      Braves' Edwin Jackson picks up relief win vs. Phillies on Saturday

      Braves pitcher Edwin Jackson (3-3) earned the victory on Saturday, completing one inning of hitless relief and striking out a batter in a 2-1 victory over the Phillies. Jackson turned in his second consecutive scoreless effort after surrendering runs in three consecutive appearances prior. He also faced the minimum number of batters for the second outing in September, and posted a strikeout for the third consecutive contest. The veteran reliever has turned in generally solid work overall for both the Cubs and Braves in 2015, and his current 1.24 WHIP metric is a nice improvement from his career 1.45 figure in that category.

      Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson earning Joe Maddon's trust

      Cubs relief pitcher Edwin Jackson is slowly making the transition into a full-time reliever. With the adjustment to his game, manager Joe Maddon is noticing how well he's doing out of the bullpen, reports MLB.com. "Jacks is starting to take to it," Maddon said. Jackson has a perfect 0.00 ERA in five innings of work this season with three strikeouts and no walks. Maddon noted he hasn't used Jackson anymore than he normally would have and it has nothing to do with the struggles of Brian Schlitter and Jason Motte. "I'm not saying you're not going to see Schlitter or Motte," Maddon said. "You always kind of like when it first starts out, you play it like it was first drawn up and don't try to make too many adjustments too soon until you need to try something differently. More than anything, I think Jackson has earned the right or opportunity to pitch in more opportune moments or more difficult moments for him."

      Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson staying prepared for any situation

      Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson knows his role isn't completely identified, but the veteran continues to prepare for any circumstance the team throws at him, reports MLB.com. "It's cool," Jackson said Saturday. "I'm like an inbetweener. I still chill with the starters, still chill with the bullpen, still chill with all the pitchers. I'm an inbetweener. I'm a bullpen-starter." Jackson has thrown two scoreless innings this season with two strikeouts and zero walks. "He's been very professional, and then he gets his chance and does really, really well and that tells you how well he's processed the whole moment," manager Joe Maddon said of Jackson. "That speaks well for him and for us." Jackson may see some time as a starter later in the year or as a long reliever. "I just have to be ready for whatever situation arises and just stay in the game," Jackson said. "That's all you're trying to do. Just be ready when the phone rings and your name is called regardless of the situation."
