This offseason has featured a handful of notable departures for the Atlanta Braves. One recent loss was reliever Austin Jackson, who played a pivotal role during Atlanta's World Series run in 2021.

After his signing with the San Francisco Giants was made official, Jackson penned an emotional goodbye tweet to Braves fans.

The lefty reliever said his six years in Atlanta were "magical." Jackson made sure to extend his love to the entire Braves organization and the fans that were part of a special playoff run.

No one would expect anything less from the classy veteran. He essentially grew up in Atlanta, going from minimal usage over his first two years with the Texas Rangers to a featured role in the Braves' bullpen for five seasons. Jackson noted his time was a "roller coaster" as he figured out his place in the majors, but it paid off in a huge way with a ring in 2021.

The last time Jackson was on the mound was that championship-winning campaign, as Tommy John surgery forced the reliever to miss the entire 2022 season. He'll look to regain his form with the Giants in 2023.
