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.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Notches 13th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson struck out two and walked one in a scoreless ninth inning Saturday to record his 13th save of the season in a 5-4 win over the Mets.

The right-hander converted his third consecutive save opportunity and worked around a leadoff error by usually reliable first baseman Freddie Freeman. After walking J.D. Davis, he rallied to retire the next three batters. The 27-year-old has allowed just one earned run in his last eight appearances and overall has a 2.85 ERA and 1.22 WHIP to go along with a 57:13 K:BB.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Earns dominant save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson didn't allow a baserunner while striking out two to earn the save Tuesday against the Cubs.

Jackson sat the Cubs down in order, highlighted by consecutive swinging strikeouts to end the game. It was his 12th save of the season and his second consecutive successful conversion. However, he has still allowed seven runs (four earned) to cross the plate in the month of June. He remains the Braves' primary closer, but will have to continue to improve his performance to fend off the likes of Anthony Swarzak and A.J. Minter.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Allows run in save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson picked up his 11th save of the season Sunday against the Nationals, allowing one run on two hits and one walk in one inning.

Jackson entered Sunday's game in the 10th inning with a two-run lead and immediately ran into trouble, allowing a leadoff walk and a single to the first two batters he faced. Trea Turner followed with a run-scoring fielder's choice and moved to second on an Adam Eaton single, but Jackson settled in and retired the next two batters to secure the 4-3 win. Jackson is now 11-for-17 on save chances this season and owns a 3.08 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 52:12 K:BB through 38 innings.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Blows another save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (3-2) gave up two unearned runs on two hits in the ninth inning Saturday to blow his sixth save of the season and get saddled with the loss as Atlanta fell 6-5 to the Phillies.

The error that made the runs unearned was his own -- after allowing a leadoff single to Scott Kingery, Jackson threw wide of first base on Sean Rodriguez's sacrifice bunt -- so it's hard to call the blown save undeserved. The right-hander has now botched four of his last eight save opportunities, and with A.J. Minter back and Anthony Swarzak pitching well since his acquisition, Jackson's leash as closer could be very short.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Yields run in save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson allowed an unearned run on two hits during the ninth inning but still recorded his 10th save in a 6-5 victory against the Pirates on Thursday.

The Braves closer recorded the first two outs of the frame via the ground ball, one of which was produced on a nice bare-handed play from Dansby Swanson. Jackson gave up a double and infield single to the next two batters, but because the first baserunner advanced to third base on a passed ball before the single, the run was unearned. Still, Jackson has given up runs in four of his last five outings. He is 3-1 with a 3.18 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 49 strikeouts in 34 innings. Jackson is also 10-for-15 in save chances.

June 10, 2019 12:20 PM
Braves' Luke Jackson: Blows fifth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson gave up a run on two hits while striking out three in an inning of relief to blow his fifth save of the season in Sunday's extra-innings win over the Marlins.

The right-hander came into the game in the 10th inning after Atlanta had nudged ahead in the top of the frame on a bases-loaded walk, but a Harold Ramirez single and Martin Prado double with one out knotted the score back up. Jackson has now blown half of his last six save chances, posting a 5.59 ERA over his last 9.2 innings despite a seemingly dominant 20:2 K:BB. A.J. Minter has a 2.53 ERA and 15:2 K:BB in 10.2 innings for Triple-A Gwinnett, but as yet Atlanta doesn't seem to be thinking about making a change at closer.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Records ninth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson posted a four-out save, striking out the side in the ninth to preserve an 1-0 victory against the Marlins on Saturday.

The right-hander came on with a runner at second and two outs in the eighth, and while he gave up a walk, he worked out of that jam. Jackson then struck out the side with a single mixed in during the ninth. Since his last blown save May 21, Jackson has been better, yielding just one run in seven frames. Overall, he is 9-for-13 in save chances with a 2.90 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 45 strikeouts in 31 innings this season.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Gives up homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson allowed one run on a homer during a non-save situation in the ninth inning against the Tigers on Sunday.

Owners didn't have much to gain from Jackson entering with a four-run lead in the ninth, and making matters worse, he allowed a run. That moved his ERA back up to 3.03. The run didn't really hurt his other numbers, but Jackson probably needs to improve slightly to remain in the Braves' closer role for the long haul. He is 8-for-12 in save chances with a 1.18 WHIP and 42 strikeouts in 29.2 innings this year.

June 2, 2019 12:00 AM
Braves' Luke Jackson: Delivers five-out save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson earned the save Saturday against the Tigers by allowing one hit over 1.2 innings and recording all five outs via strikeout.

Jackson last appeared in a game Sunday at St. Louis but showed no signs of rust as he needed only 22 pitches. The 27-year-old has 10 strikeouts and zero walks across his last three appearances, covering 4.2 innings. Jackson has a 2.83 ERA and 1.19 WHIP overall and is 8-for-12 in save opportunities.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Notches seventh save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson picked up the save against the Cardinals on Sunday, tossing a scoreless 10th inning and allowing one hit while striking out two.

Jackson rewarded the Braves for sticking with him despite blowing his previous two save opportunities, giving up only a two-out single and striking out Kolten Wong to wrap up the victory. His grasp on the closer role is tenuous -- he has blown four of his seven save opportunities -- but his ability to strike batters out (36 Ks in 27 innings) makes him a viable late-inning option.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Falls apart in ninth
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (2-1) took the loss Tuesday, giving up three runs on four hits in two-thirds of an inning to blow his fourth save of the season as Atlanta fell 4-3 to the Giants.

Entering the game in the bottom of the ninth, Jackson allowed four singles and a steady parade of baserunners to take second base afterwards on two stolen bases and a fielder's indifference call before the floodgates really opened. The right-hander has blown back-to-back save chances and three of his last seven, which could force Atlanta to consider other closing options.

May 19, 2019 07:36 AM
Braves' Luke Jackson: Blows third save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson allowed one run on two hits and a walk and blew the save against the Brewers on Saturday.

The walk was intentional, but Jackson also hit a batter. He was fortunate to only give up one run, as the Brewers had the bases loaded with one out in the ninth, but Jackson had already blown the lead. He is 6-for-9 in save attempts and has blown two of his last six opportunities, but Atlanta doesn't really seem to have many other options for the closer role. He also has a 2.31 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 30 strikeouts in 23.1 innings this season.

May 18, 2019 02:28 AM
Braves' Luke Jackson: Needed for one-out save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson struck out the only batter he faced to record his sixth save of the season in Friday's 12-8 win over the Brewers.

It didn't seem like Atlanta was going to need its closer when the Braves wrapped up the sixth inning with a 12-0 lead, but the bullpen let Milwaukee back into the game, forcing manager Brian Snitker to summon Jackson with two on and two outs in the ninth. He's now 6-for-7 in converting save chances since moving into the closer role in late April, and his 2.01 ERA and 28:7 K:BB through 22.1 innings on the year are elite numbers for a reliever, albeit in a small sample.

May 16, 2019 01:04 AM
Braves' Luke Jackson: Nails down fifth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson struck out three over two scoreless innings to record his fifth save of the season in Wednesday's 4-0 win over the Cardinals.

After Dan Winkler walked the first two batters in the eighth inning on eight pitches while trying to protect a 2-0 lead, Atlanta manager Brian Sntiker turned to his closer to escape the jam and let him finish things out after Charlie Culberson tacked on a couple of insurance runs with a homer in the bottom half of the frame. Jackson now sports a 2.05 ERA and 27:7 K:BB over 22 innings, and he'll likely continue to be needed for more than three outs at a time given the unreliable arms in his setup crew.

May 12, 2019 10:28 PM
Braves' Luke Jackson: Nabs fourth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson allowed two hits and fanned two batters across two scoreless innings to earn the save Sunday against Arizona.

Jackson got himself out of a jam in the eighth inning, inducing a ground ball for the final out of the frame with runners on second and third. He managed to cruise through the ninth, retiring the side in order. Jackson has now converted on back-to-back save opportunities, and he'll continue to see chances with A.J. Minter out of the picture for the time being.

Braves' Luke Jackson: Earns third save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson struck out two in a perfect ninth inning against the Diamondbacks on Friday en route to his third save of the season.

Jackson retired the side in order on 15 pitches (10 strikes), bouncing back from his second blown save Thursday (his first since stepping into the closer role). A.J. Minter is out of the mix for now, so it seems it will be Dan Winkler and lefty Sean Newcomb serving as the top setup arms in front of Jackson. Jackson is throwing harder this year and has a healthy 20.3 K-BB%. He's looking like a priority add in leagues where he's still available.
