Phillies right-handed pitching prospect Aaron Nola struck out four batters over five innings, scattering five hits and a walk while allowing one run for High-A Clearwater on Friday.

Nola did well against a lineup that included prospects Colin Moran and Avery Romero, and is now holding batters to a .229/.260/.427 line. The Phillies are fast-tracking Nola, and he should make his major league debut in mid-to-late 2015.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Giants have agreed to a deal to acquire Jake Peavy from the Red Sox.

The Red Sox are rumored to be receiving a pair of minor league pitchers back in the trade. The veteran right-hander is in the midst of a disappointing season, posting a 1-9 record, 4.72 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 100/46 K/BB ratio through his first 20 starts. A return to the National League should be a nice boost to his fantasy value.

Diamondbacks right-handed pitching prospect Braden Shipley struck out five batters over seven one-run innings, scattering six hits, two hits, and one hit batsman for High-A Visalia on Friday.

Shipley has averaged 10 K/9 for the season, but opposing batters have hit .264/.333/.404 off him for the season. He sports a 4.39 ERA and a 1.350 WHIP, both of which were influenced by a few clunkers. Shipley needs to improve his command and breaking ball, but he has the potential to be a frontline starter and could see time in Arizona as soon as late 2015.
