Rays' Alex Jackson: Dealt to Tampa Bay
Jackson was traded from the Brewers to the Rays on Tuesday in exchange for Evan McKendry, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
A 27-year-old catcher who has settled in as an emergency option, at least while with the Brewers, Jackson has been at Triple-A Nashville all season and is slashing .286/.360/.554 with 12 home runs in 45 games. At this point, Jackson doesn't look to be much more than a Quad-A hitter who's capable of defending his position.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Alex Jackson: Optioned to MiLB camp
Jackson was reassigned Monday to minor-league camp, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Jackson spent five games with the Brewers in 2022 and went 3-for-12 with seven strikeouts at the dish. He'll more than likely begin the 2023 campaign at Triple-A Nashville and serve as organizational depth in case either William Contreras or Victor Caratini goes down.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Alex Jackson: Outrighted to Triple-A
Jackson was sent outright to Triple-A Nashville on Friday, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Jackson will still be invited to spring training by Milwaukee, but he will now have to fight to reclaim his spot on the 40-man roster. The 26-year-old backstop spent most of last season in Triple-A, recording a .701 OPS through 119 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Alex Jackson: Back on 40-man roster
The Brewers reinstated Jackson (wrist) from the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports.
The transaction makes Jackson one of three catchers on the 40-man roster, joining Victor Caratini and Mario Feliciano. With Omar Narvaez ticketed for free agency, Milwaukee will likely look to re-sign him or add another experienced option behind the plate, so Jackson is far from a lock to break camp with Milwaukee in 2023. Before he was shut down in late August with left wrist inflammation, Jackson appeared in just five games for Milwaukee and instead saw most of his action at Triple-A Nashville, where he posted a .701 OPS over 119 plate appearances....

Brewers' Alex Jackson: Placed on 60-day IL
Jackson was placed on the 60-day injured list with left wrist inflammation Saturday.
Jackson hasn't played at Triple-A Nashville since Aug. 11, and he'll be unavailable for the remainder of the minor-league season after landing on the 60-day IL. The 26-year-old slashed .225/.319/.382 with two home runs, a triple, eight doubles, 18 RBI, nine runs and a stolen base over 31 games at Nashville this year.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Alex Jackson: Activated and optioned
The Brewers reinstated Jackson (finger) from the 10-day injured list Sunday and optioned him to Triple-A Nashville.
Milwaukee already has three catchers on its 26-man active roster (Omar Narvaez, Victor Caratini and Pedro Severino), so Jackson won't join the big club even though he's made a full recovery from the left middle finger sprain that landed him on the IL on June 10. Jackson recently wrapped a five-game rehab assignment between the Brewers' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate and Nashville, during which he went 3-for-9 with a double, five walks and a run scored....

Jackson (finger) began a rehab assignment Saturday with the Brewers' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate, going 1-for-1 with a double, a walk and a run.
Jackson started at catcher but played only three innings before his day was done. He'll likely make several more starts behind the dish in the minors before the Brewers activate him from the 10-day injured list.... See More ... See Less

Brewers' Alex Jackson: Called up by Milwaukee
Jackson was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Friday.
Jackson was optioned to Nashville at the beginning of May, but he'll serve as the No. 2 catcher behind Victor Caratini while Omar Narvaez is on the COVID-19 injured list. Jackson appeared in three games during his first stint with the major-league club, and he went 2-for-7 with four strikeouts.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Alex Jackson: Returns to Triple-A
Jackson was optioned to Triple-A Nashville after Sunday's 2-0 loss to the Cubs.

Brewers' Alex Jackson: Receives call-up
The Brewers recalled Jackson from Triple-A Nashville on Tuesday.
Jackson will step in as the Brewers' No. 2 catcher behind Omar Narvaez after top backup Victor Caratini was placed on the COVID-19 injured list in a corresponding move. The righty-hitting Caratini had been occupying the short side of a platoon with the lefty-hitting Narvaez, but it's not clear if the righty-hitting Jackson will be extended the same role or play only when Narvaez needs a breather behind the plate....

Brewers' Alex Jackson: Traded to Milwaukee
Jackson was acquired by the Brewers from the Marlins on Wednesday in exchange for infielder Hayden Cantrelle and pitcher Alexis Ramirez.
Backup catcher Pedro Severino will miss 80 games after testing positive for a banned substance, so the Brewers traded for Victor Caratini and Jackson on Wednesday. Caratini will handle backup duties behind starter Omar Narvaez, while Jackson should head to Triple-A Nashville. Jackson had a .488 OPS in 52 games between Atlanta and Miami last year and could be called up by Milwaukee if Narvaez or Caratini suffer an injury.... See More ... See Less
