RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
