Jackson, who was acquired from the Rangers in December, allowed three runs over 4 1/3 innings for Gwinnett. He had a 9.00 ERA and a 3.00 WHIP in four innings this spring. He throws hard and he could develop into a quality reliever at some point, but we doubt that time is now.

Braves acquired RHP Luke Jackson from the Rangers for RHP Tyrell Jenkins and LHP Brady Feigl.

Jackson has thrown 18 major-league innings over the past two seasons with an 8.50 ERA. The 25-year-old reliever throws hard and racked up lots of strikeouts in the minor leagues but struggled with his control. The Braves are likely to use him as a middle reliever if he makes the team at all. His high strikeout rate gives him the potential to move into a higher leverage role if he can limit the walks.
