Journeyman Edwin Jackson is providing stability in Washington Nationals’ rotation

Journeyman Edwin Jackson is providing stability in Washington Nationals’ rotation

Edwin Jackson has proven to be a valuable pick-up for the Nationals. Washington Nationals pitcher Edwin Jackson is the ideal journeyman in the MLB. The 33-year-old right hander has pitched for 12 different teams in 15 seasons. For each of the teams Jackson has pitched for, he has displayed inconsistency on the mound as he sports a 4.36 career ERA. Jackson, who helped the Nationals win a division title in 2012, has played for six teams since 2015. He was signed by the Baltimore Orioles back in April and played for their Triple-A team before making three appearances out of the bullpen....

Edwin Jackson put together an impressive, efficient start for the Washington Nationals in what ended up a 2-1 win over the San Diego Padres in Petco Park.

He finds a way to keep us in the ballgame. And it looked like he’s gaining more and more confidence...” - Dusty Baker on Edwin...

Today in Blue Jays History: Colby Ramus Trade

6 years ago today: The Jays traded for Colby Rasmus. Actually, it was a trade in two acts. Act One: The Jays traded veteran reliever Jason Frasor and prospect Zach Stewart to the White Sox, for pitcher Edwin Jackson and almost Canadian Mark Teahen (his father had been born in Ontario and Teahan played for Canada in the 2009 WBC. Teahan would finish out the season with the Jays. He hit .190/.261/.286 in 27 games and that would be the end of his MLB career. Frasor would find his way back to the Blue Jays, for the 2012 season.

Edwin Jackson will start again for Nationals: “He’s not on a pitch-by-pitch, performance-type thing.” - Dusty Baker

Edwin Jackson struggled in his outing against the Brewers, but he’ll start again, and he’s not on a start-by-start, or pitch-by-pitch type thing according to Dusty Baker. Edwin Jackson signed with Baltimore in early April, started at Triple-A in the Orioles’ organization, and then worked his way up for three appearances out of the O’s bullpen in June, but the 33-year-old right-hander was designated for assignment after that. “We saw this guy perform for us in Triple-A and he forced us to bring him to the big leagues by his performance...” - Mike Rizzo on Edwin Jackson He opted...
