Jake Peavy to the Chicago White Sox …

We’ll have more later at Padres.com about the trade that just went
down. Here’s a quick look at the deal. Poreda is the prize here and
Richard is also very good and likely will join the team first.

Remember to check Twitter @FollowThePadres and Padres.com for more details.

SAN
DIEGO – The Padres and White Sox agreed to a trade on Friday that will
send 2007 National League Cy Young Award winner Jake Peavy to Chicago
for a package of four pitchers.

Two months after the two teams
agreed to what is believed to be a similar trade, only to have Peavy
use his no-trade clause to torpedo the deal – Peavy agreed to this
particular trade.

Peavy, who is currently on the disabled list
with a strained tendon in his right ankle, will likely be able to pitch
again in late August.

Peavy, 28, is 6-6 with a 3.97 ERA this
season for the Padres and owns a career mark of 92-68 with a 3.29 ERA
in eight-plus seasons with San Diego.

Richard, 25, is 4-3 with a 4.65 ERA in 26 games (14 starts) with the White Sox in 2009.

Poreda, 22, is 3-4 with a 2.72 ERA between Class AAA and Charlotte Class AA Birmingham.

His
contract was purchased from Birmingham on June 9, and he went 1-0 with
a 2.45 ERA in 10 relief appearances with the White Sox before being
optioned to Charlotte on July 21.

Carter, 23, is 6-2 with a 3.13 ERA and 143 strikeouts in 19 starts with Class A Kannapolis in 2009.

Russell,
26, is 2-2 with a 3.20 ERA and five saves in 34 relief appearances this
season with Charlotte.  He went 4-0 with a 5.19 ERA in 22 relief
appearances with the White Sox in 2008.

Cheers, Corey
