Everett AquaSox – Short Season Single A – 11-5, 1st Place in Northwest League Northern Division

Alex Jackson – RF – Cold

The Mariners’ top prospect has had a terrible season in 2015. Jackson started the year with the LumberKings before being demoted to Everett. The 19-year-old is hitting .188 with 1 double, 1 home run and 3 RBI’s this week with the AquaSox. The homer was his first at any level this year. Hopefully the young man has not lost too much confidence this season, as he still has immense potential at the plate.

Andrew Moore – RHP – Hot

The M’s 2015 2nd round selection is off to a hot start with the AquaSox. Andrew Moore has allowed just 1 run across his first 8 innings pitched. Everett is slowing stretching his arm out, and thus the right-hander has yet to pitch more than 3 innings in any start. Moore has tallied 11 strikeouts against 0 walks. The Oregon State alum has back of the rotation potential, and he could arrive on the scene in Seattle within the next 24 months.

Drew Jackson – SS – Hot

The Mariners’ picked Drew Jackson in the 5th round this June, and he has been one of the top performers in the AquaSox’s lineup. Jackson is hitting .412 with 1 double, 1 RBI and 4 stolen bases over the last week. Jackson leads Everett with 8 stolen bases this season, and boasts an impressive .345 batting average. The Stanford alum is known more for his glove work, so the offensive output has been a pleasant surprise. Drew has big league pedigree, as his older brother is Brett Jackson formerly of the Chicago Cubs and Arizona Diamondbacks.
