White Sox interested in Edwin Jackson?

Rosenthal (FS):

The White Sox, frustrated by their inability to acquire Nationals first baseman Adam Dunn, instead are on the verge of ending up with one of the Nationals’ leading targets: Diamondbacks right-hander Edwin Jackson.

The Sox are in serious discussions about a trade in which they would obtain Jackson for rookie right-hander Daniel Hudson and a prospect, according to major-league sources.

… While the White Sox coveted Dunn, they shifted their focus to a starting pitcher after growing discouraged about their chances of completing a trade with the Nationals, sources say.

Fangraphs on Edwin Jackson: 104 K / 60 BB, 5.16 ERA, 4.27 FIP, 4.28 xFIP, 1.9 WAR, 50.5% GB%, .318 BABIP, 6.97 K/9, 4.02 BB/9


  • 2 years/$13.35M (2010-11)
    • $0.8M signing bonus
    • 10:$4.2M, 11:$8.35M

The numbers and the money say to me he’s not worth Hudson alone.

UPDATE: Rosenthal says it’s up to the Nationals what do the Sox do with Jackson, ie. send him to the Nationals for Adam Dunn or keeping him (ugh).


  1. Daniel’s trowing motion spells disaster. Sox would be making the right decision here.
