Cubs release Edwin Jackson, eat $15 million left on contract

He’s no Carlos Silva though.

Edwin Jackson is officially a free agent, as the Cubs released the veteran right-hander after designating him for assignment last week.

That means Chicago is on the hook for the remaining $15 million or so on Jackson’s four-year, $52 million contract and he’s now able to sign with any team for whatever he can get.

Jackson was terrible as a starter for the Cubs in 2013 and 2014, combining to go 14-33 with a 5.58 ERA…
