Edwin Jackson was claimed by the Padres and converted back to a starter as he took Drew Pomerantz place in the Padres rotation. Jackson beat the Giants last week and took a no-hitter late into the game before he gave it up.
For the Nationals, Max Scherzer will have to pitch well for the Nationals tonight after we have seen too many sub-par performances this week.
Lucas Giolito was named the starter for tomorrow and that move will require a corresponding move as Giolito must take someone’s spot on the active roster.
Here is the Nats stats against Jackson:
