Roster Updates: Ryan Jackson Claimed, Adam Moore Walks


Monday posed a deadline for new San Diego Padres’ GM A.J. Preller to get his roster cleaned up and in order. Several pieces moved around, highlighted by Eric Stults and Donn Roach being designated for assignment off the big league roster. Today, two pieces that are smaller in terms of importance, have new paths for which their career will take them.

In his first official player move, new Los Angeles Dodgers’ man in charge, Andrew Friedman, claimed Padres’ minor league infielder Ryan Jackson off of waivers earlier today. Jackson played in only 11 games this season before going down for the remainder of the year with wrist surgery. He was 2009 fifth round draft selection out of the University of Miami (FL) by the Cardinals. He has a career .268 minor league average and has spent most of his time playing shortstop.

Moore previously spent time in the big leagues with the AL Champion Kansas City Royals and the Seattle Mariners.
