Jackson will play with his 13th major league team, which ties former reliever Octavio Dotel's record. 

This season, Jackson was in the Nationals' system but didn't pitch in the majors. He opted out with Washington and then signed a deal with the A's in June. The righthander made three starts with Triple A Nashville, going 0–1 with a 4.02 ERA.

The 34-year-old went 5–6 with a 5.21 ERA last year for the Orioles and the Nationals. He has a career 4.67 ERA.

Jackson made his debut in 2003 for the Dodgers. Jackson has also played with the Rays, Tigers, Diamondbacks, White Sox, Cardinals, Cubs, Braves, Marlins and Padres.
