Sox Trade Peavy To Giants For Two Prospects

You knew it was coming. The Red Sox traded hard-luck starter Jake Peavy to the San Francisco Giants for two minor league pitching prospects, Edwin Escobar and Heath Hembree. Peavy got virtually no run support this year, and hadn't won a game since April 25th (1-9, 4.72). Hembree was once considered the Giants' closer in waiting. Both players were at AAA.
