Jake Peavy: Jake Peavy: Braves Out of the Running for Now

Posted on November 18, 2008 at 9:39 PM


While the Braves have said they have withdrawn from the Peavy trade sweepstakes, Padres GM Kevin Towers says talks could be revived. "You never know ... we certainly made more progress with them," Towers told the Braves' official web site. "We were able to ID and agree upon a large part of the package."


The Cubs may drop out of the running after re-signing Ryan Dempster and there hasn't been reports of substantial talks with the Angels, Yankees or another club. As a result, many analysts still think Peavy will ultimately be traded to Atlanta. The two teams appeared close to a deal last week with reports of Peavy going to Atlanta for Yunel Escobar, Gorkys Hernandez, Charlie Morton or Jo-Jo Reyes and either Blaine Boyer or one of two minor league left-handers.
