JAY JACKSON JETTISONED TO ATLANTA
The Atlanta Braves acquired pitcher Jay Jackson from the San Francisco Giants for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
What does it give the Atlanta Braves
In Jackson, the Braves get a pretty good arm out of the bullpen who can strike plenty of batters out. Control has been the issue for him so far in his MLB career.
What does it give the San Francisco Giants
The Giants obviously did not see enough long-range upside in the 34-year-old Jackson to keep him around. They will not get back much in return.
There is little fantasy value in Jackson at this time. He might be an in-season reliever to watch, however.
