Today is the major league baseball trading deadline, and the Chicago White Sox, as expected, have traded Jake Peavy.

But it took three teams to get the deal done.

The White Sox dealt the 32 year old Peavy to the Boston Red Sox in a deal that also involved the Detroit Tigers.

The Red Sox, in addition to Peavy, also received right handed reliever Brayan Villareal, who wll be assigned to Triple A.

The other big name in the trade, shortstop Jose Iglesias, moves from Boston to Detroit, where he’ll be a solid replacement for Jhonny Peralta, who is expected to be suspended by baseball for his involvement in the biogenesis case.

The White Sox got four minor league prospects, one from the Tigers and three from the Red Sox.  Outfielder Avasail Garcia is considered to be the best power hitting prospect in the Tigers’ organization.  Twenty year old Francelis Montas can throw 100 miles per hour and was with the Red Sox Class A affiliate.  Right handed pitcher J. B. Wendelken and infielder Cleuluis Rondon also go to Chicago from the Boston organization.
