Edwin Jackson turned in a quality start on Saturday, yielding two runs in six innings but took a no-decision versus the Nationals.
He struck out only one batter and walked three but managed to deliver good results nonetheless. This was his second start since joining the Padres last week after starting the season in the Marlins' bullpen. He has walked more batters than he has struck out this year, which is obviously a harbinger of doom in the long run. He will take his 4.30 ERA into a home matchup with the Reds next week.

Edwin Jackson flirted with a no-hitter in his Padres debut on Sunday, until Conor Gillaspie blasted a three-run homer with one out in the seventh inning.

For the night, he finished allowing three runs (two earned) on one hit and five walks, striking out four in the process. Jackson looked terrific through the first six frames, but then had to sit for nearly 35 minutes while the Padres rallied in the top half of the seventh. With Drew Pomeranz out of town, Jackson could have a chance to secure a spot in the rotation, and given that he pitches half of his games at Petco Park, it's not unreasonable to think he could carve out some value in mixed leagues.

Padres purchased the contract of RHP Edwin Jackson from Triple-A El Paso.

Jackson will start on Sunday against the Giants. He's not guaranteed anything beyond the spot start and can be ignored for fantasy purposes.
Jul 17 - 2:30 PM

Edwin Jackson will be called up from Triple-A El Paso to start Sunday's game against the Giants.

It's unclear if he'll be making just one start or if the Padres plan on keeping him in the starting rotation. The veteran is winless in five minor league starts with a 7.11 ERA. He won't be a streaming option against the first-place Giants.
Jul 16 - 6:49 PM

Padres signed RHP Edwin Jackson to a minor league contract.

Jackson was released by the Marlins earlier this month. The Cubs, who Jackson played for in 2015, are still paying most of his salary with the Padres picking up only a prorated portion of it once he reaches the major leagues. The Padres will be Jackson's 11th team in 14 seasons. The journeyman will likely be used as a long reliever if he gets called up. He'll report to Triple-A El Paso for now.
Jun 16 - 6:13 PM

Marlins released RHP Edwin Jackson.

He was designated for assignment on Tuesday. Jackson had a productive year for the Braves and Cubs last season (3.07 ERA in 47 relief appearances) but never got much going in his brief stint with Miami (5.91 ERA in eight games). The 32-year-old has pitched for 10 teams over 14 major league seasons.
Jun 2 - 10:14 PM

Marlins designated RHP Edwin Jackson for assignment.

The move clears a spot for Mike Dunn on the active roster. Jackson gets the boot after giving over six runs over his last two appearances.
May 31 - 3:05 PM

Marlins activated RHP Edwin Jackson from the 15-day disabled list.

Jackson has missed the last month with a strained triceps. He'll return to a middle relief role.
May 20 - 3:16 PM

Marlins placed RHP Edwin Jackson on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 18, with a right triceps strain.

Nick Wittgren will take his spot in the Marlins' bullpen. Jackson had allowed one run in 3 2/3 innings over his first four appearances this season. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined.
Apr 19 - 3:21 PM

Edwin Jackson was tagged for five runs and eight hits in two innings Monday against the Nationals.

Jackson is on a major league deal, so he's being penciled into the Marlins' bullpen to begin the year. Still, that doesn't mean he can struggle all spring and still expect to have a roster spot. He allowed eight of the nine hits Marlins pitchers gave up in the game.
Mar 7 - 4:29 PM

Edwin Jackson still sees himself as a starting pitcher.

Jackson pitched exclusively out of the bullpen last year with the Cubs and Braves but that wasn't by choice. "I still look at myself as a starter," said Jackson. "There’s still something I want to prove to myself, not to anyone else." Jackson will compete with left-handers Adam Conley and Justin Nicolino for the last spot in Miami's starting rotation this spring.

Marlins signed RHP Edwin Jackson to a one-year contract.

Jackson is still being paid by the Cubs, so the Marlins were able to sign him at the major league minimum. The veteran right-hander had some good results after a move to the bullpen last season, posting a 3.07 ERA and 40/21 K/BB ratio over 55 2/3 innings. He'll presumably continue to pitch in that capacity with Miami.
Jan 13 - 10:07 AM

Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports that the Marlins have agreed to a one-year, $507,500 contract with Edwin Jackson.

The 32-year-old hurler transitioned to the bullpen in 2015, posting a 3.07 ERA in 55 2/3 innings with the Braves and Cubs. As a low-cost signing, he makes for a nice addition to the Marlins bullpen.
Jan 9 - 1:52 PM's Joe Frisaro reports that the Marlins are closing in on a contract agreement with Edwin Jackson.

Jackson made the full transition into a reliever last season and posted a decent 3.07 ERA in 55 2/3 innings between the Cubs and Braves. Control is still an issue, though, and this is likely to be a one-year deal with the Miami. Jackson, 32, had a brutal 6.33 ERA in 140 2/3 innings for the Cubs in 2014.
Jan 4 - 2:47 PM

Braves signed RHP Edwin Jackson to a one-year contract.

Jackson was a massive bust after signing a four-year, $52 million contract with the Cubs and was released last month. Chicago ate the roughly $15 million that they still owed him and the Braves are responsible only for a prorate portion of the veteran minimum. He'll pitch out of Atlanta's bullpen.
