Edwin Jackson may get a call to start in place of Alvarez

Bad spring, great future, chance to prove himself. Every pitcher wants to pitch in Dodger Stadium, as long as they score runs behind him. Any thoughts?

Did you read/hear that they were bringing him back up or do you just think that's what they'll do?

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Jackson is not doing that well at triple-A Las Vegas:

5-2, 5.13 ERA, 52.2 IP, 38K, 24 BB, 56 hits allowed, 1.57 WHIP.

Not exactly dominating. Replacing Alverez with Jackson at this point would not make any sense. I dunno...

Damn. I hadn't really been following him in the minors, didn't realize he was doing that poorly. 8-o

For the look of it, he's seems to be having control problems...

Not sure what the Dodgers will do for the Wednesday game. Options are to start someone out of the pen or call up someone for a start or two.

Jackson has been unimpressive here in Las Vegas. Command has been lousy. So ya got me as to whether they call on him. Maybe Dreifort or Falkenborg?

Seems as though they will have to call someone up, just not sure it will be a starter.

Rotoworld said 1 start, but it is a strecthed hip muscle, and Now That Lima is pitching lights out, alvarez may go back to the pen.
I think he will be back in 2 weeks no sooner
