Various media outlets, including Sports Illustrated and the New York Post, are reporting that the Chicago White Sox have again traded for San Diego Padres' ace Jake Peavy.

San Diego needed to get authorization to trade Peavy off the disabled list, and has reportedly done so to make this deal happen.

The specifics of the deal have not yet been announced. Peavy rejected a deal earlier this season, but has reportedly accepted the trade to Chicago's south side this time.

One of the key pieces of the proposed trade last time the two reached an agreement, Clayton Richard, was slated to start Friday night against the New York Yankees.

 UPDATE: Reports now are that the White Sox are giving up Richard, Aaron Poreda, Adam Russell and potentially Dexter Carter. All four are pitchers, with Richard and Poreda being southpaws while Russell and Carter throw right-handed.

Per Sports Illustrated's Jon Heyman, Peavy has accepted the trade to Chicago.
