Latest Update Austin Jackson racking up the multi-hit games of late Fri Jul, 25, 02:38 AM
A superb all-round athlete with good size, he can fly around the bases, has great range in the outfield with a good glove and hits for a good average. Has a solid arm and some home-run power.
Flaws: : Swings at too many bad pitches, leading to big strikeout totals. As a result, he has had to shorten his swing so he may not produce as much power as a result. Should steal more but is hesitant on the bases.
AJax has multiple hits now in seven straight games and 10 of his last 11. Jackson's hot hitting goes beyond that as he is hitting .317 (32-for-101) over his last 25 games after going through a two-plus month cold stretch. Analyst: Michael Pichan
Jackson is not hitting .362 for the month of July and his two hits make it six straight multiple hit games and nine of his last ten. Overall Jackson's average now sits at .270 with 51 runs. four home runs, 31 RBI and nine stolen bases.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
The Tigers are currently getting a ton of production from their outfielders with JD Martinez, Torii Hunter and Rajai Davis also performing at a high level. Overall Jackson is having a sub par season hitting just .266 with 47 runs, four home runs, 28 RBI and nine stolen bases.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Working out of the leadoff spot continues to agree with Jackson who is now batting .333 with a home run and six RBI when he's atop the order. He's also got seven doubles and two triples from up there. It's easily where he is most productive this year. We'll see how long Brad Ausmus leaves him there as fantasy owners hope the stolen bases will start to pick up soon as well.Analyst: Howard Bender
