Free-agent reliever Jay Jackson and the Minnesota Twins are in agreement on a major-league contract, pending physical, according to Robert Murray of FanSided.
Jackson, 36, is a five-year veteran who has spent time with San Francisco, Atlanta, San Diego, Milwaukee, and most recently Toronto. Jackson has yet to catch on anywhere for longer than one year.
Last season in Toronto, Jackson made a positive impact and impressed along the way. Across 29.2 innings, Jackson pitched to an impressive 2.12 ERA. Being a reliable option out of the bullpen, gives him another chance in the big leagues.
Minnesota finished right in the middle of the league in bullpen ERA last season with a 3.95 ERA. The hope for Jay Jackson and the Twins, is that Minnesota might be the place that Jackson finds a permanent home with.
