Dodgers' Andre Jackson: In mix for starting role
Jackson is being considered to serve as a sixth starter for the Dodgers, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
The Dodgers are contemplating using a six-man rotation in May since the team plays 31 games in 30 days, and Jackson is one of several candidates to fill a starting role. The right-hander has made four starts at Triple-A Oklahoma City this year and has posted a 3.65 ERA and 1.49 WHIP in 12.1 innings.... See More ... See Less

Dodgers' Andre Jackson: Moves up to majors
The Dodgers recalled Jackson from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Los Angeles will bring Jackson aboard to provide the bullpen with a fresh arm capable of covering multiple innings after the Dodgers used four relievers to record the final 12 outs of Sunday's 10-2 win over the Padres. Jackson previously made three relief appearances for the Dodgers in 2021, logging 11.2 innings while giving up three earned runs and striking out 10.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Andre Jackson: Sent to minor-league camp
Jackson was sent to minor-league camp Monday, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.
Jackson made his major-league debut last season, tossing 11.2 innings. His 2.31 ERA over that small sample looks strong, but his 10:6 K:BB wasn't particularly impressive. He should be an option for the Dodgers at some point this year but won't break camp with the big-league squad.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Andre Jackson: Saves game No. 162
Jackson got the save in Sunday's 10-3 win against the Brewers, allowing two runs on four hits with three strikeouts in three innings.
Jackson entered in the seventh inning with Los Angeles ahead 10-1 and went the rest of the way to earn the save by virtue of pitching the final three innings of the victory. The 25-year-old rookie saw action in only three big-league games this season, finishing with an 0-1 record, a 2.31 ERA, a 1.37 WHIP and a 10:6 K:BB in 11.2 innings.... See More ... See Less

Jackson was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.
Jackson has posted a 1.04 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 8.2 innings across a pair of relief appearances in the majors this year, and he'll rejoin the Dodgers' bullpen ahead of Thursday's series finale in St. Louis.

Dodgers' Andre Jackson: Optioned to Triple-A
Jackson was optioned by the Dodgers on Saturday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Jackson pitched well enough in his second start of the year Friday against the Rockies, allowing on run over 4.2 innings of work, but he'll head to the minors nonetheless. Edwin Uceta will take his spot on the roster, giving the Dodgers and extra bullpen arm, but Jackson could return once rosters expand in September.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Andre Jackson: Takes loss despite strong effort
Jackson (0-1) was tagged with the loss Friday against the Rockies despite allowing only one run on four hits and two walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out two.
Jackson's string of eight straight scoreless innings to begin his big-league career came to an end when C.J. Cron belted a homer to left leading off the sixth frame, and that was enough to send the rookie hurler to his first MLB loss. Nonetheless, it was another impressive outing for the right-hander, who threw 49 of 77 pitches for strikes and didn't allow any additional extra-base hits. Jackson has now allowed just one run over his first 8.2 big-league frames, but it's unclear how he'll be used going forward or if he'll remain on the active roster.... See More ... See Less

Darien Nunez was optioned to make room on the 26-man roster.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Andre Jackson: Working behind opener
Jackson will pitch behind opener Brusdar Graterol in Friday's game against the Rockies, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The 25-year-old will serve as the primary pitcher in Friday's series opener, but Graterol will begin the game on the mound. During Jackson's major-league debut in mid-August, he allowed two hits and four walks while striking out five in four scoreless innings.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Andre Jackson: Unscored upon in big-league debut
Jackson pitched four scoreless innings against Pittsburgh on Monday, allowing two hits and four walks while striking out five. He did not factor in the decision.
After Justin Bruihl opened for the Dodgers with a scoreless frame, Jackson took over and tossed four scoreless innings of his own. He struggled with his control, throwing only 39 of 71 pitches for strikes and issuing four free passes, but the right-hander was able to work around the wildness. Per Eric Stephen of SBNation.com Jackson's scoreless debut was the 16th in Dodgers history of at least four innings. It remains to be seen how Los Angeles will utilize Jackson moving forward. Although it's possible that he heads back down to the minors, his strong first impression and the team's current health issues in the rotation could provide an opportunity for Jackson to stick with the big club....

Dodgers' Andre Jackson: Recalled by Dodgers
Jackson was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.
While Justin Bruihl will serve as the opener in Monday's bullpen game against Pittsburgh, Jackson will make his major-league debut as a long reliever. The 25-year-old has made 17 appearances (14 starts) in the minors this year, and he posted a 3.28 ERA and 1.02 WHIP in 71.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Andre Jackson: Gets consideration for call-up
Manager Dave Roberts said Jackson is "in the equation" to receive a call-up from Triple-A Oklahoma City and fill innings as a starter or long reliever in Monday's game against the Pirates, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.
Due to the depleted state of the rotation, Roberts plans to treat Monday's contest as a bullpen day. With multiple relievers needed to get the Dodgers through nine innings, expect Los Angeles to add another pitcher to the roster ahead of the series opener, with Jackson representing an appealing candidate to get the call. In addition to having the advantage of already possessing a spot on the 40-man roster, Jackson has been effective through his first two outings at Oklahoma City after getting a promotion from Double-A Tulsa earlier this month. He's covered eight innings while allowing three runs on five hits and two walks between the two starts.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Andre Jackson: Debuting at Triple-A
Jackson will make his Triple-A debut for Oklahoma City in Round Rock on Tuesday.
The right-hander was impressive at Double-A Tulsa this year, earning his promotion with a 3.27 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 75:20 K:BB over 63.1 innings. Jackson is unlikely to see the majors this season, given he's about to receive his first taste of Triple-A, but it remains a possibility if he continues to pitch well.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Andre Jackson: Harnessing stuff in Double-A
Jackson has a 3.91 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 62:14 K:BB across 46 innings spanning 11 appearances for Double-A Tulsa this season.
The good news is that Jackson has reined in the control issues that plagued him in 2019, when he walked 57 batters in 114.2 innings across two levels. The bad news is that being around the strike zone so much has resulted in Jackson serving up 11 long balls already this year -- with six of them coming in his last four outings. The 25-year-old righty also hasn't exceeded five innings in any start this season, so there's not much reason to think that he's close to contributing to the big-league rotation.... See More ...

Dodgers' Andre Jackson: Heads to MiLB camp
The Dodgers optioned Jackson to their minor-league camp Monday, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.
Jackson will likely open the season at Double-A Tulsa. During his last minor-league season in 2019, he split time between High-A Rancho Cucamonga and Low-A Great Lakes, logging a 3.06 ERA and a 141:57 K:BB in 114.2 innings across the two stops.... See More ... See Less
