Edwin Jackson a nice addition to the Tigers

According to Fox Sports, the Tigers are about to make a trade for the Rays Edwin Jackson for Matt Joyce. If true, this would be a nice deal for the Detroit in exchange for Joyce. Edwin Jackson is a RHP starter who gives Detroit another decent starter that the team is currently low on. In return they ship away Matt Joyce who is currently blocked in left field by Carlos Guillen and in right field by Magglio Ordonez.

My only nit-pick is that Edwin is another right-hander leaving the only viable lefty options being Dontrelle Willis and Nate Robertson, and I’m not certain Willis is really that viable currently. Edwin’s 2008 season was quite a bit better than previous seasons and saw his walk rate drop and strikeouts rise.
