EDWIN JACKSON RUMORS

Cubs release RHP Edwin Jackson

CHICAGO (AP) The Cubs released right-hander Edwin Jackson on Monday, one week after he was designated for assignment. Jackson, 31, was 2-1 with a 3.19 ERA in 23 relief appearances for the Cubs this season. Signed to a four-year deal worth $52 million before the 2013 season, Jackson struggled badly over his first two years with the Cubs, going 14-33 with a 5.58 ERA and was moved...

Edwin Jackson Era is (Thankfully) Over

The Edwin Jackson era is over for the Chicago Cubs, to the delight of the fans. Theo Epstein’s biggest Cubs flop was designated for assignment on July 19th. This allowed the activation of RHP Rafael Soriano, who was signed by the Cubs organization earlier this year. Jackson’s Cubs career was nothing short of a disaster. He was signed to a 4-year, $52-million deal in 2013 after...

Cubs Call Up Rafael Soriano, DFA Edwin Jackson

In a move that has many Chicago Cubs fans saying “It’s about time”, former starting pitcher-turned rarely used bullpen arm Edwin Jackson has been designated for assignment by the club to make room for Rafael Soriano on the big league roster. Soriano, 35, hasn’t pitched in a Major League contest since the playoffs in 2014 for the Washington Nationals. He’s been putting in...

They Should Have Passed

The recent announcement that Edwin Jackson was DFAed finally ends the long saga of undoubtedly Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer’s worst acquisition for the Cubs. Jackson, signed to a 4-year/$52 million contract prior to the 2013 season, struggled mightily in 2013 and 2014 before being demoted to the bullpen. Overall, he finished with a 5.37 ERA in 347 innings with the Cubs. Yet Jackson...

Finally dumping Jackson shows Cubs making moves for the right reasons

Finally, the Chicago Cubs can take their eyes off the Edwin Jackson train wreck. Having long lost all trust of his manager, teammates and management, Jackson has finally been jettisoned.

Chicago Cubs: Edwin Jackson designated for assignment

Google Maps led to Edwin Jackson arriving late to stadium

Unfortunately, Jackson did not arrive to the stadium on time due to difficulty getting directions to Oakland’s spring training complex.

Chicago Cubs Refused to Trade Edwin Jackson

It was recently revealed by USA Today that the Chicago Cubs turned down a deal with the Atlanta Braves that would essentially trade Edwin Jackson for Braves OF B.J. Upton. Fans would do almost anything to ship Jackson out of town, but taking on Upton’s contract and strikeouts made it an irrational move for Cubs brass. Not only does Upton have more career strikeouts than hits,...

Chicago Cubs trade rumors: Edwin Jackson edition

Prior to the 2013 season the Chicago Cubs signed Edwin Jackson to a four-year, $52 million deal which seemed pretty reasonable for a guy that has thrown a no-hitter before and consistently takes the ball every fifth day. However, since making his debut for the Cubs, things have not gone according to plan. Up to this point Jackson has a record of 13-28 with a 5.23 ERA since putting...
