    • Jackson (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day DL on Friday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports. Jackson will return to the bullpen after a two-week stay on the disabled list due to a shoulder strain. The 26-year-old will slide back into the bullpen, where he's posted a 4.65 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 40.2 innings this season.

    • Braves' Luke Jackson: Coming off DL soon
      By RotoWire Staff

      Jackson (shoulder) is expected to come off the disabled list Sept. 1, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. By waiting to activate Jackson until Sept. 1, the Braves will be able to avoid having to make a corresponding roster move. The 25-year-old righty has struggled to shut down batters this season, as he's logged a disappointing 28:15 K:BB over 40.2 innings this season.

    • Jackson has 18 strikeouts and an ERA of 3.62 through 27.1 innings 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 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 six 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

      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: Sent back to minors
      By RotoWire Staff

      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.
