Report: Edwin Jackson has been traded to the White Sox

Jul 30, 2010, 12:57 PM EDT

Tim Brown from Yahoo! just tweeted that Edwin Jackson was just told that he was traded to the White Sox. In court that would be inadmissible hearsay.  In trade rumor land it’s basically gold.

My bestest buddy Jon Heyman reports that the Diamondbacks are getting starter Daniel Hudson and prospect David Holmberg in return.

No word if there’s a companion move such as the Sox flipping Jackson to Washington for Adam Dunn.  Likewise, there’s no word on why multiple teams are so interested in Edwin Jackson. Maybe his chest cavity is filled with gold or valuable spices or Unobtanium or something.  Because as a pitcher, he’s no great value.

Personally, I’d rather have Daniel Hudson, who is young and team-controlled for years, than Edwin Jackson who is only team-controlled through next season and isn’t, you know, all that good.

Obviously we’ll have more on this as the day goes on, including an analysis of the talent heading to Arizona and whatever happens when the other shoe drops on Adam Dunn and the Nats, if indeed it does.

    Great trade for Arizona.

    Maybe Edwin Jackson is the Spice.

    I sure hope this is part of something else. I would rather have Hudson than Jackson and think most teams other than hopefully the Nationals and Astros.

    I take it you and Mr. Heyman are still not speaking terms. With all of this interest over Jackson, you’d think he was a forty something left handed reliever (I miss Jesse Orosco).

    What do you think the Cardinals’ chances are in prying away Brian Roberts from Baltimore?

    Of course you’d rather have Hudson, but winning now is more important than winning later and these guys are in a pennant race.
