Jon Heyman gets the breaking news:
The White Sox have reached agreement with the Padres on a trade for Jake Peavy but are awaiting Peavy's approval now, SI.com has learned.
Peavy has full no-trade power and the trade will be entirely his call. The sides are expecting a fairly quick decision by Peavy.
Chicago's package is said to include pitchers Clayton Richard(notes) and Aaron Poreda and the deal is still contingent upon Peavy waiving his no-trade clause. Though it would appear Peavy is fed up with losing in San Diego and is said to prefer playing in the Midwest, the San Diego Union-Tribune has reported that Peavy may have some reservations in playing for White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen.
