Jake Peavy worked 7 2/3 innings and allowed only one run in Tuesday's victory over the Diamondbacks.
Peavy, who struck out four and walked one, is on fire right now. His Giants tenure didn't start out the best, you may recall. He went 0-3 with a 4.82 ERA and received only six runs of support total in his first three starts with San Francisco, but the right-hander came into play today 5-1 with a 1.12 ERA over his last six starts, getting an average of 6.92 runs per game of support. He only got two runs tonight, but that turned out to be the perfect number. Peavy, who has a 2.16 ERA overall with the Giants, has a big road start on deck against the Dodgers. Sep 17 - 12:26 AM

Jake Peavy struck out eight while limiting the Diamondbacks to one run in 5 2/3 innings in Thursday's win.

Aside from losing his bat and having it hit third baseman Jake Lamb in his fourth-inning plate appearance, Peavy was pretty sharp today. He is 5-1 with a 1.12 ERA in his last six starts, and he's dragged his season ERA below 4.00. He'll face Arizona again in his next start.
Sep 11 - 7:23 PM

Jake Peavy fired six scoreless innings in Friday's victory over the Tigers, scattering six hits and striking out three.

What was most impressive about the veteran right-hander's outing, is that he sat through a nearly two-hour rain delay and returned to throw his final two innings. He has done a phenomenal job since his return to the National League, registering a 2.36 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 42/12 K/BB ratio over his 53 1/3 innings. He'll look to continue that dominance on Thursday against the Diamondbacks.
Sep 6 - 1:07 AM

Jake Peavy blanked the Brewers for 7 2/3 innings, allowing just one hit, Saturday in his third victory for the Giants.

Peavy took a no-hitter into the eighth in this one before giving up a single to Mark Reynolds with one out. Since snapping his 12-game losing streak, Peavy has won three out of four, giving up a total of four runs in the process. He's certainly looking like a nice mixed-league asset at the moment.
Aug 31 - 1:21 AM

Jake Peavy pitched seven innings and allowed three runs -- one earned -- in Monday's loss to the Rockies.

Peavy struck out five, walked one, and coughed up six hits, five singles and a double. The veteran went 0-12 with a 5.25 ERA in his first 18 starts, but had given up only three runs across 14 innings in consecutive victories coming into this evening. He's only 2-4 with the Giants, but has accrued a sneaky 3.18 ERA since re-joining the NL West, getting him back onto the mixed league radar. Peavy welcomes Milwaukee to the Bay Area on Saturday.
Aug 26 - 1:19 AM

Jake Peavy won his second straight start by allowing two runs on 10 hits over seven innings in Wednesday's victory over the Cubs.

Across from the artist formerly known as Edwin Jackson, the outcome was never in doubt. Peavy had a 4-0 lead before his big toe even touched the rubber, and he enjoyed an 8-1 lead when he strode to the mound to pitch the bottom of the fourth. He's now won two games in the past week after starting the season 1-12. With the NL-worst Rockies traveling to San Francisco to take on Peavy next week, the veteran has a decent chance to keep the good times rolling.
Aug 21 - 12:42 AM

Jake Peavy earned his first win as a member of the Giants in Wednesday's 7-1 defeat of the White Sox.

It was also his first victory since April 5. Peavy held the White Sox to four hits and three walks while fanning three. The only run he allowed was on an Adam Dunn solo shot in the top of the fourth inning. Peavy will take on the Cubs at Wrigley Field next week. He remains a risky fantasy streamer.
Aug 13 - 6:37 PM

Jake Peavy lost yet again Thursday after giving up three runs in 5 2/3 innings Friday against the Brewers.

Peavy fell to 1-12 on the season. He hasn't won since April 5, and his team has lost each of his last 12 starts. A lot of it is poor run support, but Peavy is making a lot of his own trouble by struggling the third time through a lineup. In his Giants debut, he gave up three runs his third time through. Last week, he took a no-hitter into the seventh, only to give up four runs. Today, he allowed one run through five before giving up four hits and two runs in the sixth. Peavy still has it in him to be a quality pitcher for the Giants, but he probably needs a quicker hook from Bruce Bochy right now.
Aug 7 - 5:41 PM

Jake Peavy pitched seven innings and allowed four in Saturday's loss to the Giants.

The problem with flirting with the no-hitter is that rejection can land upon you swiftly and harshly, as Peavy found on Saturday. Peavy was actually perfect until one out in the seventh inning. And then Daniel Murphy doubled, the Mets put up four runs and Peavy lost. He's now lost eleven decisions in a row. His record stands at 1-11. Peavy holds an ERA of 4.85. Rejection hurts.
Aug 2 - 11:58 PM

Jake Peavy turned in a quality start in his Giants debut on Sunday but wound up as the losing pitcher after allowing four runs (three earned) on six hits over his six innings of work.

Peavy punched out five on the evening while walking two. His defense, specifically Dan Uggla and Michael Morse, didn’t do him any favors in this one. The Dodgers broke things open with a three-run fifth inning, highlighted by an RBI triple by Carl Crawford. Peavy will look to get in the win column when he takes on the Mets in New York on Saturday.

Giants acquired RHP Jake Peavy and cash considerations from the Red Sox for LHP Edwin Escobar and RHP Heath Hembree.

Peavy is scheduled to make his Giants debut on Sunday when he toes the slab against the Dodgers. While he struggled through his first 20 starts on the season (4.72 ERA, 1.43 WHIP), he should certainly benefit from a return to the National League West and is worth a look if available in mixed leagues.

Jake Peavy will make his Giants debut on Sunday against the Dodgers.

One of the reasons that the Giants pushed to get the deal done so quickly was to get Peavy active and in uniform in time for Sunday's ballgame. The deal is still pending approval from the commissioner's office.
Jul 26 - 12:46 PM

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.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Giants are the team in discussions with the Red Sox about acquiring Jake Peavy.

Jen Royle of the Boston Herald reported earlier that a National League club was close to acquiring the Boston right-hander, and the destination now appears to be known. With the continued uncertainty on the health of Matt Cain, Peavy would be a nice addition for rotation depth. His fantasy value would also increase with a return to the National League.

According to Jen Royle of the Boston Herald, an unnamed National League team is close to acquiring Jake Peavy from the Red Sox.

The only known NL squad rumored to have serious interest in Peavy, the Cardinals, are not believed to be the suitor in this potential deal. While nothing appears imminent, it's a situation worth monitoring. Brandon Workman would likely return to the Red Sox rotation in the event Peavy is dealt.
