The Chicago Cubs signed free-agent pitcher Edwin Jackson to a four-year, $52 million deal, according to multiple reports.
Jackson, 29, went 10-11 with a 4.03 ERA in 189 2/3 innings with the Washington Nationals in 2012, after signing a one-year, $11-million deal with them. The Nationals didn't make a qualifying offer, so they won't receive draft-pick compensation.
The right-hander has played for seven teams, starting with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2003. He has a 70-71 career record with a 4.40 ERA.
