Angels rumors: Edwin Jackson on radar

Patrick McDermott

The Halos are one of several teams in on the oft-traded free-agent right-hander.

The Los Angeles Angels are one of several teams that are in the mix to sign free-agent right-hander Edwin Jackson, reports Jon Heyman of CBS Sports:

The 29-year-old Jackson has been a hot commodity at winter meetings in the past, and there's no reason for this year to be any different. The right-hander posted adequate numbers for the Washington Nationals this past season, putting up a 4.03 ERA and 2.90 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 189⅔ innings across 31 starts.

His rumor mill has been strangely quiet thus far this offseason, with only a few murmurs here and there as teams line up behind Zack Greinke and Anibal Sanchez instead, but that does not mean talks for the right-hander cannot escalate quickly.

Jackson settled for a one-year, $11 million deal with the Nats for 2012, but is likely on the prowl for a multi-year deal once again. Whether he will get it this time around is anyone's guess, but the way money is flying off the shelves so far this fall makes it a definite possibility.
