Jackson Introduced as a Cub

CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Cubs

have confirmed a contract agreement with right-handed pitcher Edwin Jackson.

 

The Cubs announced the move

yesterday afternoon after agreeing to a four-year, $52 million deal last month.

 

The Cubs will be the eighth team

in 11 years for the 29-year-old Jackson, who also pitched for the White Sox. He

is 70-71 lifetime with a 4.40 ERA. He was 10-11 with a 4.03 ERA for Washington

last season. 

Despite bouncing from team to team, Cubs general

manager Jed Hoyer says the 29-year-old Jackson has "proven his durability"

and talent.
