BOSTON (AP) — Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz didn’t hesitate when asked what he remembered most about newly acquired right-hander Jake Peavy.

Nearly seven years ago, the 37-year old Ortiz was in Japan with a group of major-league stars. He watched Peavy throw in the bullpen and told him he would win the Cy Young Award.

A year later, he was correct.

The Red Sox acquired the 2007 NL Cy Young winner from the Chicago White Sox in a three-team deal on Tuesday night that also sent shortstop Jose Iglesias to the Detroit Tigers.

Now, Boston thinks it has the perfect fit with the 32-year old Peavy.
