RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

The sixth overall pick in the 2014 draft was believed to have the most offensive upside of any hitter in that class, but he has been unable to gain much momentum in the lower levels of the minor leagues. Last season, Jackson dealt with injuries to his shoulder and hand and was subsequently going back-and-forth all year between Low-A Clinton, short-season Everett and extended spring training. When he was in the Midwest League the results were not pretty, though the results were a bit more encouraging in the Northwest Leagues with Everett. While Jackson still has plenty of power and batting average upside, he is forever away from the big leagues and carries as much risk as any hitter who will be ranked as a top-200 prospect for dynasty leagues.

2015

Drafted sixth overall by the Mariners in June, Jackson was considered to be the top prep bat in the 2014 draft class. He projects to have plus right-handed power, and he has a plus arm that the Mariners hope to utilize in right field down the road. Jackson has good bat speed and strength at 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, which should only improve as he develops and fills out. Jackson fractured a cheek bone trying to make a catch last summer in rookie ball, but he returned to finish his pro debut with an .820 OPS. He is at least a couple years away, but keeper leagues should make the investment now, if they haven't already.
