MLB Trade Rumors: White Sox' Edwin Jackson May Be Headed To Toronto

The Chicago White Sox have an overabundance of starting pitching, to the point where they have at times this season used a six-man starting rotation.

With the trading deadline looming next Sunday, it would seem logical that the Sox might try to deal some of this surplus for help in other areas. Tuesday night, someone named Doug Seyller -- who doesn't appear to have any specific baseball connections -- tweeted that Edwin Jackson might be headed to the Blue Jays:

#WhiteSox Jackson and Teahen going to Toronto for frasor and a minor leaguer...de aza coming up from minors.

This possibility was also tweeted by Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal Wednesday morning, with some more intriguing information:

Sources: #WhiteSox in serious talks on EJax, Teahen to #BlueJays for Frasor and prospect. Danks, Floyd also on market. #tradedeadline #MLB

Jackson would seem the most likely White Sox starter to be traded. He's a free agent at the end of this season and the White Sox don't seem inclined to re-sign him. They have Philip Humber ready and available to step back into their rotation if they deal him. While Mark Teahen is a useful backup, the Sox have had bullpen issues and Jason Frasor would provide a solid setup complement to Jesse Crain.
