Giants re-signed RHP Jake Peavy to a two-year, $24 million contract.
The Giants and Peavy reached an agreement on a deal late last week. He'll reportedly receive a $4 million signing bonus with salaries of $7 million for 2015 and $13 million for 2016. Peavy was solid down the stretch with San Francisco this past season and stands a good chance to age gracefully by staying in the National League and making half of his starts in a pitcher-friendly ballpark.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that Jake Peavy has re-signed with the Giants on a two-year, $24 million contract.

Peavy gets a $4 million signing bonus and will then earn $7 million in 2015 and $13 million in 2016. The Giants also gave the veteran right-hander a full no-trade clause. Peavy thrived for the Giants down the stretch after coming over in a trade from the Red Sox, posting a 2.17 ERA across 12 starts. He'll turn 34 in May but should still have a couple decent years left as long as he can remain healthy.

According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Marlins, Braves and Giants have all shown interest in free agent Jake Peavy.

The Marlins' interest is contingent on Dan Haren following through with his inclination to retire after being dealt away from the west coast. Both the Braves and Giants are looking for pitching, with the Giants having missed out on a number of big-ticket free agents thus far this winter. Peavy had a 4.11 ERA this past season and shouldn't cost a team too much in terms of dollars or years.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports hears the Dodgers are checking in on a number of free agent pitchers, including Jake Peavy.

Peavy hasn't generated a lot of buzz this winter after winning a World Series ring with the Giants in October. The 33-year-old had a 4.11 ERA between the Giants and Red Sox this past season, eclipsing 200 innings for just the second time since 2007. With some of the big names starting to come off the board, Peavy and others should find a new home soon.

Jerry Crasnick of reports that the Marlins have been in touch with Jake Peavy's camp this offseason.

The Marlins' rotation is very young, so targeting a proven veteran makes sense. The market for Peavy has been fairly quiet this offseason, but a return to the Giants hasn't been ruled out and Crasnick mentions the Braves as a possibility. The Pirates, Royals, and Cubs are also in the market for pitching.

Jake Peavy didn’t have it Tuesday, getting chased after 1 1/3 innings and five runs allowed in a loss to the Royals.

It was the shortest outing of any non-injured starter in the World Series since Mark Thurmond went one-third of an inning in Game 5 of the 1984 Fall Classic. Only two of the runs had crossed the plate when Giants manager Bruce Bochy pulled Peavy, but he left the bases loaded and all three runs eventually came around to score. The veteran right-hander surrendered six hits and walked one. He didn’t yield many hard-hit balls, but he was missing his spots and Bochy had no choice but to give him the hook. The Giants will turn to Tim Hudson in the decisive Game 7.

Jake Peavy bruised the thumb on his pitching hand while trying to reach for a foul ball near the dugout in Game 3 of the World Series on Friday in San Francisco.

Peavy has passed all the necessary physical exams and felt fine during a light side session earlier this week, so he's been given the go-ahead to make his scheduled Game 6 start Tuesday night in Kansas City. But this is obviously still something worth keeping in mind. Peavy struggled against the Royals in Game 2 of the World Series last Wednesday, yielding four runs in five innings.

Jake Peavy once again failed to last six innings in a postseason start, allowing four runs over five-plus innings in a loss to the Royals in Wednesday's Game 2 of the World Series.

Peavy entered the sixth inning tied 2-2 and having thrown just 57 pitches, but after a Lorenzo Cain leadoff single and an Eric Hosmer walk manager Bruce Bochy decided he'd seen enough. The Royals scored five runs in the inning, including both of Peavy's inherited runners, saddling him with the loss. The start was Peavy's eighth postseason start in his career, and he hasn't completed six innings in any of those eight starts. Even so, Peavy won a ring with the Red Sox last year and has a shot at another this season if the Giants can prevail. Peavy may have a shot at affecting that outcome if the series goes to a Game 6.

Jake Peavy will start Wednesday's Game 2 of the World Series for the Giants.

Peavy was pulled early in a Game 2 loss to the Cardinals in the NLCS, but manager Bruce Bochy is going back to his veteran for a road start against the Royals. He'll be opposed by young flamethrower Yordano Ventura in a matchup of two very different pitchers. Peavy has struggled to go deep in any of his seven postseason starts in his career, never making it out of the sixth inning. He'll look to change that Wednesday.

Jake Peavy lasted just four innings in Game 2 of the NLCS against the Cardinals on Sunday, surrendering two runs on four hits.

Peavy also issued three walks and struck out a pair on the evening. He was tagged for a solo home run by Matt Carpenter in the third inning, and the Cardinals scratched out another run in the fourth courtesy of an RBI single off the bat of Randall Grichuk. With the series now knotted up at a game apiece, the Giants will turn to Tim Hudson in Game 3 when the series shifts back to San Francisco.

Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area reports the Giants and Jake Peavy have had very preliminary discussions about a new contract.

Baggarly referred to the talks as "pencil-sketch conversations," so it doesn't seem that anything is terribly imminent. Still, Baggarly notes that the club will make Peavy a priority this winter, and his resurgence since a mid-season deal has helped his stock in negotiations. Peavy will first focus on the Cardinals, getting the start in Sunday's Game 2 of the NLCS.

Jake Peavy will start for the Giants in NLCS Game 2.

Madison Bumgarner will pitch Game 1 in St. Louis against Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright and then Peavy will face off against Lance Lynn the next night. Tim Hudson is on tap for San Francisco in Game 3.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that Jake Peavy is available in relief for Game 4 of the NLDS on Tuesday.

Peavy would be in line to start Game 5 if there is one, but it's all hands on deck as the Giants look to close out the Nationals. "We're gonna do all we can to try to win the game," Bochy said.

Jake Peavy delivered a strong outing as the Giants took Game 1 of the National League Division Series from the Nationals in Washington on Friday, allowing only two hits over 5 2/3 scoreless innings.

It’s the first win in six career postseason starts for the 33-year-old hurler. The veteran right-hander struck out three and issued three free passes in the contest. The only real threat against him came in the sixth inning when Nate Schierholtz led off with a double and Jayson Werth drew a two-out walk to force Peavy from the game. The Giants will now turn to Tim Hudson on Saturday looking to take a commanding lead in the best-of-five series.

Jake Peavy will start for the Giants in Game 1 of their NLDS matchup against the Nationals.

Madison Bumgarner started Wednesday's Wild Card Game, hurling a nine-inning shutout at the Pirates, so he won't be available until NLDS Game 3. Peavy posted an outstanding 2.17 ERA in 78 2/3 innings for the Giants after the July 26 trade that got him out of Boston. He'll need to be at his best against Nats ace Stephen Strasburg.
