|Cubs set final rotation plans, send Edwin Jackson to bullpen |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/23/14) The Cubs announced the probable starters for the final series of the season Tuesday, tabbing Eric Jokisch to face the Brewers Friday, Tsuyoshi Wada to take the mound Saturday and Kyle Hendricks to pitch the season's final game Sunday.
With the news, Edwin Jackson has been moved to the bullpen for the remainder of the season.
|Edwin Jackson gets obliterated in first start back from DL |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(9/19/14) Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson failed to make it out of the opening frame in his first start back from a strained lat muscle on Friday at home against the Dodgers.
Jackson, who was activated from the disabled list before the game, served up a three-run home run to Matt Kemp and a run scoring single to Juan Uribe before leaving the game. He was shelled for five runs on four hits and one walk over two-thirds of an inning, dropping to 6-15 on the year.
Jackson owns a 6.38 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP over 27 starts (139 2/3 innings). His finale start of the season will come Friday at Milwaukee.
|Edwin Jackson to draw start Friday vs. Dodgers |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/16/14) Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson is set to start Friday against the Dodgers, the team announced Tuesday.
Jackson has been out since Aug. 20 due to a strained lat muscle. He'll return to a 6.09 ERA and 123:61 K:BB ratio in 139 innings.
|Edwin Jackson begins work in bullpen |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/30/14) Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson tossed a low-intensity bullpen session Saturday, and told MLB.com his strained right lat is improving.
"It's getting better," Jackson said. "Just needed rest and recovery."
Jackson is hoping to return at some point during the final month of the season, though the Cubs surely won't rush him back. He had a 6.09 ERA in 139 innings of work prior to the injury.
|Jacob Turner in, Edwin Jackson out of Cubs rotation |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(8/23/14) What was suspected is now official: Jacob Turner is set to start Wednesday for the Cubs. He is replacing struggling Edwin Jackson in the rotation.
Turner has pitched two games out of the bullpen since the trade that brought him from Miami. He has been battered this season to the tune of a 4-7 record and 5.77 ERA. Jackson has been a mess for months. He is 6-14 with a 6.09 ERA.
|Looking to get sneaky with free agency and add a decent middle-of-the-rotation arm without forfeiting a draft pick, the Cubs instead got the worst of Edwin Jackson in 2013. So now they'll look to redeem whatever they can out of the four-year, $52 million deal they gave him heading into it. Translation: He has a rotation spot. That much is certain. What isn't so certain is if he really deserves one. His one season with Washington in 2012, when he went 10-11 with a 4.03 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 8.0 strikeouts per nine innings, was one of the better ones he's had in his career. Those numbers would barely make him mixed league-viable. He throws hard, but aside from 2012, he doesn't strike out batters at a high rate. He struggles with walks at times. He most likely isn't getting better at age 30. Seeing as he also pitches for a rebuilding club, drafting Jackson in Fantasy would damage your team's ERA and WHIP without promising much in return. He's looking like strictly an NL-only option these days.
