Jake Peavy rumors: Red Sox doing background work

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

The Red Sox are doing background work on Chicago White Sox starter Jake Peavy according to a report from Buster Olney of ESPN.com. This follows a report from Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe who said Sunday that the team would be closely watching the big righty

The 32-year old right hander will likely be one of the more highly sought after pitchers on the trade market. His contract with Chicago pays him $14.5 million this season and in 2014. He also has a player option that would pay him $15 million in 2015.

Peavy was just activated off the DL on Friday and has a 6-4 record with a 4.30 ERA, 66 strikeouts and a 1.16 WHIP in 11 starts in 2013. He won the NL Cy Young award for the San Diego Padres in 2007, when he went 19-6 with a 2.54 ERA in 34 starts.

The Red Sox previously expressed interest in Peavy in 2009, before he was traded to the White Sox in a deal at the deadline.
