Description: Cubs starter Edwin Jackson won just his second game of the season Sunday versus Pittsburgh.
Insight: Jackson is 2-8 with a 5.76 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP, even after holding the Pirates to one run on four hits in seven innings Sunday. The right-hander is a buy-low candidate, however, as he has a 3.39 FIP and a 3.58 xFIP.

Description: Cubs starter Edwin Jackson allowed four runs on six hits in three innings Thursday afternoon at Pittsburgh.
Insight: Jackson is now 1-7 with a 6.11 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP. However, his 3.66 FIP suggests he has outpitched his actual numbers. The right-hander came into his start Thursday having allowed just a 15.1 percent line-drive rate with men on base but stranded 57.8 percent of baserunners. After Thursday's game, his strand rate is down to 56.4 percent.

Description: Edwin Jackson's streak of eight starts in a row without a victory ended Saturday against Washington.
Insight: Jackson allowed two runs in 5 1/3 IP. Only three pitchers in the National League have produced a higher ERA than Jackson this season (6.02). He hasn't been a helpful fantasy contributor since 2011 (3.79 ERA in 32 games).

Description: Cubs starter Edwin Jackson allowed five runs on four hits in six innings Saturday against the Brewers, but just one of the runs was earned and Jackson walked only one batter.
Insight: The Cubs' defense made two errors in the bottom of the fifth, leading to three unearned runs, and Jackson made an error in the bottom of the sixth that led to another unearned run. Otherwise, it was the right-handers best outing of the season. He walked 10 batters in 16 1/3 innings over his first three starts, but he has 24 strikeouts in 22 1/3 innings this year and is a solid buy-low candidate.

Description: Nationals starter Edwin Jackson allowed eight earned on seven hits in 1 1/3 innings Friday against the Cardinals and watched his ERA rise from 3.77 to 4.13.

Description: Nationals starter Edwin Jackson dominated the Cardinals over eight innings Thursday to end a two-start losing streak.
Insight: Jackson (8-9, 3.53 ERA, 1.16 WHIP) allowed just five earned on nine hits and recorded a 19/3 K/BB in 13 innings over his last two starts, but he took a loss in both of them. Thursday, he allowed one unearned run on four hits and struck out 10. This has easily been Jackson's best all-around season in the big leagues.

7/16/2012 11:27:00 PM
Description: Nationals starter Edwin Jackson has slipped up in his last three starts, allowing 16 earned runs on 21 hits in 13 2/3 innings. The right-hander dropped to 5-5 Monday after lasting just five innings against Miami.

Description: Nationals starter Edwin Jackson improved to 2-0 for the month with the win Monday night against the Blue Jays. He worked eight innings, allowing three hits and two runs. He walked three and struck out three.
Insight: Jackson might not get as much attention as Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez or Jordan Zimmerman but he's been just as productive so far in 2012. He hasn't received much run support so his win total is low (this was just his third win of the year) but Jackson's ERA is 3.02 and opponents are hitting only .202 against him.
6/6/2012 10:15:00 PM
Description: Nationals starter Edwin Jackson held the Mets to three runs (two earned) on three hits while walking four and striking out six Wednesday to earn his second victory of the season.
Insight: Jackson (2-3, 3.11 ERA, 1.02 WHIP) has been one of the worst supported pitchers in baseball this year. Wednesday was his first win since he threw a complete game on April 14 against Cincinnati.

Description: Nationals starter Edwin Jackson dropped to 1-3 on Tuesday despite holding Miami to two runs (one earned) on five hits in 6 2/3 innings.

4/14/2012 7:08:00 PM
Description: Edwin Jackson threw a complete game two-hitter against the Reds on Saturday. Jackson gave up a run and struck out nine.
Insight: Jackson has already proven that he has no-hit stuff. The question has always been whether he can harness it for a full season. Now with his seventh team in 10 seasons, don't count on Jackson suddenly becoming a shut-down ace for 30-plus starts.
4/18/2011 7:45:00 PM
Description: White Sox SP Edwin Jackson allowed 4 runs in 7 innings against Tampa Bay. The Rays had 11 hits off of Jackson, including a home run; he walked 3 and struck out 1.
Insight: This is the second start in a row where E-Jax has pitched poorly and the White Sox are scuffling as a team right now. He should right the ship soon so keep him active for his next few starts.
4/7/2011 8:04:00 PM
Description: Edwin Jackson struck out 13 Rays in Thursday's win, going eight innings.

Description: Edwin Jackson held the Red Sox to four runs (three earned) on seven hits over seven innings Tuesday, but he did not factor into the decision.
Insight: Jackson has pitched well in his last 10 starts with an ERA of 3.25. He is capable of pitching that way for a whole season, so he may be worth taking a look at next season in the early rounds.
