    Done deal...

    http://sports.espn.go.com/chicago/news/story?id=4369814

    CHICAGO -- Jake Peavy has finally agreed to pitch for the Chicago White Sox.

    The San Diego Padres traded their ace to the White Sox on Friday, barely beating the deadline to make deals without waivers.

    The Padres got four young pitchers for Peavy -- Clayton Richard, Aaron Poreda, Dexter Carter and Adam Russell.

    In May, the Padres and White Sox agreed to a deal for Peavy, but the 2007 NL Cy Young Award winner turned it down. But this time, Peavy agreed to waive his no-trade clause and joined the AL Central contenders.

    "He never said no, he just said 'not yet,' " White Sox general manager Kenny Williams said.

    The 28-year-old Peavy is 6-6 with a 3.97 ERA in 13 starts with the Padres this season but has been on the disabled list since June 13 with a strained tendon in his right ankle. Williams said the White Sox didn't expect Peavy to pitch until the end of August.

    Over eight major league seasons with the Padres, Peavy is 92-68 with a 3.29 ERA and 1,348 strikeouts in 212 starts. He was a unanimous selection for the Cy Young Award in 2007 when he went 19-6 with a 2.54 ERA and 240 strikeouts in 34 starts.

    He will give the White Sox a top starter along with lefty Mark Buehrle, who pitched a perfect game in July. Peavy joins a rotation that includes Gavin Floyd, John Danks and Jose Contreras. The White Sox began play Friday in third place in the AL Central, two games behind first-place Detroit and a half-game back of the Twins.

    Richard, who pitched well in his past two starts, was the scheduled starter Friday night against the Yankees before the trade was announced.

    The 25-year-old lefty was 4-3 with a 4.65 ERA in 26 games, including 14 starts, with the White Sox this season.

    Baseball Prospectus: Peavy's ERA will go up

    Peavy hasn't pitched since June 9 because of a strained tendon in his ankle, but even if he doesn't return until late August as projected, the Sox still have him under contract for the next three years at $52 million. He's pricey, but not unreasonably so for a front-line pitcher of his caliber. As a fly baller (41 percent ground-ball rate), his ERA will take a bit of a hit in moving from pitcher-friendly Petco Park to the homer-happy Cell.
