Stock Up: Austin Jackson

Hello Austin Jackson, how ya been? It’s beautiful to have you being the player the M’s thought they were going to get at the trade deadline last year. He was on my “stock down” last week, and he’s the only hitter worth buying into this week. He’s hitting .429 on the week, but more impressively he’s got four doubles, a triple, and a homerun. He’s scored twice in the past seven days, and while that doesn’t sound impressive, if you take into account that the M’s only have 15 runs the past seven days, that’s pretty good.

Austin Jackson has been getting on base for the 2-3-4 hitters to do some damage, but they just haven’t gotten it done. You can blame a ton of people for this 1-6 week, but Austin Jackson simply isn’t one of them.
