Jackson and Kennedy to be introduced Tuesday
The D-backs announced that RHPs Edwin Jackson and Ian Kennedy will be introduced to the media at a press conference at Chase Field at 1:30 p.m. MST on Tuesday.
The pair were acquired in last week’s three-team trade at the Winter Meetings.
Both are familiar with the area. Jackson made his big league debut at Chase when he was just 20 years old and pitching for the Dodgers.
Kennedy, meanwhile, pitched a few months ago in the Arizona Fall League and joked with reporters after the trade was made that he would have done some house hunting while he was out here if he’d known he was going to get dealt here.
MLB.com will carry the press conference live.
