plenty of errors, but the Sox paid him to hit, and he’s following the correct curve right now.

BTW,  Jhonny Nunez was promoted to Charlotte.
