Brewers Acquire Jay Jackson From the Pirates

The Pittsburgh Pirates have traded pitcher Jay Jackson to the Milwaukee Brewers for cash considerations. The 26-year-old right-hander has pitched all season at Indianapolis, posting a 4.89 ERA over 84.2 innings. Jackson was signed as a minor league free agent in the off-season. He has been used in both relief and as a starter, making 12 starts and 13 relief appearances. He has 87 strikeouts, a .270 BAA and an 0.65 GO/AO ratio.

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball.

When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.

Agreed! It is quite pathetic to see sometimes.

Nonevent. No one should care other then Jackson.

I guess this is the first indicator that we’ve given up on the season and are now sellers! 🙂


Brewers probably need Jackson for AAA depth since they promoted someone to take Garza’s place. BUT… if somehow Jackson ends up beating the Bucs in a game in September, you know Neal will never hear the end of this. Especially since it was just for cash.


Fair response. But do note the Bucs have also failed against a few September callups in recent past.


I hope they DO bring him up. The guy has a 4.89 ERA in AAA.


Why not get our rule 5 pitcher back in this deal ??? That is if the rules permit that kind of move….

Lee Young

that ship has sailed…plus Jackson NE Wang


Yes, but why give him to the first place team in your division who just put one of their starters on the DL? There was no other team they could give him to?


I agree with you smurph. Why do you trade a serviceable (?) pitcher to your competition for basically nothing?


Because he’s serviceable only at the AAA level. This deal is completely irrelevant to the major league teams.
