Braves' Luke Jackson: Lack of strikeouts limiting fantasy value
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson has 18 strikeouts and an ERA of 3.62 through 27.1 innings so far in 2017.

After playing a handful of games with the Texas Rangers the last two seasons, Jackson has gathered more playing time in his first season with Atlanta. The good news for the Braves' reliever is that he's only given up runs in four out of 24 outings. The bad news, however, is that he gave up 11 runs in those games despite only pitching a total of 6.0 innings. Add in his low strikeout rate of 15.9 percent and you get a reliever who appears to be high risk and low reward.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Picks up win Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson walked one and struck out one while recording the final two outs of the 11th inning Wednesday and was made a winner when Matt Kemp launched a walkoff homer in the bottom half of the frame.

It's his second big-league win, and the 25-year-old continues to give the Braves serviceable innings in a low-leverage role. Jackson's 3.93 ERA doesn't reflect how consistent he's been since his promotion in mid-April, as five of the eight earned runs he's allowed came in one bad outing against the Mets. His 5.9 K/9 will need to improve if he's going to climb the ladder in Atlanta's bullpen hierarchy, however.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Pitching well in low-leverage role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson has a 0.93 ERA and 0.93 WHIP since being recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett in mid May.

It's still a small sample size for the 25-year-old, but he has issued only two walks in 9.2 innings since his call-up. Jackson could earn a larger role if he maintains his numbers but is currently limited to low-leverage situations for the Braves.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Called up by Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was recalled by the Braves on Saturday.

With Eric O'Flaherty landing on the disabled list, the Braves replenished their bullpen depth by bringing up Jackson. The 25-year-old Jackson has made just three appearances with the big league club this season, all of them coming in mid-April. He notched a 6.35 ERA with a 1.71 WHIP at Triple-A Gwinnett across seven appearances. Jackson figures to assume a low leverage middle relief role while he's up with the Braves.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Sent back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.

The 25-year-old right-hander pitched in the past three games, and after giving up a pair of runs in Wednesday's outing, he'll head down to the minors to make room for Aaron Blair to join the bullpen. Jackson could be back with Atlanta once he has a chance to catch his breath, but he'll need to be a bit sharper if he wants to stick with the big-league club again.
