Travis Wood and Edwin Jackson could be co-starters for Cubs
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

LHP Travis Wood and RHP Edwin Jackson thought they were battling for the final spot in the Cubs' rotation, but that might not be the case. 

Manager Joe Maddon said the team is looking for creative ways to use both of them in some type of co-starters role. 

“There’s different ways to utilize both of them,” manager Joe Maddon said Friday, per MLB.com's Carrie Muskat. “It’s hard to say they’re both starters but we’ve talked about different ways to make it fit.”

Jackson is 1-1, with a 1.00 ERA this spring. Wood is 1-0, 1.80.

Cubs' Edwin Jackson tosses four innings vs. Diamondbacks
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson allowed three runs (one earned) on four hits and one walk in four innings while striking out three in Thursday's spring start against the Diamondbacks.

While Jackson has now surrendered eight runs in nine innings this spring, only one has been charged to the pitcher, giving him a 1.00 ERA in his three appearances to go with a 6:3 K:BB ratio. He started his offseason workout program early, which may be contributing to his solid start.

"I feel the work I put in the offseason has definitely helped," Jackson said after the outing, per MLB.com. "I wouldn’t say I never worked hard in the offseason, but it was a little different this offseason. I feel like I came in the best shape of my life, ready to go."

Jackson is in the mix for the final spot in the team's rotation.

Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson goes three scoreless innings Saturday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cubs veteran pitcher Edwin Jackson threw three scoreless innings Saturday, allowing just one hit. He's just trying to keep things simple as the season approaches, reports MLB.com.

"That mindframe -- when you're battling yourself and the hitters -- more times than not, it doesn't work out for you," Jackson said. "The game's hard enough as it is, trying to get hitters out. You're making it harder on yourself."

Jackson is working to finish strong on every pitch for the remainder of camp.

"[I need to be] pounding the zone with all my pitches, and throwing every pitch to completion," Jackson said. "If you can put the pressure on the hitter to put the ball in play, the odds are in your favor to let the defense work behind you."

Cubs' Joe Maddon: Edwin Jackson, 31, still has 'potential'
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Cubs manager Joe Maddon still thinks pitcher Edwin Jackson can put it all together at some point in his career. 

Over two seasons with the Cubs, Jackson has posted a 14-33 record and a paltry 5.58 ERA. At 31 years old, however, Maddon said Jackson still has the tools to become a solid pitcher in the Major Leagues. 

"It's rare that a guy who's [31] years old can still have the label of 'potential' attached to his abilities," Maddon said, via MLB.com. "You'd think he's arrived at that point. It's not all arrived with him yet. That's really interesting with a guy like him. There is room for improvement and he knows that."

Maddon managed Jackson back when both were with the Rays from 2006-2009. Maddon believes that Jackson can improve and become more consistent. 

"I think he probably outthinks himself sometimes or gets uncertain," Maddon said. "I really would like to see him just go out there and play and not worry about whatever, whether it's mechanics or sequences or whatever. Just go out there and pitch and permit your abilities to take over. He's got an exceptional arm and is an exceptional athlete and he's a great kid, but there's still that level for him to arrive at yet that he hasn't been."

Jackson, Wood among five vying for final spot in Cubs' rotation
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

With Cubs manager Joe Maddon indicating Monday that Kyle Hendricks has a spot in the rotation locked up behind Jon Lester, Jake Arrieta and Jason Hammel, that leaves Travis Wood, Edwin JacksonFelix Doubront, Jacob Turner and Tsuyoshi Wada vying for the final spot in the team's rotation.

“Everybody understands what’s going on here. There are no dummies," Maddon said, per MLB.com. “The line I like is that, I’m not going to lie to you. If I tell you the truth, you might be upset with me for about a week or two but then you’re going to be OK. But if I lie to you, you’re going to hate me forever.

“They’re very competitive and the fact we have a lot of folks for some really narrow choices, it’s going to be an interesting spring. I know that competition normally brings out the best in everyone.”
