Austin Jackson CF DET Jul 15 '12
Austin Jackson got the Tigers offense started with a bang on Sunday, smashing a leadoff homer in the Tigers 4-0 victory over the Orioles.
Jackson finished the day 1-for-3 plus a pair of walks. He's quietly having a tremendous breakout season, hitting .323 with 10 homers, 39 RBI and seven stolen bases. He's already matched his career best 10 homers from a season ago, and has drastically slashed his strikeout rate while increasing his walk total. Still just 25-years-old, Jackson will be an extremely popular name on next year's draft boards.
