There is a new Dodger to announce: Ryan Jackson.

The team claimed the 26-year-old infielder, who is 2 for 24 with a walk in his MLB career, from San Diego and added him to the 40-man roster.

Jackson had his best minor-league season in 2011 with the Cardinals’ Double-A team in Springfield, posting a .334 on-base percentage and .415 slugging percentage.

Note: If you’ve never really seen MLB’s authentication process at work, the video of Jackson’s first career big-league hit above will show it to you. An interview with his parents on the day of his MLB debut is below.

  1. Don’t get why the Dodgers are wasting a 40 man spot on him. The Dodgers already have Gordon, Uribe, Turner, Barney, Arby, Guerrero and Rojas on the 40 man, 7 spots for 3 positions, and maybe not a starting SS in the bunch.
