|Edwin Jackson picks up first win |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(4/19/14) Cubs starting pitcher Edwin Jackson fell just short of his first quality start of the season Saturday, but still earned his first win as he took the Reds down, 8-4.
Jackson made it through five innings without trouble, and didn't get a chance to finish the sixth after allowing two runs. Still, he pitched well enough to get the win, as he was charged with two runs on eight hits and two walks, while striking out five.
Jackson is 1-1 through four starts, with an ugly 5.40 ERA. He will look for his first quality start in his next trip to the mound, Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

(4/13/14) The struggles continued for Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson on Sunday, as he suffered his first loss of the season in his team's 6-4 defeat to the Cardinals. The right-hander surrendered four runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out five over six innings pitched.
Jackson has allowed 10 runs over his last two starts (10 2/3 innings). He owns a 6.19 ERA and a 1.88 WHIP in 16 innings pitched this season. He'll look for his first win of the season Friday at Milwaukee.
|Edwin Jackson surrenders six runs vs. Pirates Tuesday |

(4/8/14) Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson struggled Tuesday, giving up six earned runs on nine hits and four walks in 4 2/3 innings while striking out four in his team's 7-6 loss to the Pirates.
Jackson didn't factor into the decision for the second straight start, but while he pitched around trouble while walking four batters in his debut, he wasn't nearly as effective Tuesday, as the Pirates racked up four runs in the first inning alone. Jackson will face the Cardinals on the road Sunday.
|Edwin Jackson walks four in no-decision Wednesday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(4/3/14) Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's season debut after giving up two earned runs on two hits and four walks in 5 1/3 innings while striking out five in his team's 4-3, 16-inning loss to the Pirates.
Jackson did well to limit the damage despite the high number of walks, and both hits he surrendered were singles. He'll take on the Pirates again Tuesday, this time at home.
|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.
