Latest Update Jackson Tallies RBI, SB In Victory Tue Sep, 09, 04:16 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.
Jackson has been hitting better of late, going 10-for-34 (.294 BA) with five RBI over his last seven games as he tries to get himself back up to speed since joining the Mariners at the trade deadline. He is now sitting on a .269 average with four home runs, 44 RBI and 16 steals through 521 at-bats between the Tigers and the Mariners and should remain a low-end fantasy outfielder the rest of the way.

Jackson is now 11-for-29 (.379 BA) with three RBI over his last six games as he pick up the pace for the stretch run. Since joining the Mariners at the trade deadline, Jackson is now slashing .264/.305/.314 with zero home runs, nine RBI and six stolen bases, so until he his hits starts translating into fantasy production there are better alternatives to insert into starting lineups moving forward.

It hasn't been the best experience for Jackson since being dealt to the Mariners, as he is now slashing .228/.282/.278 with just four extra-base hits and seven RBI over his last 79 at-bats. Moving to Seattle has done similar things to hitters over the years, but as far as Jackson is concerned it is only the icing on what has become a down year. Until he shows more consistency, fantasy owners are better off turning to a more productive alternative. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Heading into Tuesday's action, Jackson was hitting a mere .227 with just two extra-base hits and five RBI since joining the Mariners as he continues to have a down season. However, he was able to flash some speed for the first time since being dealt, so hopefully now he will be used more often on the base paths to give his fantasy owners at least a little something to be happy about down the stretch.
