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. Jacob Turner is already part of the bullpen and took over for Tsuyoshi Wada when Tuesday’s game resumed in the bottom of the fifth inning Thursday.

Giants thump Cubs, 8-3

On the whole, I preferred the experience of this game to last night's. The formerly okay Edwin Jackson took the mound, and the onscreen graphics proclaimed him terrible. Say, thought the professional baseball writer, what happened to that guy? /thwack I should look his season up on Baseball-Reference.com and see what's going on. /thwack thwack Wow. 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.

Jackson's struggles continue in Cubs' loss

CHICAGO – Cubs starter Edwin Jackson said he was thinking about things he shouldn't have been during Chicago's 6-2 loss Thursday to the Milwaukee Brewers.

Jackson's starting job looks to be in jeopardy

CHICAGO -- Chicago Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson says he’s not concerned with losing his starting job in the final weeks of the season because it’s not something he can control. He’s only half right. He doesn’t make the decisions, but if he was pitching better it certainly wouldn’t be on the table. “I know I’m a way better pitcher than I’ve been showing,” Jackson said after giving up five runs in a 6-2 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday.

Edwin Jackson picks up his first victory since June 20

LOS ANGELES — As tough as the first 54 starts of his Cubs career have been, even Edwin Jackson won’t dismiss the possibility that a change of scenery could benefit him. “It could,” he said, before quickly adding, “but maybe not. “The only thing you can do is keep throwing, having confidence in yourself and believe in what you know you can do,” he said. “You know if you feel good. Results might not be there. You just have to ­believe things can...

Game 112 Thread: August 3 vs. Cubs, 1p

Josh Beckett (6-5, 2.74) vs. Edwin Jakcson (5-11, 5.79). Edwin Jackson was a 19-year old Dodger prospect in 2003; he lasted three seasons with the Dodgers and posted a 6-4 record with a 5.50 ERA and a 75 ERA+. It wasn't until 2009, two stops later, when Jackson made an All-Star Game; he's languished overall with a career 4.57 ERA / 92 ERA+. With the Cubs the last two seasons, he's worse: 13-29 with a 5.31 ERA and a 73 ERA+. Still, given the issues with four and five in our rotation, including #4 starter Josh Beckett this afternoon, might we be singing "I Want You Back" to Jackson? If...

Cubs need to let Jackson stretch it out

CHICAGO -- If the Chicago Cubs want to protect their young relievers -- a topic lately around Wrigley Field -- then why aren't they letting a pitcher like Edwin Jackson stay in games longer? If they're going to start the struggling pitcher in the first place how about letting him earn his paycheck by eating up some more innings? "It's been a tough stretch for me lately," Jackson said after his short, four-inning stint on Tuesday against the Colorado Rockies.
