Jackson (3-6) took the loss against the Astros on Monday, giving up five runs (four earned) on seven hits over five innings, striking out six and walking four as the Tigers fell 5-4.
The veteran right-hander had posted solid lines in his first two starts with the Tigers, but he couldn't keep it going in this contest, as he labored for 108 pitches in his five innings before getting chased. It's been a rough season for Jackson, as this brings his ERA up to 8.46 and his WHIP to 1.88 across 44.2 innings on the season between the Blue Jays and Tigers. Jackson lines up to face the Twins on the road Saturday in his next start, which projects to be another tough matchup.
Jackson (3-6) allowed five runs (four earned) across five innings to take the loss Monday in Houston. He gave up seven hits and four walks to go along with six strikeouts.
It looked like it would be a very short outing for Jackson after the veteran allowed four first-inning runs, but he righted the ship after the rocky start. The six strikeouts are a season high, though it's still hard to trust the 35-year-old much moving forward given his 8.46 ERA and 1.88 WHIP across 44.2 innings. Jackson lines up to face the Twins on the road Saturday in his next start, which projects to be another tough matchup.
Jackson (3-5) gave up two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out four through five innings to take the win over the Mariners on Wednesday.

The 35-year-old has an 8.62 ERA overall, but he has a 2.43 ERA in two starts for the Tigers. Jackson will make his next start Monday against the Astros at Minute Maid Park.
Jackson will remain in the Tigers' rotation, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Jackson (2-5) picked up the win after allowing one run on four hits and two walks Friday while striking out four over 6.1 innings against the Royals.
Jackson was called up from Triple-A Toledo prior to Friday's matchup, and he performed well despite an ugly ERA (11.12) entering the contest.

Jackson was recalled from Triple-A Toledo to start Friday's game against the Royals.

Jackson agreed Monday with the Tigers on a minor-league contract, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Jackson will report to Triple-A Toledo and will presumably claim a spot in the affiliate's rotation right away. if Jackson fares well in his initial outings with Toledo, he could be summoned to the big club to fill a back-end starting role. Detroit is currently without a fifth starter while Spencer Turnbull (back) is on the injured list and has generally struggled all season to find reliable rotation options behind the rookie and ace Matthew Boyd. The 35-year-old Jackson boasts plenty of experience at the MLB level but was roughed up to the tune of an 11.12 ERA and 2.19 WHIP across 28.1 innings with Toronto earlier in 2019.
Jackson cleared release waivers and has elected to enter free agency, John Lott of The Athletic reports.
Jackson was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Tuesday. He posted an 11.12 ERA and 2.19 WHIP with a 19:13 K:BB ratio across 28.1 innings this season with the team. He is now free to a sign a contract with any team.
Jackson was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Tuesday.
Jackson was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Sunday after missing time with a lower-back injury, but even after firing three scoreless frames during Monday's clash, he's been designated for assignment. He possesses an 11.12 ERA and 2.19 WHIP with a 19:13 K:BB over 28.1 innings this season with Toronto.
The Blue Jays activated Jackson (back) from the 10-day injured list Sunday.
The Blue Jays have set their rotation for the next two days, so the team's decision to activate Jackson suggests he'll be in line for a bullpen role initially in his return to action. Jackson should be available in Sunday's series finale with the Yankees for multiple innings in relief after the Blue Jays needed five bullpen members to cover the final seven frames of Saturday's 2-1 win after starter Clayton Richard (lat) departed following the second inning. Toronto will require a replacement in the rotation for Richard beginning July 18 after the lefty was moved to the 10-day IL to clear room on the active roster for Jackson.
Jackson (back) joined Triple-A Buffalo to start a rehab assignment Wednesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Jackson landed on the injured list June 18 with the lower-back injury after giving up seven runs in his previous start. The 25-year-old may not return to the Blue Jays in a starting capacity, instead serving in a multi-inning role out of the bullpen.
Jackson (back) is throwing from a mound without issue, Alexis Brudnicki of MLB.com reports.
It's not clear exactly where Jackson stands in his recovery, but things are going as planned so far. With him able to throw from a mound, a rehab assignment may not be far off.
Jackson was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday due to a lower-back injury, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.
Jackson was tagged for seven runs during Monday's start against the Angels, though the back issue may have played a role in his poor showing. The Blue Jays have yet to issue a timetable for his return, but he'd miss just one turn through the rotation if he can return after the 10-day minimum.
Jackson (1-5) took the loss Monday as the Blue Jays were downed 10-5 by the Angels, surrendering seven runs on six hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks in only two-thirds of an inning. He failed to strike out a batter.
After Derek Law turned in a perfect first inning as the Jays' opener, Jackson entered the game and served up a homer to Justin Upton on the first pitch he threw, setting the stage for an absolutely disastrous outing. The veteran right-hander came into Monday with a double-digit ERA and somehow made it worse, and he now sits with a 12.43 mark, and a mind-boggling 4.3 HR/9, through 25.1 innings. Toronto doesn't have a lot of options to replace Jackson, but even in a rebuilding season it seems inconceivable that they'd continue to send the 35-year-old to the mound every fifth day given his performance so far.
Jackson will work as the primary pitcher Monday against the Angels.
Derek Law will serve as the opener in front of Jackson for a second straight week. The veteran right-hander picked up a win as the primary pitcher his last time out, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out two across five innings.
Jackson (1-4) allowed two earned runs on four hits, two walks and a wild pitch while striking out two across five innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Orioles.
Jackson took over in the second inning and worked with little trouble until losing his command in the fifth inning. He began the frame by walking the first two batters he faced and ultimately allowed a run to cross the plate on a wild pitch. Still, this was one of Jackson's better efforts of the season and the first time he's worked five innings since May 20 -- a span of three starts. Even with this performance, he has a 10.22 ERA and 2.03 WHIP across 24.2 innings for the season. He'll likely pitch again Monday against the Angels, though it remains to be seen if he works as a traditional starter or a primary pitcher.
Jackson will work as the primary pitcher Wednesday against the Orioles, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Jackson was originally scheduled to start, but he'll instead follow an opener (Derek Law) in an effort to get him past the top of the order out of the gate. The veteran right-hander has made five starts for the Blue Jays this season, struggling to an 11.90 ERA, 2.24 WHIP and 15:8 K:BB in 19.2 innings.
Jackson is not starting Wednesday against the Orioles, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Jackson had been scheduled to take his turn in the rotation, but Derek Law will get the nod instead. Law hasn't pitched more than two innings in any appearance this season, so he's likely to be more of an opener than a true starter. There haven't been any reports of Jackson battling an injury, so it's possible he'll be available as a primary pitcher following Law. With an 11.90 ERA and a 2.24 WHIP in his five starts for the Blue Jays this season, it would hardly be a surprise for Jackson to permanently lose his spot in the rotation.
