Jackson to the bullpen for final week

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs will start three rookies in their season finale series with the Milwaukee Brewers as veteran Edwin Jackson has been relegated to the bullpen for the final days of the year.

Eric Jokisch, Tsuyoshi Wada and Kyle Hendricks will start games Friday through Sunday in Milwaukee. Jackson's final three starts going back to before an injury sidelined him consisted of eight innings pitched, giving up 17 earned runs.

Edwin Jackson gets only 2 outs as Dodgers rout Cubs

Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw took the mound with a six-run head start Friday. That’s because Cubs right-hander Edwin Jackson, making his first start since Aug.  20, was in familiar form.

Jackson's fate was sealed before meltdown

It wouldn’t be a shock, by any means, if Jackson pitched his last game in a Cubs uniform Friday in their 14-5 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers -- though right now he's scheduled for one more start this season. The lasting memory for him could be not getting out of the first inning as he gave up five runs on four hits and a walk.

In Kershaw, Cubs' Jackson facing the best as he returns to the mound

CHICAGO – It’s a matchup the Las Vegas oddsmakers probably haven't seen a lot of action on.
