The Cubs signed 29-year old righty starting pitcher Edwin Jackson to a 4-year, $52 million dollar deal. Jackson has outstanding stuff and a lot of teams have thought they could mold him as a pitcher and have failed. Jackson has pitched in 10 games (all starts) so far this year for the Cubs and he is 1-7 with a 6.11 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP. Jackson has given up 61 hits and 22 walks while whiffing 52 batters in his first 53 innings so far this year, so he needs to tighten up his control a bit. Jackson has pitched better at home this year, where he is 1-3 with a 4.26 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP. Jackson’s deal is already looking like a HUGE mistake for the Cubs.
