The Pirates have acquired right-handed reliever Andre Jackson from the Los Angeles Dodgers for cash considerations per a team release.

Andre Jackson, 27, has spent his entire pro-career with the Dodgers and was drafted in the 12th round in 2017.

Designated for assignment Tuesday, he’s struggled this year with an ERA of 6.62 across 17.2 innings pitched.

Jackson has been optioned to AAA Indianapolis.

To make room on the 40-man roster infielder Mark Mathias has been designated for assignment.
