Jackson, Rasmus, Involved in Three-Team MLB Trade

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Two Columbus-area players were involved in a ten-player, three-team trade that was announced on Wednesday afternoon. Outfielder Colby Rasmus (Russell Co. HS) is heading to the Toronto Blue Jays, while pitcher Edwin Jackson (Shaw HS) was acquired by the St. Louis Cardinals.

The original trade between the Chicago White Sox and Blue Jays sent Jackson and infielder Mark Teahen to Toronto for pitchers Jason Frasor and Zach Stewart.

The Jays then made the deal with the Cardinals, sending Jackson, pitchers Mark Rzepczynski and Octavio Dotel, and outfielder Corey Patterson to St. Louis in exchange for Rasmus, and pitchers Brian Tallet, Trever Miller, and P.J. Walters.
