The trading frenzy is expected to pickup here in the coming days, and the Boston Red Sox have made sure of it.

According to Red Sox beat writer Alex Speier and ESPN’s Buster Olney, Boston has reportedly dealt starting pitcher Jake Peavy to the San Francisco Giants in exchange for two pitching prospects – Edwin Escobar and Heath Hembree

Olney reports that both teams will split Peavy’s salary for this season ($5 million), and he’s expected to start Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Peavy now joins a rotation that already has Madison Bumgarner, Matt Cain, Tim Hudson and Tim Lincecum.

The 33-year-old is not having a good season, and his record shows it (1-9), along with an atrocious 4.72 ERA. However, he does have 100 strikeouts, which is just 21 shy of his total last season.

Peavy has experience pitching in the N.L. West, as he was rostered with the San Diego Padres for the first seven-plus seasons.
