  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Returning from 60-day IL

    San Francisco activated Jackson (elbow) from the 60-day injured list Tuesday, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Jackson is nearly 14 months removed from Tommy John surgery and will join the Giants' bullpen for Tuesday night's game against the visiting Pirates. He allowed four earned runs over 5.1 innings on a six-appearance minor-league rehab assignment and figures to be eased in as a lower-leverage option initially.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Could return this week

    Jackson (elbow) could be activated from the 60-day injured list this week, Danny Emerman of KNBR 680 San Francisco reports.

    Jackson holds a 6.75 ERA and 8:4 K:BB over 5.1 innings on his rehab assignment as he nears the end of his long road back from Tommy John surgery. The reliever has pitched three of the last five days and says he feels good, but he'd like to refine his control a bit so it sounds like he could make at least one more rehab appearance. Jackson hasn't appeared in the majors since 2021.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Pitching again Saturday

    Jackson (elbow) will pitch again Saturday in a rehab appearance for Triple-A Sacramento.

    Jackson has made two relief appearances thus far on his rehab assignment, not allowing a run with two strikeouts over two innings. The right-hander is making steady progress after missing all of 2022 while recovering from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery. The Giants will likely want to see Jackson work in back-to-back games before activating him, but he could be a late-inning option for the club before the month of May ends.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Moves rehab to Triple-A

    Jackson (elbow) moved his rehab assignment to Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Jackson threw a scoreless inning in his rehab debut Sunday at Single-A San Jose and should be ready to join the Giants' bullpen once he successfully logs back-to-back outings at Triple-A. The 31-year-old reliever is now more than 13 months removed from Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Beginning rehab assignment

    Jackson (elbow) is beginning a rehab assignment with Single-A San Jose on Sunday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Jackson is first eligible to come off the 60-day injured list May 29, and the right-hander may be ready to go by that point if he endures no setbacks during his rehab assignment. He's working his way back from the Tommy John surgery he underwent last February and will presumably require several outings in the minors to build up his velocity and hone his command. Once activated, Jackson could emerge as a late-inning option out of the San Francisco bullpen.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Jackson (elbow) was moved to the 60-day injured list Saturday.

    Jackson is still working his way back from Tommy John surgery, and the move confirms he won't be ready to go for at least two months. His former spot on the 40-man roster will go to Bryce Johnson, whose contract was selected in a corresponding move.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Opens season on IL

    The Giants placed Jackson (elbow) on the 15-day injured list Thursday.

    Jackson is just under a year removed from getting Tommy John surgery, and though he has since resumed throwing bullpen sessions and could soon be ready to face hitters, he's most likely at least a month away from heading out on what will presumably be a prolonged rehab assignment. Whenever the Giants determine Jackson is ready to return from the IL, he'll likely be ticketed for a middle-innings role, at least early on.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Throwing bullpen sessions

    Jackson (elbow) threw his third bullpen session of the spring Wednesday, Evan Webeck of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Jackson is almost 11 months removed from Tommy John surgery and seems to be trending well in his recovery. As long as there are no setbacks along the way, the 31-year-old right-hander should be an option for the Giants' bullpen around late May or early June. He inked a two-year, $11.5 million deal with San Francisco in January.

  • Giants' Luke Jackson: Joins San Fran on two-year pact

    Jackson (elbow) signed a two-year, $11.5 million contract with the Giants on Monday.

    Per Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, Jackson will take home $9.5 million between the first two years of his contract, which also includes a $7 million club option or $2 million buyout for the 2025 season. After undergoing Tommy John surgery this past April, Jackson will be a candidate to open the upcoming season on the 60-day injured list, but he should be at close to full health by around the All-Star break, if not sooner. The 31-year-old handled a pivotal role out of the bullpen for Atlanta's World Series-winning club in 2021, turning in a 1.98 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 70:29 K:BB across 63.2 frames while notching a career-high 31 holds.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Throwing again

    Jackson (elbow) revealed Wednesday via his personal Twitter account that he resumed throwing for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery April 13.

    Jackson will likely be limited to playing catch while gradually extending his throwing distance off flat ground, but he could be ready to resume mound work at some point later this winter. He'll still face restrictions at the start of spring training, but he could avoid a stint on the 60-day injured list to begin the 2023 campaign if his team confident he's far enough along in his recovery to return at some point in the first two months of the season. Jackson will first look to secure a contract with Atlanta or another squad, as he's set to become an unrestricted free agent this winter.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Loses arbitration case

    Jackson (elbow) will receive a $3.6 million contract for 2022 after losing his arbitration case with Atlanta on Thursday, Mark Feinsand of reports.

    Jackson suffered a torn UCL late in spring training and underwent Tommy John surgery in mid-April. The right-hander will miss the entire 2022 season and should also be unavailable early in 2023.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Gets Tommy John surgery

    Atlanta announced Wednesday that Jackson underwent Tommy John surgery Wednesday in Arlington, Texas.

    Tommy John surgery always appeared to be the likely outcome for Jackson after an MRI earlier this month revealed that he was dealing with UCL damage in his right elbow. Now that the procedure has been completed, Jackson will be sidelined for the entire 2022 season, and his recovery will likely extend into the early portion of the 2023 campaign as well.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Lands on 60-day IL with torn UCL

    Jackson (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Sunday with a torn UCL.

    Atlanta reported Saturday that an MRI showed damage to Jackson's UCL, but the extent of that damage was previously unclear. The right-hander may require Tommy John surgery, which would likely sideline him until the summer of 2023.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Dealing with UCL damage

    Jackson (forearm) recently underwent an MRI that revealed damage to his UCL.

    Jackson dealt with forearm tightness this week and was initially labeled as day-to-day, but it appears as though he'll be forced to miss significant time. UCL damage can often lead to Tommy John surgery, and the right-hander is undergoing a comprehensive evaluation process to determine his recovery process. It's possible that he'll be unavailable for most or all of the 2022 campaign following his diagnosis.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Uncertain for Opening Day

    Jackson (forearm) completed a 10-pitch bullpen session Thursday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    The side session marks a step forward for Jackson after he missed a week of workouts at the start of camp due to forearm tightness, but manager Brian Snitker is still characterizing the right-hander as "day-to-day" as Opening Day nears. Atlanta hasn't yet ruled Jackson out from avoiding a trip to the injured list to begin the season, but he'll presumably need to advance to facing hitters within the next few days to have a shot at breaking camp as a member of the big club's bullpen.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Dealing with forearm tightness

    Jackson is day-to-day with forearm tightness, Justin Toscano of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Forearm tightness can sometimes be the first sign of a very serious injury, though the fact that Jackson is merely considered day-to-day may suggest that this isn't one of those cases. While he's resumed throwing, the issue has so far prevented him from pitching in a Grapefruit League game, so it's possible he'll be forced to open the season on the injured list even if his forearm tightness proves to be relatively minor.

  • Braves' Luke Jackson: Back with Atlanta

    Atlanta activated Jackson from the paternity list Sunday.

    Jackson rejoins Atlanta's bullpen after going on paternity leave Thursday. The righty has impressed with a 1.50 ERA and 18:5 K:BB in his last 12 innings and could potentially pitch in some save situations if closer Will Smith continues to struggle.
