Padres To Explore Peavy Deals With Cubs, Dodgers

According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Padres intend to explore a possible Jake Peavy trade with the Cubs and Dodgers at next week's GM meetings.  Apparently Padres GM Kevin Towers would like to exhaust his possibilities with Peavy's five preferred NL clubs before engaging others.

Rosenthal notes that the Cubs do not have the quality young pitching the Padres crave.  They still have interest in Peavy, especially if they fail to re-sign Ryan Dempster.

The Dodgers aren't keen on giving up Clayton Kershaw or James McDonald.  Rosenthal believes the Dodgers have enough in-house pitching depth to buy out Brad Penny's 2009 option.

If Towers moves on to negotiate with the Yankees, Peavy will complicate matters by demanding his contract be supplemented.
