Player Outlook
Alex Jackson spent all 2023 in Triple-A, first with Triple-A Nashville, and then with Triple-A Durham after the Brewers exchanged minor leaguers with the Rays who sent Evan McKendry to the Milwaukee organization. Jackson has spent parts of four seasons in the majors, with his longest stint in 2021 when he posted an anemic .488 OPS in 52 games. Last season in 59 combined games, Jackson recorded a .902 OPS, which impressed the Rays enough to bring him back on a minor league deal. Jackson missed the final month of the season with a shoulder injury, but he's slated to challenge for a job behind the plate with the Rays. If he makes the club, Jackson is only in play in AL-only formats using two catchers, and even then, there are probably better options.

  • Rays' Alex Jackson: Misses out on Opening Day roster

    The Rays will reassign Jackson to the minors prior to Thursday's season opener versus the Blue Jays, Steve Carney of StPeteNine.com reports. Among the internal options the Rays had at spring training, Jackson appeared well positioned to make the Opening Day roster as the No. 2 catcher behind Rene Pinto, but Jackson dropped a spot on the organizational depth chart after Tampa Bay acquired Ben Rortvedt from the Yankees on Wednesday. Unless he opts out of his minor-league deal, Jackson is expected to open the season as the primary backstop for Triple-A Durham.

  • Rays' Alex Jackson: Looks to have made roster

    Jackson is in line to begin the regular season as the Rays' backup catcher, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The Rays informed Rob Brantly and Francisco Mejia that they didn't make the Opening Day roster, leaving Jackson as the choice to back up Rene Pinto. Jackson has had a poor spring training, striking out 35.5 percent of the time with only one extra-base hit across 31 plate appearances. Nevertheless, he's in line to get his first taste of the majors since 2022.

  • Rays' Alex Jackson: Struggling in exhibition action

    Jackson has a .325 OPS while striking out seven times across 19 plate appearances in Grapefruit League action. Jackson entered spring training as the favorite to win the backup catcher job, though his performance to this point hasn't helped his cause. The team has also since added Francisco Mejia on a minor-league deal, so Jackson may no longer be in the picture for a roster spot to begin the regular season.

  • Rays' Alex Jackson: Healthy for spring training

    Jackson (shoulder) will start at catcher and bat seventh in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Blue Jays, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Jackson will pick up his second start behind the dish this spring after he went 1-for-2 with a base hit while catching four innings against the Tigers on Sunday. After being acquired in a trade from the Brewers on Aug. 1, Jackson appeared in 14 games at Triple-A Durham before being shut down for the final month of the season due to a right shoulder injury. Now healthy again and attending big-league camp as a non-roster invitee, Jackson will look to win a spot on the Rays' Opening Day roster as a reserve backstop.

  • Rays' Alex Jackson: Re-signs with Rays

    The Rays re-signed Jackson (shoulder) to a minor-league contract Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The deal presumably includes an invitation to spring training. Jackson hit four homers in 14 games with Triple-A Durham this season after being acquired from the Brewers but missed the last several weeks of the season with a right shoulder injury. If healthy, he gives the Rays an option to pair with Rene Pinto at catcher.

  • Rays' Alex Jackson: Dealt to Tampa Bay

    Jackson was traded from the Brewers to the Rays on Tuesday in exchange for Evan McKendry, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. A 27-year-old catcher who has settled in as an emergency option, at least while with the Brewers, Jackson has been at Triple-A Nashville all season and is slashing .286/.360/.554 with 12 home runs in 45 games. At this point, Jackson doesn't look to be much more than a Quad-A hitter who's capable of defending his position.

  • Brewers' Alex Jackson: Optioned to MiLB camp

    Jackson was reassigned Monday to minor-league camp, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Jackson spent five games with the Brewers in 2022 and went 3-for-12 with seven strikeouts at the dish. He'll more than likely begin the 2023 campaign at Triple-A Nashville and serve as organizational depth in case either William Contreras or Victor Caratini goes down.

  • Brewers' Alex Jackson: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Jackson was sent outright to Triple-A Nashville on Friday, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Jackson will still be invited to spring training by Milwaukee, but he will now have to fight to reclaim his spot on the 40-man roster. The 26-year-old backstop spent most of last season in Triple-A, recording a .701 OPS through 119 plate appearances.

  • Brewers' Alex Jackson: Back on 40-man roster

    The Brewers reinstated Jackson (wrist) from the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. The transaction makes Jackson one of three catchers on the 40-man roster, joining Victor Caratini and Mario Feliciano. With Omar Narvaez ticketed for free agency, Milwaukee will likely look to re-sign him or add another experienced option behind the plate, so Jackson is far from a lock to break camp with Milwaukee in 2023. Before he was shut down in late August with left wrist inflammation, Jackson appeared in just five games for Milwaukee and instead saw most of his action at Triple-A Nashville, where he posted a .701 OPS over 119 plate appearances.

  • Brewers' Alex Jackson: Placed on 60-day IL

    Jackson was placed on the 60-day injured list with left wrist inflammation Saturday. Jackson hasn't played at Triple-A Nashville since Aug. 11, and he'll be unavailable for the remainder of the minor-league season after landing on the 60-day IL. The 26-year-old slashed .225/.319/.382 with two home runs, a triple, eight doubles, 18 RBI, nine runs and a stolen base over 31 games at Nashville this year.

  • Brewers' Alex Jackson: Activated and optioned

    The Brewers reinstated Jackson (finger) from the 10-day injured list Sunday and optioned him to Triple-A Nashville. Milwaukee already has three catchers on its 26-man active roster (Omar Narvaez, Victor Caratini and Pedro Severino), so Jackson won't join the big club even though he's made a full recovery from the left middle finger sprain that landed him on the IL on June 10. Jackson recently wrapped a five-game rehab assignment between the Brewers' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate and Nashville, during which he went 3-for-9 with a double, five walks and a run scored.

  • Brewers' Alex Jackson: Kicks off rehab assignment

    Jackson (finger) began a rehab assignment Saturday with the Brewers' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate, going 1-for-1 with a double, a walk and a run. Jackson started at catcher but played only three innings before his day was done. He'll likely make several more starts behind the dish in the minors before the Brewers activate him from the 10-day injured list.

  • Brewers' Alex Jackson: Placed on 10-day IL

    Jackson (finger) was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday, retroactive to June 7. Jackson is dealing with a left middle finger sprain and will now be inactive for about a week as he nurses the injury. Omar Narvaez was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Friday, making it likely that Jackson reports to Triple-A Nashville once healthy.

  • Brewers' Alex Jackson: Called up by Milwaukee

    Jackson was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Friday. Jackson was optioned to Nashville at the beginning of May, but he'll serve as the No. 2 catcher behind Victor Caratini while Omar Narvaez is on the COVID-19 injured list. Jackson appeared in three games during his first stint with the major-league club, and he went 2-for-7 with four strikeouts.

  • Brewers' Alex Jackson: Returns to Triple-A

    Jackson was optioned to Triple-A Nashville after Sunday's 2-0 loss to the Cubs. The 26-year-old served as Milwaukee's No. 2 catcher this week but will head back to the minors with Victor Caratini (undisclosed) back from the COVID-19 injured list. Jackson went 2-for-7 with four strikeouts during his brief stint in the majors.

  • Brewers' Alex Jackson: Traded to Milwaukee

    Jackson was acquired by the Brewers from the Marlins on Wednesday in exchange for infielder Hayden Cantrelle and pitcher Alexis Ramirez. Backup catcher Pedro Severino will miss 80 games after testing positive for a banned substance, so the Brewers traded for Victor Caratini and Jackson on Wednesday. Caratini will handle backup duties behind starter Omar Narvaez, while Jackson should head to Triple-A Nashville. Jackson had a .488 OPS in 52 games between Atlanta and Miami last year and could be called up by Milwaukee if Narvaez or Caratini suffer an injury.

  • Marlins' Alex Jackson: Sent to Triple-A

    Jackson was optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville on Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Jackson made three Grapefruit League appearances this spring and went 0-for-5 with a walk and a strikeout. Since Jackson and Nick Fortes were both sent down Saturday, it appears as though Payton Henry will begin the year as the primary backup at catcher.

  • Marlins' Alex Jackson: Retreats to bench

    Jackson isn't starting Monday's game against the Nationals. Jackson started Sunday's series finale against the Pirates and went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts. Payton Henry will start behind the plate and bat seventh.

  • Marlins' Alex Jackson: Not in Friday's lineup

    Jackson isn't starting Friday against the Phillies, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Jackson will be out of the lineup for a fourth consecutive game as Jorge Alfaro appears to have taken over once again as Miami's primary catcher. Alfaro will start behind the dish and bat sixth.

  • Marlins' Alex Jackson: Retreats to bench

    Jackson isn't starting Thursday's game against the Mets, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Jackson will be excluded from the starting nine for a third straight game while Jorge Alfaro catches right-hander Sandy Alcantara. The 25-year-old has gone 1-for-7 with a walk and two strikeouts across his last three appearances.
