Edwin Jackson has had quite the career so far. The 17-year veteran set a record by suiting up for his 14th different club last season, while essentially serving as a batting practice pitcher for Toronto and later Detroit (Jackson compiled a 3-10 record with an absurd 9.58 ERA).

Despite his disappointing year on the mound, Jackson intends to return for the 2020 season, perhaps even for a 15th different team.

Jackson has been the definition of a journeyman throughout his MLB career, with a career record of 107-133 and a career ERA of 4.78. To say that Jackson is even an effective pitcher at this stage in his career may be an overstatement, as the righty looked hapless on the bump in 2019. Even if we don't get the chance to see Jackson suit up for an MLB club in 2020, there is a chance that he will don his 15th different uniform, as a member of the German team in the upcoming World Baseball Classic.

As great as it would be to see Jackson extend his record by joining yet another ball club, the likelihood of him doing so may be slim to none following a hideous 2019 season.
