The Chicago White Sox made their biggest move of the season.
Starting pitcher Jake Peavy was traded to Boston Red Sox in a three-team deal with Detroit.
The Sox get four prospects in return, including the Detroit Tigers’ top outfield prospect, Avisail Garcia.
Peavy was hampered by injury this season, but joins a playoff contender in Boston.
He tweeted this late Tuesday night:
THANK YOU Chicago! It's been an honor & a privilege to pitch for u! You are 1st class & I will never forget you! So many emotions right now!—
