Trolling the Wire Pickup

Edwin Jackson, SP, Arizona Diamondbacks – Jackson threw eight shutout innings with 12 strikeouts on May 17th which was far and away his best start of the season. His ERA had been 7.43 to that point, but since that start he’s gone 2-1 in five starts with a 2.84 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 44.1 innings. He also has 43 strikeouts in that span. He looked pretty sharp against the Cardinals yesterday going 6.2 innings and allowing just two runs.

Since his season ERA is still a gaudy 5.18, he is likely on plenty of waiver wires, but I think it’s time to grab if you need some strikeouts and some quality innings. Don’t count on many wins with that atrocious bullpen supporting him, but wins are unpredictable anyway so that shouldn’t be your reason for picking someone up.

Bet of the Day

I’m going back to the well with the Cardinals even though they cost me yesterday. Instead of taking the moneyline, I’ll go with the runline as Adam Wainwright faces Luke French.
