The 33-year-old Peavy isn’t having the ideal season with a dismal 1-9 record through 20 starts, 4.72 ERA, and giving up 20 home runs on the season. His strikeout to walk ratio is 2 to 1 (100K/46BB). Peavy will return to the National League West where he spent eight seasons with the San Diego Padres. He is a free agent at the end of the season.
