The Minnesota Twins have agreed to a major league contract with former SF Giants and Toronto Blue Jays relief pitcher Jay Jackson, according to a report by FanSided’s MLB insider Robert Murray. While the terms were not reported, it is presumably a one-year contract. Nevertheless, since he is out of minor-league options, Jackson will be  guaranteed a full MLB salary if he passes his physical and the deal gets finalized.

Jackson spent the entire 2023 season in the Toronto Blue Jays organization. Jackson appeared in 25 big-league games, recording a 2.12 ERA (4.20 FIP) with 27 strikeouts and nine walks in 29.2 innings pitched. He did post a 6.27 ERA at Triple-A, but he racked up some impressive strikeout (43) and walk (7) tallies.
