No-Hit Pitcher Edwin Jackson Traded to White Sox From Arizona, ESPN Says

Edwin Jackson, who pitched one of Major League Baseball’s five no-hitters this season for the Arizona Diamondbacks, was traded to the Chicago White Sox, ESPN.com reported.

The Diamondbacks get pitchers Daniel Hudson and David Homberg in change, the website reported without saying where it got its information.

Jackson, 26, no-hit the Tampa Bay Rays on June 25, walking eight batters and throwing 149 pitchers. In his first season in the National League, he was 6-10 with a 5.16 earned run average with the last-place Diamondbacks. For his career, Jackson has a 4.74 ERA with four teams.

Jackson was part of the three-team offseason deal in which outfielder Curtis Granderson joined the New York Yankees from the Detroit Tigers.
