  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Throwing from 90 feet

    Jackson (back) is currently throwing from 90 feet, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Jackson will be reevaluated Friday to see if he's ready to begin throwing off a mound. The reliever suffered a lower-back strain Opening Day and will be eligible to return next weekend, although it's not clear at this point whether he'll be ready at that time.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Placed on injured list

    The Giants placed Jackson on the 15-day injured list Friday with a lower-back strain, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Jackson had to leave Thursday's game against San Diego after straining his back, and the injury is apparently severe enough to sideline him for a couple of weeks. Kai-Wei Teng was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento to fill Jackson's spot in the bullpen.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Leaves game with lower back injury

    Jackson left in the seventh inning of Thursday's game against the Padres with a back injury, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

    Jackson signalled for the trainer after throwing ball four to Jackson Merrill, and Ryan Walker came in to close out the seventh. Jackson noted after the game that he felt his back tighten after his second to last pitch to Merrill, and the right-hander will undergo an MRI on Thursday night, per Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Sent for MRI

    Jackson suffered tightness in his lower back Thursday against San Diego and is being sent for an MRI, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Jackson entered the game in the seventh inning and allowed two singles and a walk to the Padres before being removed due to the injury. He suffered from a similar issue in 2023, a concerning development given this was the first game of the new campaign.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Showing strikeout upside

    Jackson has allowed one run on one hit and one walk while striking out four over two Cactus League innings.

    Jackson missed all of 2022 while recovering from Tommy John surgery. He bounced back over the latter half of 2023, posting a 2.97 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 43:15 K:BB over 33.1 innings. Jackson's strikeout totals give him some real upside, but he doesn't have a clear path to consistent late-inning work with the Giants. The right-hander should mainly pitch in the middle innings, which could give him chances to vulture wins since the Giants have a lot of uncertainty in their rotation.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Returns from paternity leave

    Jackson was activated from the paternity leave list Thursday.

    Jackson missed the Giants' series against the Padres but will be available this weekend versus the Dodgers. He's been terrific out of San Francisco's bullpen this season, posting a 2.97 ERA and 43:15 K:BB over 33.1 frames.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Heads to paternity list

    Jackson was placed on the paternity list prior to Monday's game against the Padres.

    Jackson will be away from the team for the next few days for the birth of his child. Sean Hjelle was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento in a corresponding move.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Snares win Monday

    Jackson (2-2) allowed an unearned run on a hit and two walks while striking out one over one inning, earning the win Monday over the Guardians.

    Jackson was shaky in the 10th inning but limited the damage to an Andres Gimenez RBI single. The Giants rallied for two runs in their half of the frame to walk it off. Since the start of August, Jackson has allowed 10 runs (eight earned) over 17 innings with a 22:12 K:BB in that span. He's at a 3.14 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 37:15 K:BB with four holds and two blown saves through 28.2 innings. Jackson is one of few San Francisco relievers that's consistently worked later in games this year, as many have taken turns as openers or appeared early in bullpen games.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Stuck with second loss

    Jackson (1-2) took the loss Tuesday, surrendering four runs on three hits in two-thirds of an inning as the Giants fell 11-8 to the Cubs. He struck out two.

    A three-run shot by Christopher Morel accounted for most of the damage against Jackson, who was the fifth of six San Francisco pitchers to take the mound in an ineffective bullpen day. The right-hander has served up three long balls in his last 11 innings, leading to a 4.91 ERA over that stretch, but his 17:5 K:BB should keep him in a mid-to-high-leverage role for the Giants despite his volatility.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Handed loss Sunday

    Jackson (1-1) allowed two runs (one earned) on a hit and two walks while striking out one in two-thirds of an inning to take the loss and a blown save Sunday versus the Athletics.

    Jackson has taken two blown saves over five appearances since returning from a back injury, though the first of those was due to allowing an inherited runner to score. The right-hander has a still-solid 1.98 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 19:6 K:BB through 13.2 innings this season. He's in a low-leverage role, and his recent shakiness will likely keep him there for the rest of the season.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Activated from injured list

    Jackson (back) was activated from the 15-day injured list Saturday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Recovered from the lower-back strain that sent him to the injured list June 25, the 31-year-old right-hander will be available out of the Giants' bullpen Saturday in Washington. When healthy this season, Jackson has registered a sharp 2.16 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 10:2 K:BB in 8.1 major-league innings.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Nearing return from IL

    Jackson (back) is likely to be activated from the injured list this weekend, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Jackson has joined up with the Giants in Washington following a two-appearance rehab stint in the Arizona Complex League, where he tallied five strikeouts across a pair of scoreless innings. He's been on the shelf since June 25 with a lower-back strain after also missing much of the first half of the season while completing his recovery from Tommy John surgery.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Set for rehab assignment

    Jackson (back) will begin a rehab assignment with the Giants' Arizona Complex League affiliate Thursday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Jackson should need only one or two rehab appearances before rejoining the Giants' bullpen. He's been out since late June with a lower-back strain. Jackson holds a 2.16 ERA in 8.1 innings with the big club this season.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Out with back strain

    Jackson was placed on the 15-day injured list Sunday with a lower-back strain.

    Jackson exited Saturday's game with the injury and won't be eligible to return until after the All-Star break, which runs July 10-13. It's a tough break for the right-hander, who has a 2.16 ERA in 8.1 innings since being activated from the 60-day IL in late May.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Battling lower-back tightness

    Jackson was pulled from his appearance Saturday due to lower-back tightness, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    The severity of Jackson's injury remains unknown, but now we know for sure that it's not related to the elbow he had Tommy John surgery on last season. The 31-year-old reliever holds a 2.16 ERA and 0.84 WHIP through 8.1 innings since returning from the injured list May 31.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Exits with injury

    Jackson was removed from Saturday's game against Arizona with an apparent injury, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Jackson immediately signaled toward the Giants' dugout to come get him after throwing a pitch in the sixth inning. The 31-year-old reliever missed two months at the beginning of the season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. The Giants will take a look at him and provide further updates in the near future, but the fact Jackson immediately knew something was wrong is not a positive sign.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Picks up win Tuesday

    Jackson (1-0) allowed a hit and struck out three in a scoreless inning to earn the win in Tuesday's 11-3 victory over the Cardinals.

    Starter Alex Cobb went just four innings, with Jackson pitching the fifth before Keaton Winn converted a four-inning save. Jackson has done well so far, allowing one run, four hits and a walk with six strikeouts over 5.1 innings since returning from Tommy John surgery. The Giants' late-inning mix is pretty much set, but the right-hander could work his way into some opportunities for holds if he continues to pitch well.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Returning from 60-day IL

    San Francisco activated Jackson (elbow) from the 60-day injured list Tuesday, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Jackson is nearly 14 months removed from Tommy John surgery and will join the Giants' bullpen for Tuesday night's game against the visiting Pirates. He allowed four earned runs over 5.1 innings on a six-appearance minor-league rehab assignment and figures to be eased in as a lower-leverage option initially.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Could return this week

    Jackson (elbow) could be activated from the 60-day injured list this week, Danny Emerman of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.

    Jackson holds a 6.75 ERA and 8:4 K:BB over 5.1 innings on his rehab assignment as he nears the end of his long road back from Tommy John surgery. The reliever has pitched three of the last five days and says he feels good, but he'd like to refine his control a bit so it sounds like he could make at least one more rehab appearance. Jackson hasn't appeared in the majors since 2021.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Pitching again Saturday

    Jackson (elbow) will pitch again Saturday in a rehab appearance for Triple-A Sacramento.

    Jackson has made two relief appearances thus far on his rehab assignment, not allowing a run with two strikeouts over two innings. The right-hander is making steady progress after missing all of 2022 while recovering from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. The Giants will likely want to see Jackson work in back-to-back games before activating him, but he could be a late-inning option for the club before the month of May ends.
