The San Francisco Giants have acquired SP Jake Peavy from the Boston Red Sox, in exchange for minor league Ps Edwin Escobar and Heath Hembree.
Fantasy Tip: Peavy has posted an unsightly 1-9 record and 4.72 ERA this season but has pitched better of late, having had five quality starts in his last seven outings. He is worthy of consideration in NL-only leagues but if you're expecting him to be as dominant as he was with the San Diego Padres, you'll probably be sorely disappointed. Expect Yusmeiro Petit to lose his spot in San Francisco’s starting rotation to make room for Peavy.

San Francisco Giants RP Heath Hembree is in the discussion for a September call-up. He has 14 saves and 23 strikeouts to only five walks in his last 19 outings with Triple-A Fresno.
Fantasy Tip: Hembree won't be in live for any save chances with the Giants, however. He won't be fantasy-relevant.

San Francisco Giants RP Heath Hembree isn't yet an option for a promotion because the organization doesn't want to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for him until there's confidence that he'll remain in a late-inning relief role. It's also possible that the Giants will use Hembree as trade bait prior to the July 31 non-waiver deadline. They may fear that if he's called up and struggles, his value will be damaged.
Fantasy Tip: Kind of a fearful way of doing business, but don't have an extreme need yet. Hembree has a shot to be the club's closer down the road, if enough breaks in his favor.
