The regular season is still a little over a week away, but the Braves have already gotten a bit of bad news. Luke Jackson is day-to-day and is being evaluated with right forearm tightness.
Luke Jackson is experiencing right forearm tightness. He’s day to day. He hasn’t pitched in a spring game yet.

Luke Jackson felt some right forearm soreness last week. He has resumed throwing. But the Braves aren't sure if he'll have enough time to be ready for the start of the season.

Jackson is a key member of Atlanta’s bullpen, which is thankfully one of their deeper units. If Jackson happens to miss extended time, Spencer Strider is the logical candidate to replace him. Strider is another hard-throwing righty that has tossed 4.1 scoreless innings this spring. I think Strider has potential as a starter, but some low-leverage innings in Jackson’s place isn’t the worst idea if he misses some time.
