News: Jackson picked up his first win of the season Saturday, holding the Reds to two runs on eight hits and two walks over 5.2 innings. Impact: Jackson struck out five and kept the ball in the park, but he allowed at least one base runner in every frame, and finally caved in the sixth inning. No matter, he'll happily take the win, after struggling through his first three starts. Jackson's next outing is scheduled for Thursday against the Diamondbacks at Wrigley Field, with little-known Mike Bolsinger slated to start for the opponent.(RotoWire, )

News: Jackson took the loss Sunday against the Cardinals, allowing four runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out five over six innings of work. Impact: Jackson needed 114 pitches to get through six frames. He was lucky to only surrender four runs and will take an ugly 6.19 ERA into his next start.(RotoWire, )

News: Jackson did not get a decision Tuesday. Impact: Jackson was horrendous yet again, yielding six runs in 4 2-3 innings. His ERA soared to 6.30 and it would not be altogether surprising if he ended in that neighborhood this year.(STATS, 5:35pm)

News: Jackson had an abysmal night Tuesday, allowing six earned runs on nine hits and four walks with four strikeouts in 4.2 innings against the Pirates. Impact: Somehow, Jackson avoided getting credited with the loss, but this was a really messy outing. If you're looking for silver linings, four of the six runs were allowed in the first inning, so he "settled down" and only gave up two more over the next 3.2 innings. He also struck out four batters in less than five innings, which is better than his 6.93 K/9 from 2013. His next scheduled start doesn't look very promising, as he'll be pitching in St. Louis on Sunday.(RotoWire, )
