  • Braves' Jay Jackson: Moves rehab to Triple-A

    Atlanta transferred Jackson's (lat) rehab assignment Tuesday from the rookie-level Florida Complex League to Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Jackson heads to Gwinnett after he worked two innings between two appearances in the FCL on Thursday and Monday, with the right-hander giving up two runs (one earned) on one hit and no walks while striking out one. Since he's been on the shelf all season with a right lat strain, Jackson will likely make multiple appearances at Gwinnett before Atlanta considers activating him from the 60-day injured list.

  • Braves' Jay Jackson: Begins rehab assignment

    Jackson (lat) will begin a rehab assignment Thursday with Atlanta's rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate.

    Jackson is ready for his first game action of the season after Atlanta placed him on the 60-day injured list coming out of spring training due to a right lat strain. Atlanta has the luxury of keeping Jackson on the rehab assignment for up to 30 days, but because he projects to work as a one- or a two-inning reliever once activated from the IL, he may not need the full window of time in the minors to build up.

  • Braves' Jay Jackson: Out to begin year with lat strain

    Atlanta has placed Jackson on the 60-day injured list March 19 with a right lat strain.

    The transaction opened up a roster spot for reliever Kenley Jansen, who inked a one-year, $16 million deal with Atlanta. Jackson, whom Atlanta acquired from San Francisco in November, recorded a 3.74 ERA and 1.25 WHIP over 21.2 innings with the Giants in 2021.

  • Braves' Jay Jackson: Traded to Atlanta

    Jackson was sent from San Francisco to Atlanta in exchange for cash or a player to be named later Monday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Jackson recorded a 3.74 ERA in 21.2 innings for the Giants last season, with his 31.1 percent strikeout rate largely offsetting a high 13.3 percent walk rate and a low 27.1 percent groundball rate. He shouldn't be pitching in high-leverage situations, but he could fill a middle-relief role in Atlanta as long as he doesn't regress too much in his age-34 season.

  • Giants' Jay Jackson: Returns to majors

    Jackson was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Friday.

    The right-hander was sent to Sacramento on Thursday, but he finds himself back on the big-league roster just a day later with Jake McGee (oblique) moving to the injured list. Jackson has posted a respectable 3.92 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 26:10 K:BB across 20.2 big-league innings.

  • Giants' Jay Jackson: Optioned to Triple-A

    Jackson was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

  • Giants' Jay Jackson: Returns to majors

    Jackson was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Friday.

    The righty allowed three runs in five appearances during his most recent big-league stint, raising his ERA to 4.58 in 17.2 total innings this season. Jackson temporarily fills the bullpen spot of Jose Quintana, who was placed on the paternity list Friday.

  • Giants' Jay Jackson: Optioned to Triple-A

    Jackson was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Jackson made five appearances after he was recalled in late August, and he allowed three runs in three innings. He'll head back to Triple-A Sacramento to make room in the Giants' bullpen for Kervin Castro, who will be available to make his major-league debut.

  • Giants' Jay Jackson: Struggles as opener

    Jackson (2-1) lost Saturday's 6-1 defeat at the hands of the Dodgers, allowing three runs on one hit and two walks with one strikeout in one-third of an inning.

    Making his first career start, Jackson surrendered a leadoff homer and two walks while recording only one out before being removed. Both walks eventually came around to score and the 33-year-old eventually took the loss after San Francisco was unable to recover from the 3-0 deficit. While Jackson was never going to pitch deep into Saturday's game, manager Gabe Kapler expected more than one out and the righty most likely won't be utilized as an opener moving forward following the poor outing.

  • Giants' Jay Jackson: Heading up bullpen game

    Jackson will start Saturday's game against the Dodgers, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    This will mark the journeyman's first time taking the ball to start a big-league game. It will not be a traditional start, however; Jackson has not thrown more than two innings in an appearance this season. Sammy Long is a candidate to work multiple innings out of the bullpen behind Jackson.

  • Giants' Jay Jackson: Rejoins big-league bullpen

    The Giants recalled Jackson from Triple-A Sacramento on Sunday.

    Jackson was eligible to return to the Giants less than a week after being demoted since Evan Longoria (hand) was placed on the COVID-19-related injured list in a corresponding move. Over his 15 appearances out of the big-league bullpen this season, Jackson has posted a 3.68 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 21:6 K:BB in 14.2 innings.

  • Giants' Jay Jackson: Moves to minors

    Jackson was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    Jackson has a 3.68 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 21:6 K:BB over 14.2 innings for the Giants this season, but he'll now head back to the minors. The veteran right-hander is a strong bet to rejoin the big-league club at some point down the stretch.

  • Giants' Jay Jackson: Back from COVID-19 IL

    The Giants reinstated Jackson from the COVID-19-related injured list Sunday.

    Jackson was deactivated Saturday after experiencing side effects related to his COVID-19 vaccine shot, but he's apparently feeling good heading into Sunday's series finale with the Rockies. The hard-throwing right-hander should be available out of the bullpen.

  • Giants' Jay Jackson: Sidelined by side effects

    Jackson landed on the COVID-19 injured list Saturday while dealing with the side effects of his vaccine shot, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Given the reason for the move, it's likely Jackson won't wind up missing more than a day or two. The transaction clears space for the Giants to call up Sammy Long, who will start Saturday against the Rockies.

  • Giants' Jay Jackson: Collects second win

    Jackson (2-0) allowed a run on one hit and struck out one in one inning, but he earned the win Saturday over Houston.

    The right-hander gave up a game-tying solo home run to Martin Maldonado in the sixth inning, but San Francisco retook the lead in its half of the frame. Jackson has given up a run in each of his last two appearances, but he'd pitched six consecutive scoreless innings prior to that. For the year, he has a 2.35 ERA, 0.78 WHIP and 11:3 K:BB with two holds and a blown save in eight outings. He figures to remain in a low-leverage role with Jake McGee and Tyler Rogers locked in as the late-inning options for manager Gabe Kapler.
