The White Sox are going to decline Jake Peavy’s 2013 option

Jon Heyman reports that the White Sox are not going to exercise Jake Peavy’s 2013 option.

Makes sense give that the option is for $22 million, which is way too much for almost every pitcher out there.  Peavy will get a $4 million buyout on the option.

And he’ll make decent money in free agency this year after showing that he’s got his groove back.  To date he’s thrown 198 and two-thirds innings, putting any concerns about his durability after his injury-plagued past few years.  And he’s been good too, posting a 3.26 ERA, a WHIP of 1.112 and striking out 177.
