Edwin Jackson was a key part of the Curtis Granderson deal, and he returns to Arizona, the site of his major league debut six years ago. Jackson was doused in beer by teammates after beating the Diamondbacks on his 20th birthday, defeating The Big Unit, a man one day shy of being twice Jackson's age.
A positive piece of news for the Dodgers is that it appears one of the final two rotation spots will be filled with in house candidates. Sometimes a budget crisis can force a team to make the right decisions.
Meanwhile, ex-Dodger Randy Wolf figured to give the Brewers his answer to their three-year, $27 million offer today, per Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. It looks like his answer was yes, per Ken Rosenthal.
The Dodgers will receive no draft picks as compensation for losing Wolf.
