Edwin Jackson To Washington Nationals: Former Cardinals' Pitcher's Contract In $10 Million Range, Report Says

The Washington Nationals have signed former St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Edwin Jackson to a one-year contract in the $10 million "range," according to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman first reported the news, but Rosenthal was first with contract specifics.

Jackson, 27, spent last season split between the Chicago White Sox and St. Louis Cardinals, helping the latter win the 2011 World Series. Overall, he finished with a 12-9 record and 3.79 ERA in 31 starts. He was slightly better for the Cardinals (5-2, 3.58 ERA) than he was with the White Sox (7-7, 3.92 ERA). The Nationals will be his seventh team in his short career.

Washington nearly acquired Jackson at the 2010 MLB Trade Deadline, but he was sent from the Arizona Diamondbacks to the White Sox instead. He joins a rotation that includes Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Jordan Zimmermann and, for the time being, John Lannan. The Nationals are reportedly shopping Lannan for a position player.
