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. Sep 24 - 3:03 AM

Date:

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.
Sep 17 - 11:36 PM

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.
Sep 11 - 7:51 PM

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.
Sep 5 - 8:42 PM

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.
Aug 31 - 12:07 AM

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.
Aug 23 - 1:45 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.
Aug 16 - 11:13 PM

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.
Aug 10 - 10:34 PM

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.
Aug 3 - 7:21 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.
Jul 30 - 2:33 AM

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.
Jul 23 - 10:50 PM

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.
Jul 17 - 11:07 PM

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.
