Jackson has signed a contract with the Chiba Lotte Marines of the Nippon Professional Baseball Organization, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.
Jackson appeared in 28 games for the Brewers a season ago, finishing with a 4.45 ERA and 1.32 WHIP with a 47:18 K:BB over 30.1 frames. A return to Major League Baseball can't be ruled out at this point, though he'll likely need to show improvement overseas to earn a big-league contract.
Jackson elected free agency Friday.
Jackson pitched in the big leagues in 2019 for the first time in four years, recording a 4.45 ERA in 30.1 innings. His 35.6 percent strikeout rate will likely generate some interest this offseason despite the fact that he just turned 32, though it came with a 13.6 percent walk rate.
Jackson tossed a scoreless inning of relief in Monday's victory over the Marlins.
Jackson allowed two hits and two walks while covering parts of two frames, but he managed to keep the opponent off the scoreboard, and picked up his first hold of the season in the process. Monday's outing was a snap shot of Jackson's latest big-league stint, which dates back to Aug. 18: since that date he has allowed 10 hits and walked five batters over 10.1 frames, but he has allowed just four earned runs (3.48 ERA), thanks mainly to a stellar 16 strikeouts.
Jackson was recalled from Triple-A San Antonio prior to Sunday's game against the Nationals.
The Brewers used 10 pitchers in Saturday's 14-inning win against the Nationals, so they needed reinforcements. Jackson should work in low-to-mid-leverage situations.
Jackson was optioned to Triple-A San Antonio on Saturday.
He had been pitching fairly well, striking out 10 and allowing one run over his last 5.2 innings, but the Brewers wanted a fresh arm for the pen after Jackson was used in Friday's game. Aaron Wilkerson was recalled in a corresponding move.
Jackson's contract was selected by the Brewers on Saturday.
Jackson spent a brief period in Milwaukee early in the season, allowing five runs while recording just seven outs. His numbers at Triple-A San Antonio are excellent, however, as he owns a 1.01 ERA and a 0.88 WHIP in 35.2 frames. Mauricio Dubon was optioned in a corresponding move.
Jackson accepted his outright assignment to Triple-A San Antonio, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

In a trio of appearances for the Brewers this season, Jackson struck out three while allowing five runs on four hits and a walk across 2.1 innings.

Jackson made three appearances during his time on the roster but failed to impress, allowing five runs in 2.1 innings. Adrian Houser was called up in a corresponding move.
Jackson had his contract selected from Triple-A San Antonio on Monday.
Jackson hasn't allowed a run through seven appearances with San Antonio this season, racking up 14 strikeouts and a trio of saves while allowing just four hits and two walks in 8.2 innings of work. The right-hander figures to pitch in lower-leverage situations upon initially joining the big club, though that could change if he impresses.
Jackson will open the season with Triple-A San Antonio, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
Jackson had been in big-league camp as a non-roster invitee but wasn't expected to break camp with the team. The Brewers' bullpen has been getting banged up recently, but Jackson isn't on the 40-man roster, so he he's unlikely to be one of the first few names called upon.
Jackson signed a minor-league deal with the Brewers that includes an invite to major-league spring training.
Jackson last pitched in a major-league organization with the Padres in 2015, mostly appearing at the Triple-A level. The 31-year-old spent the last three seasons with the Hiroshima Carp in the Japan Central League, posting a 2.10 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 9.8 K/9 across 175 appearances.
Jackson was granted his release Saturday, and he intends to play in Japan next season, Corey Brock of MLB.com reports.
Jackson made six appearances for the Padres last season, spending most of the year at Triple-A El Paso, where he posted a 2.54 ERA to go with a 1.147 WHIP in 48 appearances. The 28-year-old will sign with the Hiroshima Toyo Carp, leaving the Padres with 39 players on their current 40-man roster.
