Jake Peavy debuted in the Majors in 2002, roughly three years after he was a throwaway pick (15th Round) in the Amateur Draft.  

A righthanded starter, Peavy never left the Padres rotation for the entirety of his seven-year stay, with him emerging as the staff ace in 2004.  In that season, Peavy led the NL in ERA (2.27) and would be named to the All-Star Game the following season, this time finishing the year with a 2.88 ERA and a league-leading 216 Strikeouts.

After a disappointing 2006, Peavy had the best year of his career, winning the Pitcher's Triple Crown (19 Wins, 2.54 ERA, 240 SO) while also topping the NL in FIP (2.84), WHIP (1.061), and SO/9 (9.7).  Naturally, Peavy won the Cy Young, and he was an All-Star for the second time.

Peavy failed to reach those heights again, and he would be traded to the White Sox at the 2009 trading deadline.  With the Padres, Peavy posted a 92-68 record with 1,348 Strikeouts, which as of this writing, is the franchise record.
