The Toronto Blue Jays have acquired Edwin Jackson in a trade with the Oakland Athletics.

The Athletics received cash in the deal.

Jackson would set a record by pitching for 14 Major League teams when he debuts with the Blue Jays.

"Hopefully he's going to give us a spark," Charlie Montoyo said. "We need an arm like that and he's been around. I've seen him for a long time now so I'm hoping he helps us out."
