    The Texas Rangers and Atlanta Braves have completed a trade involving three young pitchers.

    AL West champion Texas on Thursday acquired right-hander Tyrell Jenkins and minor league left-hander Brady Feigl from the Braves in exchange for right-hander Luke Jackson.

    Jenkins, a 24-year-old who made his major league debut with 14 appearances for the Braves last season, was put on the Rangers' 40-man roster.

    Feigl, who turns 26 later this month, spent all of 2016 on the disabled list at Triple-A Gwinnett while recovering from Tommy John surgery in April 2015. The Rangers assigned him to their Double-A Frisco roster.

    Jackson pitched for the Rangers in each of the last two seasons. The 25-year-old righty has allowed 17 earned runs over 18 innings in 15 career appearances in the majors.
