TORONTO (AP) — Pitcher Edwin Jackson has a new home in Toronto, one that will make him a major league record holder.
The Blue Jays acquired the 16-year veteran from Oakland on Saturday for cash. In 2018, Jackson matched Octavio Dotel by pitching his 13th big league team.
Jackson broke in with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2003 and pitched for Tampa Bay, Detroit, the White Sox, Arizona, St. Louis, Washington, the Cubs, Atlanta, San Diego, Miami and Baltimore.
He went 6-3 with a 3.33 ERA in 17 starts for the Athletics last season. Jackson had been pitching in Triple-A before the trade.
The Blue Jays have four starting pitchers on the injured list, including right-handers Clay Buchholz (shoulder) and Matt Shoemaker (out for the season after knee surgery), and left-handers Ryan Borucki (elbow) and Clayton Richard (right knee).
