The Diamondback released Jackson on Thursday, Andersen Pickard of MLBDailyDish.com reports.
Jackson joined the Diamondbacks in camp as a non-roster invitee prior to the COVID-19 outbreak but was likely facing an uphill battle to claim an Opening Day roster spot anyway.

The 36-year-old appears to face an uphill battle in his quest for an Opening Day roster spot. In 67.2 innings for the Blue Jays and Tigers last season, he struggled to a 9.58 ERA while striking out just 15.5 percent of opposing batters.

He's scheduled to take the ball Sunday against Baltimore.

Jackson pitched better than he did in his last start, when he allowed eight runs (six earned) in 2.1 innings against the Twins. However, the veteran was still relatively ineffective.

Facing Minnesota for the second straight outing, the veteran needed 70 pitches (41 strikes) to record just seven outs, and the only bright spot in this latest disaster for Jackson was that he managed to keep the ball in the yard. He's now saddled with a 9.35 ERA and 39:25 K:BB through 52 innings on the year, and while his next turn in the rotation is set for Wednesday in Kansas City, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him bumped aside for a September callup.
