Jackson was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Jackson was auditioning for one of the last available spots in the Braves bullpen, but after he was outperformed by Blaine Boyer and Chaz Roe in recent spring games, Atlanta decided to send him back to the minors for further seasoning. If Jackson shows he can harness better control of his pitches at Triple-A, he may be one of the top options for a call-up should a need arise in the bullpen.
