The Cubs won't remove Jackson from the rotation just yet. "We're trying to give [Jackson] an opportunity to right the ship," Cubs GM Jed Hoyer said. "It seems like the first inning, we're in a hole right away, and he's battling right away, and we haven't been able to solve that problem. Hopefully, we can find a solution by the end of the year and go into the offseason with some momentum."
That said, the team is looking to find ways to give innings to Dan Straily (who will pitch Saturday but then will be sent back down), Jacob Turner and Felix Doubront. The Cubs don't believe that Jackson's problems stem from a degradation of his stuff (for instance, he hasn't lost velocity on his fastball), but rather his location.
