PITCHER EDWIN JACKSON TO TIE MAJOR LEAGUE RECORD MONDAY NIGHT

The Oakland Athletics have called up pitcher Edwin Jackson from the minor leagues and he will be their starting pitcher on Monday night. Why is this news? This will be a record tying 13th different major league baseball team that Edwin Jackson has played for- tying the record of retired pitcher Octavio Dotel who pitched for 13 teams during his career which lasted from 1999 to 2013.

Jackson, a right handed pitcher- has a career record of 98-120 with a 4.67 ERA in 377 career games. His career runs like this- 2003- LA Dodgers, 2006- Tampa Bay, 2009-Detroit, 2010 Arizona, 2010 Chicago White Sox, 2011- St. Louis, 2012- Washington, 2013- Chicago Cubs, 2015- Atlanta, 2016-Miami 2016- San Diego, 2017 Baltimore and tomorrow Oakland. At age 34 he still has a good shot of adding another team and having the record to himself. With all those travels you’d think he’d have some interesting stories to tell.

    • I never thought about that- I think in looking at his pitching over the years- he seems to be good enough to pitch in the major leagues- but always a borderline type pitcher to make a teams roster. Well traveled but always seems to find a new home.
