Royals acquire infielder Ryan Jackson from the Dodgers for cash considerations

KANSAS CITY, MO (November 26, 2014) - The Kansas City Royals announced today that they have acquired infielder Ryan Jackson from the Los Angeles Dodgers for cash considerations.

Jackson, 26, was claimed off by the Dodgers on November 3 from the San Diego Padres, but was designated for assignment on Monday. He missed most of the 2014 season with a right wrist injury. The shortstop played in six games at Triple-A El Paso, going 3-for-16 (.188) with a double and five walks. He also played in five games on his rehab assignment with the Padres' Arizona Rookie League team. A fifth-round draft pick by the St. Louis Cardinals in 2009, Jackson had a pair of Major League stints with St. Louis in 2012 and 2013, playing in 20 games for the Cardinals. He batted .278 with 19 doubles, a triple, three homers and 49 runs scored in 121 games for Triple-A Memphis in 2013, also drawing 52 walks for a .352 on-base percentage.
