WSC Birth Years: Edwin Jackson

Card #64 - Edwin Jackson

Born: September 9, 1983

Edwin already had success before coming to the White Sox. Jackson threw a no-hitter on June 25, 2010, where he threw 149 pitches and walked eight batters with the Arizona Diamondbacks against the Tampa Bay Rays.

After coming to the White Sox and meeting with pitching coach Don Cooper, it was revealed that he had been tipping pitches. On August 4, 2010, Edwin made his ChiSox debut, going 7+ innings and giving up one run. He gave up nine hits and one walk, while striking out six.

Edwin has a little it of wildness in him, but that should start to disappear the longer he works with the Pale Hose coaching staff. If Jackson can turn out even half as successful as Don Cooper's previous project, Matt Thornton, the sky will be the limit for Edwin.
