AUSTIN JACKSON RUMORS

Indians Confound Again by Passing on Austin Jackson

In the event you missed it earlier this week, veteran center fielder Austin Jackson is now a member of the Chicago White Sox. And while no one is suggesting the 29-year-old was one of the big “gets” of the offseason, the truth is that — for a paltry $5 million (chicken feed by today’s increasingly insane standards) — one of the Cleveland Indians’ division rivals just...

Fangraphs gives Indians’ offseason a “C”, urges signing of Austin Jackson

While Juan Uribe, Rajai Davis and Mike Napoli are upgrades at positions of need, Fangraphs believes that the Cleveland Indians squandered a massive opportunity to capitalize on their strengths in pitching at defense. In their recent piece which graded the offseasons (thus far) of every MLB team, the Tribe comes in toward the bottom at No. 22 with a grade of C—assuming they sign...

Seattle Mariners: Projecting the Starting Lineup

1. Austin Jackson Jackson was acquired at the trade deadline in the three-team deal that sent David Price from the Tampa Bay Rays to the Detroit Tigers. Jackson is one of the top defensive outfielders in all of baseball, but his above average hitting sometimes gets overlooked. He struggled mightily at times after arriving in Seattle last July. Look for Jackson to bounce back and...

Silver lining? Not for Tigers' Jackson

Now you can't judge a suit by its cover, either. Tigers right fielder Austin Jackson proved that Thursday at Comerica Park, where he loudly showed off the unique lining of his suit coat before an afternoon game at Comerica Park. Teammate J.D. Martinez captured the moment on video and posted it on Instagram.   Hopefully for the Tigers, Jackson's bat can live up to all that suit-coat bravado.

Jackson finds a new home in the middle of the batting order

Austin Jackson has gone from setting tables to cleaning tables. The Detroit Tigers' center fielder batted leadoff the first four years of his career, but is hitting either fifth or sixth this season. It's a change that came after he hit eighth in the last three games of the 2013 ALCS to shake an awful slump. That move was born out of desperation, but it was the beginning of Jackson...

Tigers notes: Austin Jackson thriving in new batting order spot

LAKELAND, Fla. -- Detroit Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson is wearing out pitchers consistently, and batting .483 halfway through the Grapefruit League season. He's never looked more balanced at the plate in four previous seasons, and credits that with his effectiveness. "When you don't have that balance," Jackson said, "you rush to the hitting position. I'm just trying to keep...

Detroit Tigers: who is most likely to flop?

Last week, I looked at three x-factors for the 2014 Detroit Tigers. Now, it’s time to examine the likely 25-man roster and determine three players that have the biggest potential to flop in 2014. As in the last article I’ll nominate one player from each position group (offense, starting pitching, and bullpen). Caveat: by no means am I saying that these three players will all...

Austin Jackson can dunk a basketball with ease (Video)

Detroit Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson is a tremendous athlete. Baseball America named him the best 12-year-old baseball player in the nation in 1999 and the best 15-year-old player a few years later.
