Peavy is drawing trade interest from the Boston Red Sox, who are "doing background work" on the 32-year-old right-hander, according to ESPN's Buster Olney. The Arizona Diamondbacks, San Francisco Giants and Colorado Rockies are also reportedly involved in discussions with the White Sox regarding Peavy..
The 6'1, 195-pound native of Alabama owned a 4.30 ERA with 66 strikeouts and 15 walks in 67 innings before landing on the disabled list with a fractured rib.
2012 marked a return to form for Peavy, who was a dominant pitcher for the San Diego Padres before winding up with the White Sox in late-2009 and struggling during the two ensuing seasons. Peavy posted a 3.37 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in 32 starts, the most he made since 2007, and earned a spot on the American League All-Star squad.
