10/19/2019 - Mid-Atlantic Regional Pitching/Catching Weekend (Ages 12-14)
Jackson is a coachable C prospect who worked hard on his skills during the Accelerated Training Weekend. Behind the plate, Jackson sits in an athletic stance and presents a good target to the pitcher. He moves on time to block and covers up well. Receiving with a stronger glove can help Jackson improve defensively. With seven more years to develop, Jackson has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.

Jackson is a young, thin, 2-way player who catches and plays SS. Behind the plate, Jackson tracks well, sits in athletically, and stays down when blocking. He has a presentable glove, a clean exchange, and he throws with consistency to 2nd base. Pop times were as low as 3.31 seconds. At SS, Jackson has good pre-pitch actions, he fields athletically in a square position, and he throws with a short arm action across the diamond. At the plate, Jackson has an athletic stance, good balance, and he swings aggressively. He tracks well, swings on plane, and he taps into his lower body.
