Epstein laments Jackson deal, but still looking to improve Cubs
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein has stated that he won't be satisfied adding one starting pitcher to the rotation in the offseason.

"We need impact starting pitching," he told CSNChicago.com. "If you can add a top-of-the-rotation starter to what we have with (Jake) Arrieta, et al, it becomes really, really interesting in a hurry. We also could use just another quality, stable arm to go with it. So in an ideal world, we'll add two starting pitchers."

Epstein admitted he made a mistake in his disastrous signing of Edwin Jackson to a four-year, $52 million deal, which will pale in comparison to the money destined for potential free agents Jon Lester and Max Scherzer this winter. Jackson is 14-33 with a 5.58 ERA in two years with the Cubs, who are on the hook for two more seasons. But Epstein realizes that he must return to the free agent market to sufficiently improve his staff.

"I'm very confident that we'll add impact pitching from outside the organization," he said. "It has a chance to happen this winter. But we're not going to make any guarantees."

Cubs expecting more out of Edwin Jackson in 2015
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein told reporters that the team will expect more out of pitcher Edwin Jackson next season, MLB.com reports Friday. Jackson is in the second year of his four-year, $52 million deal. Last year, he led the National League in losses with 18, and is third in losses this year with 15. After making his final start on Sept. 19, he was moved to the bullpen.

"I think Edwin's aware that he needs to turn his Cubs career around and work hard and show better form that he's someone who can be counted on," Epstein said. "I think the default position is that given the competition we're going to have, guys will need to pitch well to have a spot."

Edwin Jackson gets obliterated in first start back from DL
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson failed to make it out of the opening frame in his first start back from a strained lat muscle on Friday at home against the Dodgers.

Jackson, who was activated from the disabled list before the game, served up a three-run home run to Matt Kemp and a run scoring single to Juan Uribe before leaving the game. He was shelled for five runs on four hits and one walk over two-thirds of an inning, dropping to 6-15 on the year.

Jackson owns a 6.38 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP over 27 starts (139 2/3 innings). His finale start of the season will come Friday at Milwaukee.
