The RHP Steven Jackson who was grabbed from the Yankees a few weeks back will now be in black and gold. Jackson, 27, had a 3.10 ERA in 11 appearances in the minors, with 15 strikeouts and four walks over 20 1/3 innings. His ERA was raised by a recent poor outing, but don’t be surprised if Jackson sees action quickly. I think the Pirates are looking for a long relief arm and Jackson could be the guy as he has been a starter in the past.
