Cubs | Edwin Jackson's role in jeopardy?

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 16:02:41 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Edwin Jackson did not receive a heart-warming endorsement from manager Rick Renteria Thursday, Aug. 14, when Renteria was asked if Jackson would remain in the starting rotation. The Cubs are recalling SP Dan Straily to pitch Saturday, Aug. 16, and recently-acquired SP Jacob Turner threw 2 1/3 scoreless innings in relief of Jackson Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: The Cubs have options, especially now that they recalled Straily. Jackson has the worst ERA of any pitcher qualified for the ERA title, making him unworthy of a roster spot in all formats. If Straily or Turner were to take Jackson's spot in the rotation, either would be worth a speculative add in NL-only formats and potentially in some deep mixed leagues.
