SF signs ‘veteran bullpen’ Luke Jackson… “Returning midway through Tommy John surgery rehabilitation”

San Francisco acquired veteran right-hander Luke Jackson (31).

The San Francisco Giants announced on the 10th (Korean time), “San Francisco and right-handed pitcher Jackson have agreed to a two-year contract.” The US’MLB.com’ said, “San Francisco has strengthened its bullpen by signing a two-year, $11.5 million (approximately 14.2 billion won) contract with Jackson, including a club option for the 2025 season.”

According to ‘MLB.com’, Jackson will receive $3 million (about 3.7 billion won) in 2023 and $6.5 million (about 8 billion won) in 2024. The 2025 club option is worth $7 million. If San Francisco does not want to re-sign Jackson, Jackson will receive a $2 million buyout.

Jackson was selected by the Texas Rangers with the 45th overall pick in the 2010 draft. He made his first major league appearance in Texas during the 2015 season. He then played for Texas until the 2016 season, then wore the Atlanta Braves uniform through a trade. 메이저사이트

I only played 15 games in two seasons at Texas, but I was able to play a lot in Atlanta and had one of my best seasons in 2021. He played in 71 games in the 2021 season, posting an earned run average of 1.98 with 31 holds, 63⅔ innings, and 15 runs (14 earned). In the postseason National League Championship Series, it was sluggish with an average ERA of 27.00 in 4 games, 1⅔ innings, 5 runs (5 earned runs), but the team advanced to the World Series, and in the World Series, it recorded 2 holds without giving up runs in 3 games and 3⅔ innings. Atlanta defeated the Houston Astros to win the World Series.

However, his physical condition has not been good since last season’s spring camp. Tests revealed that he had to have Tommy John surgery and he blew out an entire season. ‘MLB.com’ said, “Jackson continues to rehabilitate. He may not be able to play at the start of the regular season. But if he returns, he should bring a lot of experience to the San Francisco bullpen.”
