Jackson continues to show well on the diamond. On the mound, this RHP pounds the zone with strikes with all 3-pitches. He maintains fluid tempo and repeats well. FB sits in the mid to upper 70's. CB has 10/4 shape with tight spin as he commands it well. Changeup compliments FB and is deceptive to hitters with sinking action that will get GB outs. At 3B, he quickly works around the GB and into a square fielding position. Hands are presented out front as he funnels smoothly to a clean transfer. At the plate, this righty shows a square stance with rhythm to load. He takes an aggressive hack on a short/direct path, squares the ball up and hits hard line-drives. This 2023 2-way prospect has skills with upside as he enters his sophomore year.
