Who will win the sweepstakes for veteran starter Jake Peavy?

In case you didn’t know, the Chicago White Sox will be sellers at the 2013 trade deadline.

Currently trailing Detroit by 18 games in the American League Central, general manager Rick Hahn and company are looking to move many of their top players, including veteran starter Jake Peavy

Peavy, 32, is the team’s most valuable trade chip heading into the deadline, as he’s easily the top pitcher on the market and therefore capable of commanding a significant return.

And with their eyes set on the future, the White Sox are hoping to land multiple top-ranked prospects in exchange for the former NL Cy Young winner. However, as's Buster Olney mentioned in his column this morning (Insider subscription required), few teams are entertaining the idea of parting with their top prospects in exchange for the oft-injured right-hander.

“What the White Sox have indicated to other teams is that they want major league ready pitching in return for Peavy, which, in 2013, is like saying to other folks on a sinking ship that you want to acquire their lifeboat,” said Olney. “Teams are not nearly as willing to part with that sort of commodity as they used to be.”

But despite Chicago’s steep asking price, there are numerous teams that figure to remain involved in the Peavy sweepstakes over the next couple of days. 

Here’s a look at five teams capable of putting together a realistic prospect package to land Peavy before Wednesday’s deadline.
