Player Outlook
Jay Jackson is a journeyman who has pitched for six teams and two leagues (two stints in Japan) in the past six years. He finally found some stability in the majors last season with Toronto where he had a decent 23.3% K% and 7.8% BB% in 29.2 innings. Despite a 2.12 ERA he was left off the playoff roster for the Blue Jays. The Twins apparently believed in his success because he signed a major league deal. He'll compete for a spot in the bullpen this spring.

  • Twins' Jay Jackson: Gets designated for assignment

    Jackson was designated for assignment by the Twins on Sunday. The veteran reliever will be removed from the 40-man roster to free up space for right-hander Caleb Boushley, who was recalled by Minnesota in a corresponding move. Jackson will likely pitch for Minnesota's Triple-A affiliate in St. Paul if not picked up by another team.

  • Twins' Jay Jackson: Throws two scoreless innings

    Jackson allowed two hits with no walks while striking out two over two scoreless innings in Saturday's 16-5 win over the Angels. Jackson has an impressive 17:5 K:BB ratio in 14.2 innings, but has given up three home runs helping result in a mediocre 4.30 ERA. He's become a steady option in middle relief, but he isn't being used in enough high-leverage spots to accumulate many holds or save chances.

  • Twins' Jay Jackson: Signing with Minnesota

    Jackson agreed to a contract with the Twins on Sunday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports. Jackson was outrighted to Triple-A by the Blue Jays in early October and elected free agency in November. He was able to land a major-league contract with Minnesota just before the start of spring training and will now attempt to carve out a role in the Twins' bullpen. He's made appearances with San Francisco, Atlanta and Toronto over the past three seasons, posting a 2.73 ERA and 1.04 ERA in 52.2 innings over 50 outings.

  • Jay Jackson: Elects free agency

    Jackson elected to become a free agent Thursday. Jackson was removed from the Blue Jays' 40-man roster last month and has now formally rejected an outright assignment to Triple-A Buffalo. The 36-year-old right-hander should draw a decent amount of interest on the open market this winter after working to a 2.12 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 27:9 K:BB over 29.2 innings of relief with Toronto in 2023.

  • Blue Jays' Jay Jackson: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Jackson cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports. It's a little surprising to see Jackson pass through waivers unclaimed after he held a 2.12 ERA, 0.91 WHIP with 27 strikeouts in 29.2 innings this season. As it is, he'll be part of the Blue Jays' AL Wild Card Series taxi squad, hanging around and working out in case he's needed as an injury replacement.

  • Blue Jays' Jay Jackson: Collects second win

    Jackson (2-0) picked up the win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday, striking out one in a perfect inning of relief. Yusei Kikuchi ran up his pitch count and left the game after 4.2 innings with the score tied, and Jackson wound up as the pitcher of record after replacing him when the Jays took the lead for good in the bottom of the fifth. The 35-year-old has been excellent in a low-leverage role for Toronto, posting a 1.00 ERA, 0.56 WHIP and 9:2 K:BB in nine innings over seven appearances this season.
