Peavy headed to White Sox

CHICAGO (AP) -- 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 shortly before the deadline for making deals without waivers.

The Padres got four young pitchers for Peavy -- Clayton Richard, Aaron Poreda, Dexter Carter and Adam Russell.

In May, Padres and White Sox agreed to a deal for Peavy, but the 2007 NL Cy Young winner turned it down. But this time, Peavy agreed to waive his no-trade clause and joined the AL Central contenders.
