The Braves make a flurry of roster moves, including a trade with the Giants

The Braves have made a handful of roster moves, including acquiring RHP Jay Jackson from the San Francisco Giants.

I’m kind of shocked that Yoan López never got a shot with the Braves, especially when the team was scrambling for bullpen help. The Braves traded for López in May of 2021, but he did not make an appearance with the big league club.

Jay Jackson was drafted back in 2008 out of Furman, and he has primarily been a career minor-leaguer. Jackson did appear for the Giants in 2021, posting a respectable 3.74 ERA and 4.05 FIP over 21.2 innings pitched. Jackson had a few hiccup games, but he only gave up more than one earned run twice over 23 appearances. He’s a very good pickup. I’m not sure what Jackson’s role will be, but he can be valuable depth in Gwinnett at worst.
