Professional careerEdit

Jackson played amateur baseball for Westminster Academy,[1] Gulliver Preparatory,[2] and Florida Christian School[3] before being drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals in the fifth round of the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft out of the University of Miami.[4][5]

Jackson was called up to the majors for the first time on August 10, 2012 and he made his debut the next day, as the starting second baseman against the Philadelphia Phillies.[6] He was hitless in three at-bats. His first MLB hit was a single to right field off Dallas Keuchel of the Houston Astros in a pinch-hit appearance on August 23.[7] He had two hits in 17 at-bats that year and was hitless in seven at-bats the next season. He spent most of both seasons in AAA with the Memphis Redbirds.

Jackson was claimed off waivers by the Astros on November 20, 2013.[8][9] A month later, on December 18, 2013, he was traded to the San Diego Padres in exchange for Jesús Guzmán.[10][11] He played in only 11 games in 2013, split between the Arizona League Padres and the AAA El Paso Chihuahuas as a result of wrist surgery.[12]

He was claimed off waivers by the Los Angeles Dodgers on November 3, 2014[13] and then designated for assignment by the Dodgers on November 24.[14] On November 26, the Dodgers traded him to the Kansas City Royals for cash considerations.[15][16]

Jackson was traded to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for Drew Butera on May 7, 2015.[17]

Jackson signed a minor league contract with the Philadelphia Phillies in November 2015.[18] He was acquired by the Angels once again on May 20, 2016, and was released on August 10.[19][20] On January 3, 2017, Jackson was signed by the Marlins to a minor league deal.[21] He was released on April 24, 2017. [22]

On June 1, 2017, Jackson signed a minor league deal with the Seattle Mariners. [23]

On July 3, 2017, Jackson signed a minor league deal with the Washington Nationals.
