Jake Peavy Rumors

4:27pm: Peavy would need "a lot of convincing" to approve a trade to any AL team, according to his agent.

3:25pm: The Astros haven’t inquired on Peavy recently, but Peavy would definitely waive his no-trade clause to play for Houston.  In fact, it might be his top choice.  Astros GM Ed Wade did ask about Peavy in July.

3:06pm: Buster Olney has more.  Peavy has indicated interest only in the five previously mentioned NL teams.  Olney says Peavy has not given any indication that he’d accept a deal to the Yankees or any other AL team.  Still, the Padres will gauge interest from American League teams because talks with NL clubs aren’t close.  Olney says the Yanks have discussed Peavy internally but doesn’t say whether Brian Cashman has discussed it with Kevin Towers.

10:03am: According to Dan Graziano of the Newark Star-Ledger, the Yankees have had preliminary discussions with the Padres about Jake Peavy (hat tip to River Ave. Blues).  Peavy was apparently a hot topic at the Yankees’ organizational meetings.  Peavy’s agent hinted he might accept a trade to the Yankees, but he does prefer the NL.

Peavy’s preferred cities are Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, and St. Louis.  Despite that, Graziano says the Mets have interest.  The Padres are aggressively shopping Peavy, seeking two young pitchers and a near MLB-ready center fielder.
