Edwin Jackson Agrees To One-Year Deal With Nationals

“We saw an opportunity here to acquire a young, hard-throwing, power-pitching, innings-eating type of starting pitcher,” Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo said during a conference call Thursday with reporters. “We thought it was a good value at a good term.”

The 28-year-old Jackson split time between the Chicago White Sox and the World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals in 2011, finishing the season 12-9 with a 3.79 ERA.
