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.

Padres GM A.J. Preller cited Jackson and Paul Clemens as options for their rotation following the Drew Pomeranz trade.

EDGE Analysis

That rotation vacancy could get first filled as early as Sunday. Jackson doesn't inspire much confidence, even if he lands in Petco. Since signing with the Padres, he's started three games at Triple-A El Paso, posting a 7.11 ERA over 12.2 innings.

Jackson was signed by the Padres on Thursday, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson was granted his unconditional release by the Marlins on June 6 after appearing in eight games for the club. During 10.2 innings of work in 2016, he gave up seven earned runs and 13 hits while striking out seven and allowing opposing batters to hit .317 off him. Jackson will provide organizational depth for the Padres but will need to regain his form in order to be a useful acquisition at the major league level.

Jackson was granted his unconditional release Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran was DFA'd earlier in the week, and he'll now try his luck as a free agent, rather than accepting an assignment to Triple-A. Jackson appeared in eight games for the Marlins out of the bullpen, scattering 13 hits ans seven earned runs across 10.2 cumulative innings.

Jackson was designated for assignment Tuesday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson's move was the result of Mike Dunn returning from the disabled list Tuesday. If Jackson passes through waivers unclaimed, he will likely end up at Triple-A New Orleans. While he was a member of the Marlins this season, Jackson posted a 5.91 ERA during 10.2 innings out of the bullpen.

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

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.

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.
