  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Back with Atlanta

    Atlanta activated Jackson from the paternity list Sunday.

    Jackson rejoins Atlanta's bullpen after going on paternity leave Thursday. The righty has impressed with a 1.50 ERA and 18:5 K:BB in his last 12 innings and could potentially pitch in some save situations if closer Will Smith continues to struggle.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Goes on paternity list

    Atlanta placed Jackson on the paternity list Thursday.

    The team will replace Jackson in the bullpen with Chris Martin (elbow), who was reinstated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Jackson will be away from Atlanta for 1-to-3 days to spend time with his newborn child, and he should rejoin the team at some point during its 10-game West Coast road trip that kicks off Friday.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Captures second win

    Jackson (2-2) struck out three in 1.1 perfect innings to earn the win Tuesday versus Washington.

    The right-hander was able to limit the damage after Tyler Matzek allowed Washington to tie the game at 5-5 in the seventh inning. Jackson then became the pitcher of record as Atlanta retook the lead on an Ozzie Albies home run. Through 14.2 innings since the start of August, Jackson has given up two runs on nine hits and six walks while striking out 21. He's been excellent with a 2.05 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 59:25 K:BB through 52.2 innings overall while adding 24 holds as a setup man to closer Will Smith.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Strong campaign continues

    Jackson gave up a hit and struck out two in a scoreless seventh inning during Thursday's win over the Phillies.

    The right-hander has rebounded in strong fashion from an awful 2020 season. Through 41 appearances and 35 innings this year, Jackson has posted a 2.06 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 36:16 K:BB with a win and 12 holds. He's not likely to work his way back into the closer mix, but the 29-year-old has become a reliable setup man in front of Will Smith.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Nabs sixth hold

    Jackson gave up a hit and struck out one without allowing an earned run in two-thirds of an inning Sunday, recording his sixth hold of the season in a win over the Marlins.

    He did allow two inherited runners to score after entering the game with two on and one out in the seventh inning, but they went on A.J. Minter's ledger. Jackson extended his scoreless streak to 12 appearances and 10.1 innings with the effort, and on the year he boasts a 1.11 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 22:11 K:BB over 24.1 frames.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Stuck with loss Wednesday

    Jackson (1-1) took the loss Wednesday, allowing one run on one hit while striking out one in the seventh inning as Atlanta fell 4-1 to the Blue Jays.

    Entering the game with the score tied 1-1, Jackson's first pitch was launched over the center-field fence by Teoscar Hernandez. The right-hander has a strong 1.93 ERA through 14 innings to begin the season, but his 12:8 K:BB indicates he's been more lucky than good.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Picks up second hold

    Jackson gave up a run on two hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning Friday but still recorded his second hold of the season in a win over the Diamondbacks.

    Entering the game to protect a 4-2 lead in the seventh inning, Jackson put the first two runners aboard but would have escaped without any damage if the Atlanta defense had been able to turn a double play on an Eduardo Escobar grounder to Freddie Freeman. Instead it went as a fielder's choice, and Jackson got the hook after a Josh Rojas double. The run was the first the right-hander has given up this season, and he sports a 1.29 ERA through seven innings, albeit with a less appealing 6:7 K:BB.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Ticketed for middle relief

    Jackson appears set to begin the season in the Atlanta bullpen, Mark Bowman of reports.

    The right-hander has 18 saves and nine holds in 2019, but he was out of the high-leverage mix last year and likely won't regain a prominent spot in 2021. Jackson posted a solid 3.52 ERA and 7:3 K:BB over 7.2 innings this spring and should work primarily in middle relief.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Reaches deal with Atlanta

    Jackson signed a one-year, $1.9 million deal to avoid arbitration with the Braves on Wednesday.

    The right-hander recorded 18 saves and nine holds with a 3.84 ERA during 2019, but he struggled last season with a 6.84 ERA. Jackson wasn't included on Atlanta's playoff roster, but the team is apparently willing to give him a chance to rebound in 2021.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Denied spot on wild-card roster

    The Braves excluded Jackson from their roster for their wild-card series with the Reds that began Wednesday.

    Jackson was on the Braves' active roster throughout the regular season, but his poor finish to the campaign likely cost him a spot in the team's bullpen for the playoffs. Over his last five outings, Jackson gave up 13 runs on 18 hits and five walks over 10.1 innings.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Picks up rare win

    Jackson (2-0) allowed two runs on three hits while striking out five across four innings Wednesday as he earned the win over the Marlins.

    Jackson had to enter the game to begin the second inning after Max Fried (ankle) was forced out of the game as a precautionary measure after tweaking his ankle while fielding a bunted ball in the first. The 29-year-old had a clean outing aside from his effort in the fourth when he allowed two runs to score. Jackson's dependability has taken a tumble in 2020 as the right-hander has a 5.33 ERA and 20:12 K:BB in 25.1 innings this season.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Picks up relief win

    Jackson (1-0) pitched two innings, allowing an unearned run on four hits to earn the win in Saturday's extra-inning contest versus the Mets.

    Jackson entered a tied game in the ninth inning and managed to keep it that way. He gave up a pair of singles to start the 10th inning, but only Jeff McNeil scored on a Dominic Smith sacrifice fly. Jackson had 18 saves and nine holds with a 3.84 ERA and 106 strikeouts across 72.2 innings last year, but he's a setup man at best in 2020.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Dominant in Grapefruit League

    Jackson posted a 0.00 ERA and 10:3 K:BB through five Grapefruit League innings before spring training was suspended.

    Generating empty swings has never been Jackson's problem -- he struck out a career-high 106 batters in 72.2 relief innings last year. The 28-year-old opened 2019 as Atlanta's closer and delivered significant fantasy value with 18 saves, nine wins and nine holds, but he'll head into this season fourth at best in the pecking order for saves behind Mark Melancon, Will Smith and Shane Greene, putting a major damper on Jackson's upside.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Gets close to $2 million

    Jackson agreed to a one-year, $1.825 million deal with the Braves on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

    This is his first of three years as an arbitration-eligible player. At one point last year Jackson was cruising as the Braves' closer, but he will be hard-pressed to regain that job anytime soon after the additions of Will Smith and Mark Melancon.
