Free MLB Pick – Arizona Diamondbacks at Tampa Bay Rays Tuesday, July 30


The players noted are right-hander Ian Kennedy and outfielder Jason Kubel, and the connection to Peavy stems back to the former Cy Young winner’s days in San Diego, where current Arizona general manager held the same post for the Padres — he traded Peavy to the White Sox at the trade deadline in 2009.

Only Charlotte came away with a win Monday

Combined, Kubel and Kennedy are earning just under $12 million for 2013 — of which about $4 million still is due — but Kennedy has two more years of arbitration eligibility and Kubel has a club option for 2014 at $7.5 million, or a $1 million buyout.

Neither player is having a good season, however, weakening their value on the trade market, but an interested club could benefit from the club control they each offer.

Perhaps even teams that believe they are on the brink of contention and are looking ahead to 2014 could be the most interested in the two Diamondbacks, possibly including the Kansas City Royals, Seattle Mariners, Cleveland Indians and Toronto Blue Jays.

Teams contending right now also could see an opportunity, particularly if Towers is mostly after the payroll relief.

ESPN The Magazine’s Buster Olney tweeted Monday that the White Sox are now telling clubs they intend to keep Peavy, but the buzz has been heavy, suggesting they’re still open to a deal if a club meets their asking price.
