Edwin Jackson agrees to 1-year deal with Nationals



WASHINGTON (AP) — Pitcher Edwin Jackson has agreed to a one-year contract with the Washington Nationals.

The team said Thursday the agreement is pending a physical.

A 28-year-old right-hander, Jackson was 12-9 with a 3.79 ERA last season for the Chicago White Sox and World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals, who acquired him on July 27. He walked seven in a Game 4 loss at the World Series, the most in a Series outing in 14 years.

He pitched a no-hitter for Arizona at Tampa Bay on June 25, 2010, when he walked eight, one shy of the record for a no-hitter.
