Jake Peavy recently acknowledged he has “a lot to prove” in 2015. A few teams are interested in potentially having the free-agent right-hander prove himself on their watch.
Peavy is drawing interest from the San Francisco Giants, Atlanta Braves and Miami Marlins, sources told FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal. Rosenthal adds that Peavy is an option for the Marlins only if pitcher Dan Haren, who was recently acquired from the Los Angeles Dodgers, retires or gets traded.
Peavy’s 2014 season was a roller-coaster ride, to say the least. The 33-year-old struggled with the Boston Red Sox to begin the year but came on strong with the Giants in the second half following a midseason trade.
Peavy went 7-13 with a 3.73 ERA in 32 regular-season starts split between San Francisco and Boston. He went 1-9 with a 4.72 ERA in 20 starts with the Red Sox, and then went 6-4 with a 2.17 ERA in 12 starts with the Giants.
It’s difficult to pinpoint what type of contract Peavy will land in free agency because of the mixed results, which spilled over into the postseason. The 13-year veteran made two solid starts in the NLDS and NLCS before faltering in two World Series outings.
