Rumors about a Peavy trade had been swirling in advance of the July 31 deadline. The Red Sox are 47-53 and in last place in the AL East, plus Peavy will be a free agent this offseason, meaning the team could be looking to unload him for prospects.
Peavy is 1-9 with a 4.72 ERA in 20 starts this season. He won the 2007 NL Cy Young and has made three All-Star teams.
