In brief: No

Jammed fingers come froma ball or person or the ground hitting the tip of you finger this can still occur with sports glove.
Only a baseball mitt decreases the risk of a ball strike. If you get a jammed finger you should get a x-ray because often there is more damage then initially thought.
