Cubs release RHP Edwin Jackson

CHICAGO (AP) The Cubs released right-hander Edwin Jackson on Monday, one week after he was designated for assignment.

Jackson, 31, was 2-1 with a 3.19 ERA in 23 relief appearances for the Cubs this season. Signed to a four-year deal worth $52 million before the 2013 season, Jackson struggled badly over his first two years with the Cubs, going 14-33 with a 5.58 ERA and was moved to the bullpen near the end of last season.

Cubs general manager Theo Epstein said the team would "really like" to make a move before Friday's non-waiver trade deadline, and he gave some hints about which direction the team is looking to go.
