Jake Peavy could get three-year contract extension from Giants

Sunday October 12th, 2014

The San Francisco Giants are interested in re-signing pitcher Jake Peavy and could offer him a three-year contract extension, according to Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe on Sunday.

Peavy was reunited with manager Bruce Bochy, who was with the former Cy Young winner when he won the award with the Padres in 2007, over the summer when he was traded from the Red Sox for the rights to pitching prospects Edwin Escobar and Heath Hembree. Since the trade, Peavy has posted a 2.17 ERA in 78.2 innings.

The 33-year-old limited the Nationals to two hits in 5.2 scoreless innings during San Francisco's Game 1 win in the NLDS vs. the Nationals earlier this month. 

The Giants currently lead the Cardinals 1-0 in the NLCS. Peavy will get the start in Game 2 Sunday night.
