According to Gordon Wittenmeyer of the Chicago Sun-Times, the Yankees could be interested in acquiring Edwin Jackson.

While Jackson is still owed roughly $26 million through the end of the 2016 season, the Yankees are desperate for rotation help and could certainly use another arm that's capable of eating innings. He owns a 5.61 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 100/49 K/BB ratio over 110 2/3 innings on the year.

Edwin Jackson was shelled for nine earned runs in 3 2/3 innings Saturday as the Cubs lost to the Braves.

E-Jax was dreadful, yielding seven hits -- including three home runs -- while walking four Atlanta hitters. He's now by far the highest-paid player on the Cubs and simply hasn't lived up to his $11 million salary, now with a 5.64 ERA and 1.58 WHIP on the season.

Edwin Jackson got a no-decision, allowing one run over six innings in Tuesday's win over the Red Sox.

Jackson was actually quite lucky to only give up the one run, as he allowed six hits and walked four while only striking out three. The Cubs weren't able to give him any run support in his quest for his sixth win. Jackson did get his ERA under 5.00, though, as it's now at 4.99 along with a 1.53 WHIP and a 88/43 K/BB ratio. He'll face the Reds on the road in his next start.

Edwin Jackson fell to 5-8, allowing four runs over 5 1/3 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Reds.

Jackson held the Reds to one run over his first five innings, but he relented in the sixth, allowing a walk, a single, and two doubles in a three-run inning. Overall, Jackson yielded six hits while walking four and striking out two. The inconsistent right-hander will take the hill in next week's road start against the Red Sox with a 5.22 ERA, a 1.52 WHIP, and an 85/39 K/BB ratio.

Edwin Jackson allowed three runs in five innings Friday in a win over the Pirates.

His only mistake was a three-run homer to Jordy Mercer in the fifth inning. Jackson struck out eight and walked two en route to improving to 5-7 on the year. He'll bring a 5.12 ERA into a start against the Reds next week at home and remains an inconsistent option in fantasy leagues.

Edwin Jackson improved to 4-5, allowing four runs (one earned) in five innings as the Cubs defeated the Mets 5-4 on Wednesday.

Jackson settled down after a shaky first inning in which he allowed three unearned runs thanks to shortstop Starlin Castro's fielding error. The right-hander allowed five hits -- including a solo home run to Ruben Tejada -- while walking five and striking out four. Jackson has not been very reliable out of the rotation for the Cubs thus far. He'll take a 4.59 ERA and 1.46 WHIP into his next start against the Pirates on the road.

Edwin Jackson struck out nine while allowing two runs over 5 1/3 innings on Wednesday, taking the loss against the Giants.

Jackson was clean until the sixth inning, when both his baserunners were allowed to score after he was removed from the game. In all, he gave up just four hits and two walks on the afternoon. Unfortunately for him, the Cubs didn't muster a hit off the Giants until the seventh inning, saddling him with his fifth loss. He'll take a 4.81 ERA and 1.41 WHIP into next Wednesday's contest with the Mets.

Edwin Jackson was pummeled for eight runs in four innings by the Padres in Petco on Friday.

This is why it's pretty much impossible to count on Jackson. He was coming off his third straight quality start, a gem in which he fanned 11 Brewers over seven scoreless innings, and then he unleashes this in the most favorable matchup a starting pitcher can have. The two homers he gave up tonight matched his total from his previous nine starts combined. Next up for Jackson is the Giants. He'll almost certainly be really good, really awful or somewhere in between.

Edwin Jackson absolutely dominated the Brewers on Saturday, striking out 11 over seven shutout innings to earn his third victory of the season.

Jackson allowed just four hits and one walk in the impressive outing. Every once in awhile he puts it all together and has an outing like this, but is still far too inconsistent to trust in mixed leagues on a regular basis. He'll bring a 3.98 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 49/20 K/BB ratio into Friday's start against the Padres in San Diego.

Edwin Jackson allowed three runs on six hits over six innings in a loss to the Braves on Sunday.

Jackson walked two and struck out three in the outing. He also served up a solo home run to Evan Gattis that turned out to be the deciding run, just his second home run allowed in 47 1/3 innings this season. The right-hander owns a 4.56 ERA and 1.44 WHIP through eight starts. He'll next take the hill Friday against the Brewers.
