Edwin Jackson close to signing

League minimum is what the Marlins see when looking at Jackson and that's why they're bringing him in.

 

As for him being a bullpen piece or a fallback/depth starting pitching option, don't count on the Marlins to be that smart with him. Unless they magically acquire at least two better starters than him within the next few weeks, Edwin Jackson will be guaranteed a rotation spot.

 

If I was wrong, they'd have just gone with a minor league contract with a ST invite.

Admin I'm gonna open up the Edwin Jackson talk with this question so I'm gonna suggest take the last few posts and start a new thread?

 

So if we're signing Edwin Jackson let's take a best case scenario viewpoint. What CAN Edwin Jackson do for the Marlins in 2016? What do you think is the best way this deal works out for us?

He must have been offered the chance to start.  It's the kind of signing that we brought in Benedict for...he's had success with these type of reclamation projects in Pittsburgh.  Hopefully there is still something there.  At the least, he could be useful out of the pen.  I'm still holding out hope for a Kennedy signing (or the Cuban guy)...but more likely Pfister.

If Edwin is our number 2 starter and he gets through the first inning with less than 8 runs given up, you will be praising him. Latos failed at this test in the teams second game this year.

I bet the only reason he's going to Mia is because he'll at least get a chance to crack the starting rotation in the spring

 

A chance?

 

At this point he's at the very least "penciled in."

 

A rotation spot is "his to lose."

 

Any other cliches to explain that this guy is essentially guaranteed to be in our starting rotation this year?

Believe it or not its not a bad signing. He may have his SP days behind him although we will be starting him here until further notice. He is only costing us league minimum w/ the Braves taking on all but league minimum this upcoming season, and if he doesnt pan out we slide him to a mopup or middle reliever role which he was league average in last year with ATL after the trade from the Cubs. Still not happy w/ how quiet we have been but this is a better move than the jorge sosa and all those other fillers we picked up. Ohh and the great Jeff Mathis... How can I forget???

You're absolutely right with everything you've said. The problem is the Marlins don't see him the way you see him, as depth. The Marlins very likely think this guy is our #2 or 3 starter who is gonna lead this team to the postseason. They know they need SP but they're content with letting our 2016 chances lie on cheap reclamation projects.
