AUSTIN JACKSON RUMORS

Seattle Mariners: Areas of concern

At 16-20, the Seattle Mariners are 7.5 games back of the Houston Astros in the American League West and 4.5 games out of the wild card race. With the vast majority of the season still in front of them, let’s examine which three areas the Mariners must improve in if they wish to get back into contention in the American League. 1. Center Field The Mariners have not been getting...

Seattle Mariners: The effect of the top of the order

Austin Jackson, Seth Smith, and Justin Ruggiano have been the primary 1-2 hitters in the Seattle Mariners lineup. Jackson usually starts in center field, and while he primarily hits leadoff, he’s also been hitting from the #2 spot. Smith and Ruggiano usually split playing time as they operate in the platoon system, meaning that Smith (who bats left) generally starts against right...

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...

Why Austin Jackson Should Be Just Fine

Among the many significant trades that went down at last July’s trading deadline, the three-way deal among the Tigers, Rays and Mariners that centered around David Price was particularly unique. The Tigers and Rays’ respective goals were pretty clear; the Tigers wanted Price to bolster their rotation for what they hoped would be a World […]

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...

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...
