ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Arizona right-hander Edwin Jackson will get extra rest after throwing 149 pitches to complete the fourth no-hitter of the major league season.

Diamondbacks manager A. J. Hinch said Sunday that Jackson will pitch Friday or Saturday against the Los Angeles Dodgers instead of his scheduled start Wednesday at St. Louis. Arizona explored several options to ensure Jackson's arm recovers before his next start.

Jackson walked eight and allowed 10 baserunners overall while beating the Tampa Bay Rays 1-0 on Friday night.

It has not been determined yet who will replace Jackson on Wednesday.
