Jackson has thrown three scoreless innings since returning from the disabled list on May 20.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After some years of being a middling starter, Jackson has come to his own this season as a reliever for the Marlins. The 32-year-old holds a 1.35 ERA through 6.2 innings pitched, although his 1.65 WHIP leaves something to be desired. Positives aside, it seems he's getting fairly lucky, as his 4.10 FIP would suggest. Jackson likely won't be able to keep this strong start up, so enjoy it while it lasts.

The Marlins are expected to activate Jackson (triceps) from the disabled list Friday, MLB.com's Joe Frisaro reports. "We feel like he's probably ready now," manager Don Mattingly said Tuesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Jackson has made his second rehab appearance Wednesday with High-A Jupiter, and has given up three runs on five hits and a walk over four innings during his brief stint with the club. While those results aren't especially encouraging, Jackson apparently hasn't experienced any notable setbacks in his recovery, so the Marlins may be willing to overlook his uninspiring rehab appearances. Jackson is expected to serve in long relief upon joining the Marlins.

Jackson was placed on the 15-day DL on Tuesday with a right triceps strain, Andre Fernandez of the Miami Herald reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Jackson was off to a solid start before suffering the injury, posting a 2.45 ERA in four appearances out of the bullpen. He will likely spend some time rehabbing the injury in the minor leagues before returning to the Marlins.

Jackson tossed a pair of scoreless inning in relief during Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He struck out two without allowing a baserunner while needing just 10 pitches (all strikes) to get through the two innings. Jackson continues to appear in spring games every fifth day, but he has yet to start a game or toss more than three innings, and the 10-pitch outing Tuesday would seem to indicate that he's headed towards a bullpen role when the team breaks camp. Adam Conley and Jared Cosart remain in the lead to capture the Marlins' final two rotation spots.

Jackson tossed three scoreless innings Thursday against the Mets, allowing one hit and a pair of walks. Despite the successful appearance, his role for the regular season remains uncertain, MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Jackson has made just two official Grapefruit League appearances, one scoreless outing and one five-run disaster. He's been working regularly with the Marlins' coaching staff on the back fields, however, and the team has been happy with the work he's putting in out of the spotlight. Jackson is competing for one of the final two spots in Miami's Opening Day rotation, but would be a favorite to land a spot in the bullpen if he fails to break camp as a starter.

Jackson will enter camp as a favorite to land one of the final two spots in Miami's rotation, the Miami Herald reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Despite pitching exclusively out of the bullpen in 2015 (3.07 ERA and 1.17 WHIP with Atlanta and Chicago) , the Marlins plan on giving the veteran right-hander a chance to work his way into the rotation during spring training. He'll be competing with veterans Jarred Cosart, David Phelps and Brad Hand as well as youngsters Adam Conley and Justin Nicolino for the chance to start every fifth day. Jackson, Hand and Phelps all have experience working in relief should they fail to crack the starting five.

Jackson signed with the Marlins on Saturday, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The veteran right-hander will join the Marlins on a bargain deal worth $507.5K according to Heyman. Jackson spent last season with the Cubs and Braves serving in a relief role and compiling a 3.07 ERA over 55.2 innings of work.

Jackson (3-3) earned the victory on Saturday, completing one inning of hitless relief and striking out a batter in a 2-1 victory over the Phillies.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Jackson turned in his second consecutive scoreless effort after surrendering runs in three consecutive appearances prior. He also faced the minimum number of batters for the second outing in September, and posted a strikeout for the third consecutive contest. The veteran reliever has turned in generally solid work overall for both the Cubs and Braves in 2015, and his current 1.24 WHIP metric is a nice improvement from his career 1.45 figure in that category.

Jackson appears likely to start Wednesday against the Marlins, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Braves have not yet listed a probable starter for Wednesday, but the other leading candidate, Sugar Ray Marimon, came into Tuesday's game to replace Manny Banuelos. Jackson hasn't made a start this season, and hasn't thrown more than 29 pitches in an appearance with Atlanta, so he likely wouldn't be available for more than a few innings if he does indeed get the nod.
