Darn EDT games; hope you hurried home from work to catch this one.

Edwin Jackson Scouting Report: You're remembering correctly - he used to pitch for Tampa Bay. And he's off to one heck of a start as a Tiger; he's held the other team scoreless into the seventh three times already this year. Jackson throws a 94-mph fastball that he'll occasionally gear up into the 97-98mph range, along with an 85-86mph slider (and a handful of curves or changeups.) He'll throw about 60% fastballs and 30% sliders.
