Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jay Jackson has pitched well enough this spring to be noticed by the coaching staff. "They got me just throwing naturally, getting my arm slot down to where it needs to be. Staying back more feels more comfortable. I'm keeping the ball down in the zone and getting outs, so it's a really good thing," Jackson said. However, Jackson isn't even a leading candidate to step into the rotation if SP Jeff Locke (oblique) isn't ready for the start of the regular season.
