AUSTIN JACKSON RUMORS

Can Austin Jackson help the Cleveland Indians?

Last season, Cleveland Indians Manager Terry Francona followed an outfield by committee approach when filling out the lineup cards every day, and it looks as though he will follow this approach again in 2017. Earlier this week, the Indians signed former Detroit Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson, adding to their bevy of options in the outfield. While Jackson is not the same player...

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.

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.

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...
