CHICAGO -- Jake Peavy has finally agreed to pitch for the Chicago White Sox.
The San Diego Padres traded their ace to the White Sox on Friday, barely beating the deadline to make deals without waivers.
The Padres got four young pitchers for the 2007 NL Cy Young winner -- Clayton Richard, Aaron Poreda, Dexter Carter and Adam Russell.
In May, the Padres and White Sox agreed to a deal for Peavy, but he turned it down. But this time, Peavy agreed to waive his no-trade clause and joined the AL Central contenders.
"He never said no, he just said 'not yet,"' White Sox general manager Kenny Williams said.
