Trade Rumors Swirling Around Jake Peavy

Boston Red Sox's Jake Peavy

To any true baseball fan that knows July is the crunch time for teams making trades, and this year is no different. We have already seen big moves already in players like Jeff Samardzija leaving the Chicago Cubs for Oakland. One name that is come up again this year within the Red Sox organization is that of Jake Peavy.

Peavy has had a rough year so far with a current record of 1-8 and a 4.59 ERA. There have been several rumors surfacing that Peavy is currently being pursued by the St. Louis Cardinals. Peavy played an instrumental role during last season’s World Series run and could be a major part of any team which chooses to pursue him. Despite his numbers, Peavy provides a veteran’s experience to any clubhouse. The Red Sox would likely have to pay the remainder of Peavy’s contract, but should pursue younger players to help boost their roster.

Peavy has expressed his interest in staying in Boston, but in the business of Major League Baseball, anything can happen. Only time will tell what the Red Sox front office decides to do, and July 31 can’t come soon enough. If the Red Sox can free up roster space, maybe this opens the door for a younger pitcher like David Price or another veteran like Cole Hamels or Cliff Lee.

Jon Lester is also rumored to be tradeable, but with the ongoing contract extension talks between Lester and the Red Sox, this seems unlikely.

Title: Red Sox/Patriots/Bruins contributor Contact: [email protected] I don't know about our readers, but I am and have always been a die hard New England Sports fan. I have lived out of the greater New England area since 2008, so being able to follow Boston sports teams has given me the opportunity to experience a piece of home without actually being there. I completed my undergraduate studies at Hesser College in 2007 prior to moving to the Washington DC area in 2008. I later completed a Master's degree in criminal justice from American Military University, in which field I am currently employed. Despite living in this area for almost 6 years, I can't see myself as a local sports fan. As nice as the Nationals Park is, my heart will always be found at Yawkey way. I am brand new to Sportsofboston.com, and I am looking forward to being an integral part of their mission while being able to cover my favorite sports teams on a regular basis. I look forward to fielding your questions or comments regarding my articles.
