Edwin Jackson continued his journey around the Major Leagues with his Orioles debut
Edwin Jackson is well-traveled. Did you know he was born in Germany? Oh, and entering the 2017 season, the 33-year-old pitcher had played for 11 separate teams -- just two shy of Octavio Dotel's Major League record.
Back in April, he came a step closer to making that 12 separate teams, signing a Minor League deal with the O's:

And, on Wednesday, he finally made it official, pitching in Baltimore's game against the Pirates.
Jackson started his career with the Dodgers, threw a no-hitter with the D-backs in 2010, and finished last season with the Padres. But we won't tell you all of the teams he's played for -- that would make this quiz far too easy.
