Phoenix, AZ (Sports Network) - The Arizona Diamondbacks avoided arbitration with pitcher Edwin Jackson on Sunday, agreeing to terms with the right-hander on a two-year deal.

Per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed, but reported the contract was worth a total of $13.35 million.

The Diamondbacks acquired Jackson along with right-handed pitcher Ian Kennedy in a three-team trade on December 9 that sent pitchers Max Scherzer and Daniel Schlereth to the Detroit Tigers and outfielder Curtis Granderson to the New York Yankees.

The 26-year-old Jackson posted a 13-9 record with a 3.62 ERA in 33 starts for the Tigers last season and made his first All-Star Game appearance.

In 139 career games (110 starts), Jackson is 38-39 with a 4.66 ERA over parts of seven seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers (2003-05), Tampa Bay Rays (2006-08) and Tigers (2009).
