Biographical Information[edit]

Luke Jackson was a supplemental first-round pick in the 2010 amateur draft.

Jackson throws a fastball (91-96 mph) and an inconsistent curveball. Jackson had a commitment to the University of Miami when the Texas Rangers chose him 45th overall in the 2010 draft; the pick was compensation for the loss of Ivan Rodriguez to free agency. He was the third of four Texas first-rounders, after position players Jake Skole and Kellin Deglan and before position player Mike Olt. Jackson made his pro debut in 2011 with the Hickory Crawdads.

On December 8, 2016, Jackson was traded to the Atlanta Braves in return for two other pitchers, Tyrell Jenkins and Brady Feigl.
