Profile: At this point in his career, Jackson is unlikely to find a job in any team's starting rotation. The 33-year-old free agent pitcher recorded earned run averages of 4.98, 6.33, and 5.89 in his last three seasons as a starter. Sandwiched in between those seasons was a 2015 season in which Jackson appeared solely out of the bullpen, and pitched pretty well. I'm not sure Jackson has a major league future, as he simply walks far too many batters to be worth deploying, but if he does, it's probably in middle relief. (Scott Strandberg)

The Quick Opinion: Even if he latches on with a major league club — which is a big if — Jackson is highly unlikely to be a fantasy asset in 2017.
