Braves' Luke Jackson: Stuck with loss Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson appears set to begin the season in the Atlanta bullpen, Mark Bowman of MLB.com 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

March 24, 2020 11:00 AM
Braves' Luke Jackson: Dominant in Grapefruit League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Earns ninth win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (9-2) earned the win Wednesday after holding the Royals scoreless with four strikeouts across 1.1 innings.

The right-hander punched out all four batters faced through the fifth and sixth innings as the Braves took the lead for good. Through 69 appearances this season, Jackson owns a 3.88 ERA and 1.42 WHIP with 18 saves.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Records 18th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson allowed three hits but pitched a scoreless ninth inning to record his 18th save in a 5-4 win over the Marlins.

With a one-run lead, Jackson allowed three hits but worked his way out of it with an outfield assist from Ronald Acuna on the first single of the inning. Despite the arrival of Shane Greene and Mark Melancon via trades and their recent tryouts as closer, Jackson has allowed no runs in his last five appearances and Greene and Jackson's failures, could continue in the role. The righty has a 3.67 ERA through 54 innings this season.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Moves to setup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson will transition to a setup role following the acquisition of Shane Greene, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

This comes as no surprise, as Jackson has been shaky all season (17-for-24 in save chances with a 3.96 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 50 innings) while Greene owns an impressive 1.18 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 43:12 in 38 innings on the year.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Encounters more struggles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson allowed two runs on two hits without recording an out during the ninth inning in a 5-4 extra-inning victory against the Nationals on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old would sure like to face a different team. In his last three outings against the Nationals, Jackson has allowed seven runs in two innings. On Wednesday, he wasn't charged with a blown save. However, Jackson allowed two hits to the two batters he faced, and then both runners scored against the next relief pitcher, which tied the game. With a couple bullpen additions at the trade deadline, it will be interesting to see if the Braves keep Jackson in the closer role. He has 17 saves with seven blown opportunities, along with a 3.96 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 67 strikeouts in 50 innings this season.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Struggles continue Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson gave up three runs on three hits and a walk in the ninth inning of Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

Atlanta held an 11-5 win when Jackson took the mound, but he promptly served up a two-run homer to Juan Soto and then an RBI single to Brian Dozier to make things interesting. The right-hander now has a bloated 10.50 ERA in six innings since the All-Star break, and Jackson's days as closer could be numbered with Chris Martin (back) joining the Atlanta bullpen via trade.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Bailed out after blown save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (5-2) blew his seventh save of the season Friday but recorded the win in a 4-3 victory over the Nationals, giving up two runs on two hits in an inning of relief while striking out two.

Called upon in the ninth inning to protect a 3-1 lead, Jackson instead served up a two-run homer to Victor Robles, only for Atlanta to walk it off in the bottom of the frame. Jackson now sports a 3.19 ERA and 66:18 K:BB through 48 innings, and despite his 17 saves on the year he remains a prime candidate to lose his spot as closer if Atlanta adds bullpen reinforcements at the trade deadline.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Strikes out two in save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson struck out two and allowed no hits and no walks through a scoreless ninth inning Monday to record his 17th save in a 4-2 win over the Brewers.

Jackson entered the game with a two-run lead and quickly slammed the door to nail down his 17th save of the season. While Jackson often allows baserunners and makes things interesting, the right-hander has earned saves in his last four appearances and has a 2.87 ERA with a 12.3 K/9 overall this season.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Rocky road to save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson allowed one run on two hits and two walks while striking out one to earn his 16th save of the season in Saturday's 7-5 extra-inning win over the Padres.

The Braves gave Jackson a three-run lead in the top of the 10th inning, but the closer made things interesting by loading the bases before striking out Padres pitcher Luis Perdomo to escape the jam. Jackson has allowed a run in each of his saves to start the second half of the season, pushing his ERA up to 2.93 for the year. The 27-year-old also has a 62:18 K:BB in 46 innings this season.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Notches 15th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson picked up the save Friday against the Padres after allowing one run on a hit and a walk with two strikeouts over one inning.

Jackson gave up a leadoff walk to Manuel Margot, then punched out Greg Garcia and Fernando Tatis Jr. before allowing an RBI single to Eric Hosmer to make the score 5-3. Fortunately, that was the final run of the night for the Padres as Jackson got Manny Machado to ground out and end the game. The 27-year-old now owns a 2.80 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 61:16 K:BB with 15 saves over 42 appearances.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Gets 14th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson gave up three hits and a walk through a scoreless inning to record his 14th save in a 4-3 win over the Marlins on Sunday.

Jackson definitely made things interesting. He allowed three singles to start the ninth inning before an outfield assist by Charlie Culberson prevented the tying run from scoring. The right-hander went on to walk the next batter before finally finishing the game with a flyout to secure the save. Jackson has a 4-2 record with 14 saves and a 2.66 ERA through 40 appearances heading into the All-Star break.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Grabs fourth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (4-2) picked up the win in Friday's 1-0 victory over the Marlins, allowing one hit and striking out two in a scoreless ninth inning.

With a save chance no longer possible at home, Jackson entered a 0-0 tie in the ninth and promptly gave up a leadoff double to Jorge Alfaro, but the Atlanta closer settled down and didn't let him advance any further. He then got rewarded when Brian McCann came through with a bases-loaded walkoff single in the bottom of the frame. Jackson has hardly been a shutdown option at the back of the bullpen, blowing six save chances against 13 conversions, but his 59:14 K:BB through 43 innings does highlight his upside.
