2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

The 6-foot-2 righty enjoyed a 3.02 ERA and 0.98 WHIP with a 83:24 K:BB ratio in 83.1 innings at Double-A Frisco, but that excitement was short lived, as Jackson gave up 46 earned runs in 40 innings (10.35 ERA) following his promotion to Triple-A Round Rock. His HR/9 rate quadrupled and his BABIP ballooned to almost .400, so there was some bad luck involved with his disastrous turn at Round Rock, but posting a career-high 13.9% walk rate did not help matters. The stretch at Frisco was the best run of Jacksonís career, and itís likely that his performance at Round Rock simply qualifies as a minor setback. A strong start to 2015 at Triple-A could place him in the Rangersí rotation this summer. Entering his age-23 season, Jackson still possesses a fastball that borders on double-plus, with a curveball and changeup that also have plus potential, so the worst-case scenario here is that he ends up pitching the eighth or ninth inning in Arlington.

2014

Jackson began the year repeating a stint at High-A, but ended the year with 27 innings at Double-A Frisco. There are questions about the repeatable nature of his high-effort delivery, and some related questions about the consistency of his breaking pitches as a result, which could limit his future to a late-inning option out of the bullpen. It's a role that he might eventually pitch his way into, but he'll be given every opportunity to succeed in the rotation first. He's expected to begin the year in the rotation at Double-A Frisco.
