Peavy To ChiSox?

The San Diego Padres and Chicago White Sox have agreed to a deal in which Jake Peavy will be sent to the White Sox. However, Peavy has a no trade clause and the deal is up to him.

During the offseason, there were rumors Peavy would be in Chicago for the 2009 season, but with the Cubs. The deal didn't fall, and now he has to chose to wave or not to wave.

The players believed to be sent to San Diego are pitchers Clayton Richard and Aaron Poreda and two other players.

Mat Latos and Will Inman, two prized prospects, were promoted by the Padres which indicated a potential move of Peavy.

Peavy is 3-5 with a 3.89 ERA and this season. In his career, the 2007 Cy Young winner is 89-67 with a 3.27 ERA and 1325 strikeouts and 1.18 WHIP.

A move the Padres did make was trading Jody Gerut to the Brewers in exchange for Tony Gwynn Jr.

UPDATE (8:13 PM): Peavy turns down deal to White Sox.

Looks like he might end up in Philly now... I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
