July 31 (Bloomberg) -- The Boston Red Sox acquired former Cy Young Award winner Jake Peavy as part of a three-team deal with the Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers less than 24 hours before today’s trade deadline.

The seven-player trade, in which shortstop Jose Iglesias went to the Tigers and outfielder Avisail Garcia moved to the White Sox, was announced by Red Sox General Manager Ben Cherington in a team e-mail late last night.

The Major League Baseball trade deadline is today at 4 p.m. New York time.

The Red Sox are a half-game behind the Tampa Bay Rays in the American League East division and are seventh of the 15 AL teams with a 3.80 earned run average.

Peavy, 32, a three-time All-Star, went 19-6 with a 2.54 ERA for the San Diego Padres in 2007 to win the Cy Young Award as the National League’s best pitcher. He is 8-4 this season for the White Sox with a 4.28 ERA, and has a record of 128-97 in 12 major league seasons with the Padres and the White Sox, whom he joined in 2009.

Iglesias, 23, an infielder, is hitting .330 in 62 games for Boston this season. Garcia, 22, hit .319 for the Tigers last year, including a .455 average in Detroit’s AL Championship Series victory against the New York Yankees, and has slumped to a .241 average in 30 games in 2013.

As part of the deal, Cherington said, the Red Sox also received right-handed reliever Brayan Villarreal, 26, from the Tigers and the White Sox got minor leaguers J.B. Wendelken and Francelis Montas, both right-handed pitchers, and infielder Cleuluis Rondon from Boston.
