Cubs Rumors: Chicago Frontrunner for Edwin Jackson

Yesterday it was reported that free agent Edwin Jackson had narrowed his list of suitors down to two teams; the Chicago Cubs and Texas Rangers. Now, Jim Bowden of ESPN is saying that the Cubs are the frontrunner for Jackson.

Bowden adds that Jackson and his representation are continuing negotiations with both the Cubs and the Rangers at this time, and he says an offer of four years and $52 million is in the “ball park.”

The Cubs have been attempting to replenish their rotation this winter through free agency, as they’ve already signed Scott Baker and Scott Feldman and are reportedly nearing an agreement with Carlos Villanueva. Chicago has also targeted Anibal Sanchez.

Whatever offseason additions they end up making will join a rotation that already includes incumbents Jeff Samardzija, Matt Garza and Travis Wood.
