Edwin Jackson was obliterated in Friday's loss to the Dodgers, surrendering seven runs on six hits in his 2 1/3 innings of work.
Jackson walked two and struck out two in the abbreviated outing. The Dodgers jumped on him early in this one, with Justin Turner launching a solo homer in the first inning. Yasiel Puig added a solo shot in the second and Corey Seager followed shortly after with a three-run blast. Jackson will look to get back on track when he brings a 4.96 ERA and 1.52 WHIP into Friday's start against the Mets in New York. Sep 15 - 10:18 PM

Edwin Jackson was touched up for five runs in 3 1/3 innings and was charged with a loss to the Phillies on Saturday.

He served up solo taters to Rhys Hoskins and Maikel Franco in the second inning, then ran into a wall in the fourth when he gave up three runs on three singles and two walks. The last run scored when a reliever walked in one of Jackson's runners. The veteran journeyman has been quite solid since joining the Nationals back in mid-July, although this was his second clunker in a row. He pitched three games for the Orioles in June. For the season he is 5-5 with a 4.14 ERA in 63 innings.
Sep 9 - 11:58 PM

Edwin Jackson surrendered five runs -- four earned -- over 5 2/3 innings Sunday in a loss to the Brewers.

Jackson served up homers to Brewers outfielder Domingo Santana in the second and fourth and the veteran right-hander got little help from the Washington offense in the Nationals' eventual 7-2 loss. Jackson stands 5-4 on the year with a 3.77 ERA and 1.36 WHIP. He's lined up to face the Phillies at home next.
Sep 3 - 5:07 PM

Edwin Jackson was charged with three runs -- two earned -- over six-plus innings in Tuesday’s 8-3 win over the Marlins.

Jackson was wild with four walks (although one of them was intentional), but he managed to put together another strong outing. He now has four straight quality starts and six in eight tries since arriving with the Nationals. The soon-to-be 34-year-old has obviously given the Nats more than they ever could’ve hoped for. He’ll try to keep it going Sunday in Milwaukee.
Aug 29 - 11:25 PM

Edwin Jackson pitched six innings of two-run ball Wednesday in a loss to the Astros.

Jackson has returned from oblivion to post a 2.93 ERA in seven starts for the Nationals. He hadn't even been an average big-league starter since 2012, when he went 10-11 with a 4.03 ERA for the Nationals and earned himself the ill-fated four-year, $52 million contract with the Cubs.
Aug 23 - 11:22 PM

Edwin Jackson surrendered one run on eight hits over seven innings in Thursday's win over the Padres.

Jackson has been surprisingly reliable in six starts this season, having allowed two or fewer runs in five of them. In Thursday's contest, the well-traveled veteran kept the scoreboard clean outside of a third-inning RBI single by Jose Pirela. He struck out four and walked one over his seven innings of work. Jackson will bring a sharp 2.92 ERA and 1.11 WHIP as a National into a road outing against the Astros next time he toes the rubber.
Aug 18 - 1:18 AM

Edwin Jackson gave up just one run in six innings to earn a 3-1 win over the Giants on Saturday.

He struck out five batters, walked one and surrendered five base hits, including a solo home run by second baseman Joe Panik in the first inning. Jackson was released by the Orioles after making three relief appearances early in the season. He signed with the Nationals, spent time in the minor leagues and is now back in the majors having success as a starter with one of the best teams in baseball. He has a 3-2 record with a 3.86 ERA in 35 innings total. His next start will come in a tasty matchup on the road versus the Padres on Thursday.
Aug 13 - 2:02 AM

Friday's game between the Giants and Nationals was postponed due to rain.

No word yet on a date to reschedule. It's also unclear if Friday's scheduled starters will get pushed back to work on Saturday or if their respective clubs will simply skip them this turn through the rotation.
Aug 11 - 9:44 PM

Edwin Jackson yielded four earned runs over five innings Saturday in a loss to the Cubs.

Jackson struck out eight batters and issued zero walks, but the Cubs got to him for six hits -- three of the extra-base variety. The veteran right-hander stands 2-2 on the season with a 4.34 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, and 22/9 K/BB ratio in four starts and three relief appearances covering 29 innings. He's lined up to face the Giants at home next.
Aug 5 - 6:03 PM

Edwin Jackson turned back the clock on Sunday, punching out six over seven innings of one-run ball in a dominant victory over the Rockies.

Jackson scattered four hits and a pair of walks on the night. The only damage against him came on an RBI single from Gerardo Parra in the fifth inning. The veteran right-hander has actually pitched well since joining the Nationals' rotation and will carry a 3.75 ERA and 1.42 WHIP into his next start against the Marlins.
Jul 30 - 10:18 PM

Edwin Jackson was charged with seven runs – three earned – over five innings of work and served up three homers in Tuesday’s loss to the Brewers.

A throwing error by Ryan Zimmerman in the fourth inning helped open the door to four runs, which makes Jackson’s ERA look not quite as bad but certainly doesn’t change the fact that he didn’t pitch well. He did hold his own in his first outing with the Nationals and might get another start, but they’ll boot him from the rotation as soon as they fine a replacement.
Jul 25 - 11:04 PM

Edwin Jackson did not disappoint in his return to the Nationals on Tuesday, allowing just two runs and three hits over seven innings in a win over the Angels.

Jackson was shaky in three relief appearances for the Orioles earlier this season, but the veteran did a good job filling in for Joe Ross (elbow) in this one. Despite the quality start on Tuesday night at Anaheim, Jackson probably won't be worth using in most fantasy leagues down the stretch.
Jul 19 - 5:14 AM

Nationals purchased the contract of RHP Edwin Jackson from Triple-A Syracuse.

Jackson was lit up over three appearances earlier this season with the Orioles, but he posted a 0.44 ERA over 20 1/3 innings after catching on with the Nats on a minor league deal. He'll start Tuesday against the Angels and can obviously be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Jul 18 - 2:29 PM

Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports that Edwin Jackson will be called up to start Tuesday in place of Joe Ross (elbow).

Jackson has an August 1 opt-out on his minor league contract, so the Nationals will give him a look rather than risk losing him. The 33-year-old has posted a 0.44 ERA over 20 1/3 innings at Triple-A Syracuse, but he was rocked in three appearances earlier this season with the Orioles. Jackson could stick around for additional starts if he pitches well, but the leash will obviously be short.
Jul 16 - 12:44 PM

Nationals signed RHP Edwin Jackson to a minor league contract; assigned him to Triple-A Syracuse.

Jackson was released by the Orioles earlier this week after allowing seven runs -- four earned -- over five innings (three appearances) out of the Baltimore bullpen. He'll now function as long-relief depth for Washington.
