Jake Peavy may still represent self in free agency this winter

Brace Hemmelgarn-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Chicago White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy still hasn't decided whether to hire an agent or represent himself in contract negotiations with teams this winter.

Chicago White Sox starting pitcher Jake Peavy is still considering whether to hire an agent or represent himself in negotiations for a new contract this winter, according to Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune. At the moment, he's considering agents John Boggs and Jeff Berry in addition to the possibility of representing himself.

Recently, Peavy first voiced the idea of possibly representing himself in contract negotiations with teams this winter instead of hiring an agent. The White Sox still hold a club option on the pitcher for next season, but it's worth $22 million with a $4 buyout, so the general expectation is that the team will decline.

Coming off a pretty impressive season, Peavy will likely be able to command significant interest this offseason despite being a 31-year-old with one healthy season in the past four years. Over 31 starts in 2012, he's posted a 3.37 ERA with 186 strikeouts and 48 walks in 211 innings, numbers that any team would be pleased with.
