Alex Jackson's Player Profile

Hit / On-base Jackson has one of the better swings in the class, staying through the zone with good bat speed and has shown a willingness to hit the ball with authority the other way.

Power Jackson has plus power to the pull side thanks to his ability to transfer his weight and strong wrists and as stated above he has shown the ability to hit the ball hard to right field, and could be a 25-35 homer guy as a big leaguer.

Speed Similar to Gatewood, Jackson is not a burner but hes not going to be a detriment on the base paths with his average speed.

Glove Jackson has the ability to stick behind the plate, but most that Ive talked to believe that his bat is going to be moved from behind the plate to a corner outfield position. Hes a good enough athlete to handle right field, and has a well-above average arm. If a team truly wants to maximize his value they may try him behind the plate, where hes a decent receiver but would project as below-average.
