Jake Peavy has been telling teams that he plans to pitch in 2018.
Peavy sat out the entire 2017 season to spend time with his four sons following a divorce from his wife. The 36-year-old right-hander had a 5.54 ERA in 118 2/3 innings with the Giants in 2016 and will likely have to settle for a non-guaranteed minor league contract or an incentive-driven one-year deal on this winter's free agent market. But he figures to get a shot somewhere. Wed, Nov 15, 2017 09:45:00 AM

Jake Peavy (family) told Alex Speier of the Boston Globe that he plans to return to Major League Baseball eventually.

Peavy turned down all offers this winter to spend time with his four sons following a divorce from his wife. "I can tell you with certainty, without a shadow of a doubt, I will play baseball again," the 36-year-old right-hander said Tuesday. "Whether that be this year or next year, I’m still up in the air. There are some opportunities to [sign] tomorrow. If that was to happen, I’m grateful for that. But the last year of my life has presented challenges I didn’t foresee coming. It’s something I’ve embraced."

Jake Peavy has yet to sign with a team due to family issues.

Peavy is going through a divorce, and he has four young sons. "It hurts not to be in spring training," the veteran right-hander told ESPN. "I know that day is coming, but right now being a dad is absolutely No. 1. There’s no way in a million years that I could leave my boys at this time." There should be a minor league contract out there somewhere for him when he's ready to return to the mound.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that Jake Peavy is among the list of free agent hurlers that the Padres remain interested in.

Rosenthal also lists Doug Fister and Jered Weaver as potential options, but cautions that Weaver is the least likely of the trio. Peavy broke in with the Padres in 2002 and posted a 3.29 ERA over 212 starts with the Friars, winning the National League Cy Young Award in 2007. While he's an afterthought in most fantasy drafts at this stage, a move to Petco Park could be a nice boost to his value.

Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Padres have had discussions with free agent right-hander Jake Peavy.

Peavy is coming off a career-worst 5.54 ERA over 21 starts and 10 relief appearances with the Giants, but he'd have a clear path to a spot in the Padres' rotation if he can stay healthy. The 35-year-old was originally drafted by the Padres in 1999 and spent the first eight years of his career with the club while posting a 3.29 ERA over 212 starts. He won the NL Cy Young Award in 2007. He's going to have to settle for a one-year deal at this stage of his career, so a reunion could make sense for all involved.

Giants activated RHP Jake Peavy from the 15-day disabled list.

Peavy will join the San Francisco bullpen in a long relief role after missing a little over two weeks with a lower back strain. The veteran righty owns a disappointing 5.55 ERA in 116 2/3 innings this season.

Jake Peavy (back) will be activated Wednesday.

Peavy has been on the disabled list since August 27, retroactive to August 21, with a lower back strain. The veteran right-hander owns a rough 5.55 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 116 2/3 innings this season with San Francisco. He'll be used in long relief initially.

Jake Peavy received a cortisone shot for his lower back strain on Tuesday.

That'll keep him shut down for the next couple of days, but it should ultimately expedite his recovery. Peavy landed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday. He's aiming to return around mid-September.

Giants placed RHP Jake Peavy on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain.

The Giants had been hopeful he would recover in time to make his scheduled start on Saturday, as he was already filling in for the injured Matt Cain. Albert Suarez will start in his place against the Braves on Saturday.

Jake Peavy will start Saturday against the Braves.

Peavy is filling in for Matt Cain, who was placed on the disabled list with a lower back strain. Cain could be back next week, so this might be the only start Peavy gets. He was dropped from the rotation after the Giants acquired left-hander Matt Moore at the trade deadline.

Jake Peavy has been sent to the bullpen.

Matt Moore, acquired from the Rays at the August 1 trade deadline, will take over his rotation spot Thursday against the Phillies. Peavy had registered a 5.47 ERA in 21 starts this season for the Giants.
Tue, Aug 2, 2016 05:37:00 PM

Jake Peavy scattered five hits, three runs and a walk over four innings Saturday in a no-decision against the Nationals.

Peavy logged seven strikeouts before being lifted for a pinch-hitter in the fourth inning. The 74-pitch effort represented his lightest workload since May 20. The right-hander hasn't looked sharp over his last four outings, going 0-2 in that span with a 6.98 ERA. He'll look for better results Friday against the same team he just faced.
Sat, Jul 30, 2016 08:10:00 PM

Jake Peavy gave up three homers and six runs over five-plus innings Monday in a loss to the Reds.

Peavy had a great run in late May and June, but he's given up 20 runs -- 17 earned -- over 25 1/3 innings in his last five starts. His rotation spot could again come into jeopardy if he's not better next time out.
Tue, Jul 26, 2016 01:55:00 AM

Jake Peavy allowed two runs on seven hits over 4 1/3 innings Saturday, settling for a no-decision against the Diamondbacks.

Peavy didn't pitch terribly badly -- rather, the results weren't terribly bad -- but Giants manager Bruce Bochy was proactive with his bullpen when Peavy put two runners on in the fifth inning. Peavy missed out on the chance for his sixth win in the process, remaining at 5-7 with a 5.09 ERA and 1.45 WHIP through 18 starts. He'd actually been pretty good over the previous month before Saturday's outing, and Peavy will look to get back on the right track after the All-Star break.

Jake Peavy struck out six while tossing 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball in a 3-1 victory over the Rockies.

He gave up five base hits and walked a pair on the day, falling just short of going seven innings with his pitch count rising to 109. Peavy has mostly pitched very well of late but was coming off an awful outing against the A's, so it's nice to see him get back on track. He gets the Diamondbacks on Sunday to finish out the first half.
