Jackson, 36, pitched for a record 14 MLB teams in his career. It was acquired by the Diamondbacks in December 2009 during the exchange that sent Max Scherzer to the Detroit Tigers.

He started a hitting game against Tampa Bay on June 25, 2020, throwing 149 shots in stride.

The D-Backs initially acquired Jay, 34, from the Royals in June 2018, and spent the rest of the season with the club, reaching 0.235 / .304 / .325 with two homers in 84 games. He joined the White Sox in 2019 and placed a similar cut line in 47 games while losing considerable time with tension in his right hip.

Hicks, 30, has spent a great deal of time with the Tigers in each of the past three years, splitting time between the receiver and the first base.

Thompson, 28, has spent sporadic time in the big leagues with the White Sox, Dodgers and athletics since 2015. However, he did not appear in the majors last year, playing 89 games for the Affiliate Triple-A of the Indians and hitting .219 / .294 / .482 with 24 circuits in 89 games.
