Giants trade for Peavy

– The San Francisco Giants boosted their rotation for the stretch run by acquiring right-hander Jake Peavy, a former Wizard, from the Boston Red Sox on Saturday for a pair of minor league pitchers.

The 2007 NL Cy Young Award winner will start tonight’s series finale against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Giants have plenty of familiarity with Peavy, a former Wizard who pitched for manager Bruce Bochy with the San Diego Padres in the playoffs in 2005-06.
