PHOENIX -- The Chicago White Sox have acquired pitcher Edwin Jackson from the Arizona Diamondbacks in exchange for pitchers Dan Hudson and David Holmberg.

Jackson was in his first year with Arizona after being acquired from Detroit in a three-team deal that included the New York Yankees last December.

The 29-year-old right-hander is just 6-10 with a 5.16 earned run average in 21 starts this season. However, his crowning achievement came on June 25 against Tampa Bay when he threw the second no-hitter in Arizona history.

Jackson has a career mark of 44-49 with a 4.74 ERA in 160 games, including 131 starts, in eight big league seasons with the Dodgers, Rays, Tigers and Diamondbacks.

After a 14-win season for the Rays as part of their American League pennant season in 2008, Jackson was shipped to Detroit and had his best year in 2009. He was 13-9 with a 3.62 ERA in 33 starts and earned his first All-Star nod.

Hudson was considered one of Chicago's top prospects and was recalled earlier this month after a record of 11-4 with a 3.47 earned run average in 17 starts for Triple-A Charlotte. He has made three starts for the Sox this season, posting a record of 1-1 with a 6.32 earned run average.

The 23-year-old right-hander has made nine big league appearances, including five starts, and has a mark of 2-2 with a 4.72 ERA. He was 30-13 with a 2.90 ERA in 57 games from 2008-10 in the minors.

Holmberg, just 19 years old, has compiled a record of 3-3 with a 4.02 ERA in 21 games, including 14 starts, during his two seasons in Chicago's minor league system. The lefty was selected by the White Sox in the second round of last year's draft.
