EDWIN JACKSON KEEPS LANDING A GIG!
I was never a fan of Edwin Jackson, but since the beginning of his major league career which began in 2003, 9 teams have been. Well, now make it 10.
News broke that Jackson has signed yet another deal with a team, the Miami Marlins. UPI writes:
"Right-hander Edwin Jackson signed a one-year deal with the Miami Marlins. Jackson's salary is $13 million in 2016, but the Marlins will pay him only the league minimum of $507,500."
And I found this interesting... Fish Stripes writes:
"This is a low-upside move for the Marlins. Jackson has not been even an average pitcher since 2012 with the Washington Nationals, and he has never been fully considered an average or better performer in his career. His run from 2009 to 2012 was his best as a big-leaguer, and in that four-year span, he was only about five percent better than the league average in terms of run prevention. That is a decent pitcher, but not a good addition, especially three years removed from his last objectively good performance."
Whatever the case, I just wanted to bring it to your attention. Jackson always latches onto a team.
