D-backs hesitant to deal both Haren and Jackson
Teams have inquired about RHP Edwin Jackson, but the D-backs would be hesitant to deal both Jackson and Dan Haren.
Jackson’s salary jumps from $4.2 million this year to $8.35 million next year, the final season of his contract. Haren is due $12.75 million in 2011 and 2012 with a club option in 2013 for $15.5 million.
“I think preference would be to keep both or at least one of them,” D-backs team president/CEO Derrick Hall said. “But again anything is possible because if you’re getting enough in return you would have to consider it.”
