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.
