Jackson (3-5) was roughed up again Tuesday, lasting just 2.2 innings while surrendering five runs on seven hits and three walks with no strikeouts. He took his third consecutive loss.

EDGE Analysis

Tuesday makes it three straight brutal starts for Jackson, who has allowed a whopping 18 earned runs in his last 11.2 innings pitched. The rough stretch has raised Jackson's ERA to 6.26 on the season and his WHIP to 1.68. On the bright side, Jackson was able to keep the ball in the yard Tuesday after serving up three long balls in his last start against the Cubs. With just a 32:29 K:BB ratio and the Padres in last place in the NL West, one wonders if the Padres won't give a young prospect a shot at starting in Jackson's place moving forward.

Jackson (3-4) allowed five runs on seven hits and four walks with two strikeouts over five innings in a loss Monday to the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson has lost three straight in brutal fashion after a promising start to his time in San Diego's rotation. He has now allowed 18 runs in just 14 innings his past three times out, with an ugly 12:10 K:BB in that span. The Cubs touched him up for three home runs Monday night, and that was his main problem his last time in the rotation in 2014 with the Cubs. That season, he surrendered 18 home runs in 140.2 innings (1.2 HR/9), a big factor in his awful 6.33 ERA.

Jackson (3-3) was crushed for eight runs on nine hits over four innings Tuesday against the Rays. He walked three and struck out three in the loss.

EDGE Analysis

Coming off his two best starts of the season, Jackson served up his worst performance of 2016 on Tuesday in Tampa. Since signing with the Padres on June 16, the 14-year veteran has made six starts. Four of those outings have been quality starts in which Jackson went 3-0 with a 2.31 ERA. The other two were ugly losses in which he posted a 14.00 ERA and 2.67 WHIP. The 32-year-old has proven he can be a valuable fantasy arm, but his inconsistency makes him a hard play regardless of the matchup.

Jackson (3-2) threw seven shutout innings, allowing just two hits while striking out seven and walking three in a 4-0 victory over the Pirates on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran right-hander faced just three batters above the minimum and with anyone on base, he either induced a ground out or recorded a strikeout. This was Jackson's fourth quality start in five outings with the Padres. He is now 3-2 with a 4.19 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 27 strikeouts in 43.0 innings this season. His next scheduled start is Monday against Tampa Bay.

Jackson (2-2) allowed three runs on eight hits over eight innings, struck out five and walked none in a 12-3 victory over the Brewers on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

San Diego was able to give Jackson a little bit of leeway because they had an 11-run lead, so just over 100 pitches, the Padres allowed Jackson to finish the eighth. He retired 21 of the first 26 batters he faced. Jackson is 2-1 with a 4.62 ERA over four starts since coming over from Miami in a trade. His next start will be Wednesday against Pittsburgh.

Jackson allowed six runs on 10 hits and two walks over five innings Friday night to get the loss against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson has had trouble missing bats in all three Padres starts. His three strikeouts Friday gave him eight in 17.1 innings in his three starts. When that many balls are in play, he's subject to the whims of positioning and the amount of hard contact allowed. The good news is that he's allowed just one homer in those three starts.

Jackson didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's loss to the Nationals, giving up two earned runs on six hits and three walks over six innings. He also recorded a strikeout.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran righty worked at least six innings for the second time in as many starts, and gave up just two earned runs once again. Jackson stayed away from the long ball altogether against a dangers Nationals lineup and was efficient, throwing only 87 pitches. He'll look to continue his solid Padres tenure when he takes on the Reds next Friday.

Jackson earned a win in his first start as a Padre Sunday, allowing three runs (two earned) with four strikeouts and five walks across 6.1 innings.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson allowed just one hit Sunday, but it happened to come on a three-run homer in the seventh inning after he allowed a runner to reach via his own throwing error, which was followed by a walk. The high number of free passes was a bit concerning, but Jackson actually still threw 58 percent of his pitches for strikes, and his shakiness could be partially attributed to having gone nearly two months since his last Major League start. With the Padres in need of pitching and still rumored to be shopping some of their starters, Jackson is likely to remain in the rotation as long as he can continue to grind out results.

Jackson has been officially recalled to make Sunday's start against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson didn't fare particularly well at Triple-A El Paso, allowing 10 earned runs over 12.2 innings in three starts with the affiliate, but the Padres are in desperate need of another starter. The 32-year-old will give it a go Sunday against a strong Giants lineup, but there's nothing to suggest he will pitch well enough to gain fantasy relevance moving forward.

Jackson will be called up to start Sunday against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Andy Green made it official, tabbing Edwin Jackson as the temporary replacement for Drew Pomeranz in the San Diego rotation. Paul Clemens is expected to join the rotation eventually but apparently the Padres don't think he's ready quite yet. Jackson has struggled in a starting role in the minors this season (7.11 ERA, 9:6 K:BB at Triple-A), and he had an ERA well north of 6.00 as a starter at the major league level in 2014. The Giants figure to a popular stack for those playing in daily games.
