Cubs | GM sticking by Edwin Jackson

Fri, 15 Aug 2014 15:40:33 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Edwin Jackson will be given a chance to get on track, according to general manager Jed Hoyer. Hoyer noted Jackson was having an issue with the location of his pitches, not the pitches themselves.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson will have to string together a few solid starts before he earns fantasy relevance.

Cubs | Edwin Jackson's role in jeopardy?

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 16:02:41 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Edwin Jackson did not receive a heart-warming endorsement from manager Rick Renteria Thursday, Aug. 14, when Renteria was asked if Jackson would remain in the starting rotation. The Cubs are recalling SP Dan Straily to pitch Saturday, Aug. 16, and recently-acquired SP Jacob Turner threw 2 1/3 scoreless innings in relief of Jackson Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: The Cubs have options, especially now that they recalled Straily. Jackson has the worst ERA of any pitcher qualified for the ERA title, making him unworthy of a roster spot in all formats. If Straily or Turner were to take Jackson's spot in the rotation, either would be worth a speculative add in NL-only formats and potentially in some deep mixed leagues.

Cubs | Edwin Jackson throws only fastballs in outing

Sat, 08 Mar 2014 21:25:18 -0800

Chicago Cubs SP Edwin Jackson made 50 pitches in his Cactus League outing Friday, March 7, and he decided to only throw fastballs. He apparently did not tell manager Rick Renteria or pitching coach Chris Bosio of his intentions, and the two planned to sit down with him to discuss. "I think maybe, as we talk about fastball command, maybe he was thinking, 'I'm going to try to hit the spots," Renteria said. "He got into a little trouble yesterday and he had some elevated pitches and some pulled pitches."
