Cubs place sore Edwin Jackson on DL

It might have looked like adding injury to insult when the Cubs placed struggling, $52 million pitcher Edwin Jackson on the disabled list Thursday with a lat strain. But Jackson remains confident he can return stronger and better from soreness that has plagued him for weeks until finally admitting the issue to the medical staff Wednesday night. While fans on Twitter reacted with apparently bitter satisfaction over Jackson’s departure from the rotation under any...

DL trip muddies Jackson's Cubs future

CHICAGO – In a move that came as a bit of a surprise, the Chicago Cubs placed pitcher Edwin Jackson on the 15-day disabled list Thursday with a right lat strain. With Jackson’s struggles well-documented and the Cubs searching for innings for numerous pitchers, the DL stint, while certainly unfortunate, does give the Cubs a chance look at some of their younger arms.

Wonder if this is going to be one of those Brandon Backe situations, in which a bad pitcher suddenly finds himself cured against a struggling lineup. /thwack walk thwack No, Virginia, Edwin Jackson isn't good. I don't know what happened to him....

Jackson's starting role coming to a close?

CHICAGO -- The end of the line might be in sight for Chicago Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson's hopes of remaining a starter after his latest performance. He lasted only 2 2/3 innings against the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday night, giving up seven runs in an 8-3 loss. "No one wants to be moved," Jackson said about a possible new role in the bullpen. "The only thing you can do if you don't like it is go out there and pitch out of jams. I have to get back to having fun.
