Biographical Information[edit]

Pitcher Andre Jackson made his major league debut with the Los Angeles Dodgers during the 2021 season, pitching three times in relief. He had been drafted by the Dodgers in the 12th round of the 2017 amateur draft, out of the University of Utah, three years after being drafted a first time coming out of high school in the 32nd round of the 2014 amateur draft by the Texas Rangers. In between, he had been a two-way player his first two years in college, also playing the outfield, and had undergone Tommy John surgery, missing all of the 2017 season. Although a reliever in college, he was used almost exclusively as a starter in the minor leagues, going 7-2, 3.06 in 25 starts between two teams in 2019. After being forced to sit out the 2020 season when the COVID-19 pandemic shut down the minor leagues, he was 5-5, 3.87 pitching at three different levels in 2021 before getting the call to Dodger Stadium in mid-August. He gave up 3 runs in 11 2/3 innings for an ERA of 2.31 and was charged with a defeat in his first taste of the big leagues.

In 2022, he had a rough year with the AAA Oklahoma City Dodgers, going 2-7, 5.00 in 21 games (19 starts) with 61 walks in 75 233 innings. In spite of these struggles, he still received another look at the top level, pitching 9 2/3 innings over 4 outings for L.A., with 4 walks and 9 Ks. In 2023, he moved to the bullpen, going 0-0, 6.62 in 7 games for the Dodgers, and then 1-1, 5.86 in 11 games for Oklahoma City. On June 25th, the Pittsburgh Pirates purchased his contract from L.A. and got him back into starting. With the AAA Indianapolis Indians, he went 0-0 3.38 in 5 games, 3 of them starts, but totaling just 10 2/3 innings. He was then called up to Pittsburgh where he started a major league game for the first time on August 13th against the Cincinnati Reds. Two weeks later, he earned his first major league win when he defeated the Kansas City Royals, 4-1, on August 30th, giving up just 1 run on 2 hits in 5 2/3 innings.
