Orioles signed RHP Edwin Jackson to a minor league contract.
Per Eduardo A. Encina of the Baltimore Sun, Jackson's deal will include a June 1 opt-out clause. Assuming he passes his physical, he will report to extended spring training on Thursday. The veteran right-hander split his 2016 season between the Marlins and Padres. He struggled on the whole, posting a 5.89 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 61/41 K/BB ratio in 84 innings. With the Orioles, he will serve as organizational depth, but could see major league time as the season progresses. Even if he does work his way into the mix with the O's, there is no fantasy intrigue here. Apr 5 - 8:59 PM

Ben Nicholson-Smith of reports that the Blue Jays have had "preliminary talks" regarding Edwin Jackson.

The Blue Jays are looking to pad out their starting rotation depth and are reportedly deep in negotiations with Mat Latos, but Jackson is another potential option on that front. Both pitchers are looking to rebound in 2017. Splitting time between the Marlins and Padres this past season, the veteran right-hander Jackson struggled to the tune of a 5.89 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 61/41 K/BB ratio across 84 innings.
Feb 15 - 6:48 PM

Edwin Jackson was tagged for five runs in six innings Friday in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

Jackson turned in some nice outings for the Padres, but the end result was still a 5.89 ERA in 13 starts. He'll have to settle for a minor league contract as a free agent this winter.

Edwin Jackson beat the Giants on Friday after allowing two runs in six innings.

The Giants struggled to get to Jackson even though he walked five batters. It was a carbon copy of Jackson's first start for the Padres on July 17, when he allowed two earned runs in 6 1/3 innings in defeating the Giants. He walked five in that one, too. Jackson is 5-5 with a 5.75 ERA in 12 starts for the Padres.

Edwin Jackson was obliterated by the Rockies on Saturday, coughing up eight runs in 4 1/3 innings in a loss at Coors Field.

He served up three gopherballs and a run-scoring triple among 10 total hits. It got ugly fast in this one. Nolan Arenado and Tom Murphy both hit two-run homers in the first inning. Murphy took him deep again in the fifth -- this time for a three-run bomb. Jackson's ERA leaps from a bad 5.32 to an awful 6.00 after the beatdown. He will face the Giants and Diamondbacks in his last two starts of the season -- and those could be the last starts of his 14 year career.

Edwin Jackson pitched well in a no-decision against the Rockies on Sunday, allowing just two runs on five hits over his six frames.

Jackson walked one and struck out four on the afternoon. Charlie Blackmon was his nemesis in this one, belting a solo homer in the fourth inning and delivering an RBI single in the fifth. Even with two terrific outings this week, Jackson owns a troublesome 5.32 ERA and 1.54 WHIP on the season. He should be avoided for fantasy purposes when he takes on the Rockies in Colorado on Saturday.

Edwin Jackson fanned 11 while shutting out the Red Sox for seven innings in a victory Monday.

Yes, the Edwin Jackson. He allowed four hits and walked two in taking down the game's best offense. Jackson entered with a 6.34 ERA and a 25/23 K/BB ratio in eight starts for the Padres, so if you saw this one coming, give yourself a couple of pats on the back. He'll get the Rockies next.

Edwin Jackson lasted just 2 2/3 innings Tuesday, yielding five runs in a loss to the Braves.

It was ugly from the get-go for Jackson, who permitted seven hits and three walks without recording a strikeout. The veteran right-hander has mixed in a couple nice outings for the Padres, but he's now struggled his last three times out and it's probably time to give someone else a look.

Edwin Jackson lost to the Cubs after giving up five runs in five innings on Monday.

Jackson is still getting paid by the Cubs, so it just wouldn't have been fair for him to go out and beat them tonight. At least, that's what he can tell himself. He's 3-4 with a 5.71 ERA.
Tue, Aug 23, 2016 01:45:00 AM

Edwin Jackson was knocked around for nine hits and eight runs over four innings in a loss to the Rays on Tuesday.

That's the Edwin Jackson we've been expecting. The right-hander had actually been pretty good in five starts since being acquired by the Padres from the Marlins in mid-July, but this is a guy who hadn't started since 2014, when he posted a 6.33 ERA. Jackson now owns a 5.36 ERA and 1.51 WHIP in 47 innings this year. His next start will come Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

Edwin Jackson hurled seven scoreless innings at the Pirates on Wednesday, allowing only two hits while striking out seven as the Padres won 4-0.

Where did this come from? He lowered his ERA from 5.00 down to 4.19 in 43 innings this season. The strikeouts were out of character as he entered the game with a 5.00 K/9 strikeout rate. Jackson will look to build on this promising effort when he squares off against the Rays on Monday in the first of two starts next week.

Edwin Jackson allowed three runs on eight hits over eight innings Wednesday in a win against the Brewers.

Jackson struck out five without walking a batter on the afternoon. He held the Brew Crew off the scoreboard completely until the eighth inning, when Scooter Gennett notched an RBI single and Ryan Braun cracked a two-run home run. Despite this fine work, Jackson still holds a disappointing 5.00 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over 36 innings between the Padres and Marlins (who released him on June 2). A road showdown with the Pirates shows next on his schedule.
Wed, Aug 3, 2016 07:21:00 PM

Edwin Jackson was hammered for six earned runs in five innings in a loss to the Reds on Friday.

He gave up four runs in the first inning and two more in the fifth. He managed to keep the ball in the ballpark but was peppered for 10 base hits and two walks. His ERA climbs to 5.46 in 28 innings split between the Marlins and Padres. He has more walks (16) than strikeouts (15) on the year.

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.
