Jackson will receive an annual salary of $3 million this season and $6.5 million in the 2024 season. There is a team option for the 2025 season, so if San Francisco wants to extend the contract, he will receive a salary of $7 million. If the contract is not extended, Jackson will receive a $2 million buyout and become a free agent.

Jackson, who made his big league debut with the Texas Rangers in 2015, began to blossom after transferring to the Atlanta Braves at the end of the following year.

Jackson, who has increased the number of games since 2017, played an active role as the team’s winning team in 2019 with 9 wins, 2 losses, 9 holds, 18 saves, and an average ERA of 3.84. In 2021, he also contributed to the team’s World Series victory with an outstanding performance of 2 wins, 2 losses and 31 holds with an earned run average of 1.98.

However, Jackson missed the entire season after undergoing elbow ligament surgery in April of last year. Afterwards, he came on the market as a free agent, but he was looking for a comeback all season while looking for a new team.
