    Player Outlook

    Austin Jackson made a better impression on Mariners fans in 2015 than he did when he first arrived late in 2014, batting .272 with eight home runs and 15 stolen bases in 107 games. Despite the improvement, Jackson's tenure in Seattle lasted just 13 months, as he was traded yet again, this time to the Cubs. In Chicago, Jackson played sparingly, providing depth for the team's playoff run. Jackson is now a free agent, but having done most of his damage against lefties, he may have hurt his value. Should Jackson land an everyday job, rather than a platoon role, he could return value on a late-round pick in standard mixed Rotisserie leagues.

    • Cubs' Kyle Schwarber not starting Game 2 of DH vs. Pirates
      By CBSSports.com Staff

      Cubs rookie Kyle Schwarber is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Pirates. The 22-year-old will give way to Austin Jackson in left field after an 0-for-4, two-strikeout showing in Game 1. All three of Schwarber's hits since his Sept. 8 return from a rib injury have left the yard (3-for-21).

    • Cubs land CF Austin Jackson in trade with Mariners
      By Jason Lempert

      The Cubs have acquired outfielder Austin Jackson in a deal with the Mariners. Seattle will received a player to be named later, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. Jackson has had a decent season with the Mariners, slashing .272/.312/.387 with eight homers and 38 RBI in 107 games. He will provide solid outfield depth for the Cubs, who are currently without Jorge Soler. The Mariners, meanwhile, will likely roll with a combination of Brad Miller, Franklin Gutierrez and Ketel Marte in center field for the bulk of what's left in 2015. Jackson had been in the starting lineup for the Mariners' game against the Astros on Monday. It is not yet known when Jackson is expected to report to the Cubs, who open up a three-game series at home with the Reds on Monday.

    • Mariners center fielder Austin Jackson joined in on the run-scoring frenzy that was Saturday's contest against the Red Sox. Jackson went 2 for 5 with a home run and three RBI, as the Mariners lost by a score of 22-10.

The home run was Jackson's first since the end of July, but he is batting .286 (12 for 42) with four doubles and six RBI over his past 10 games.
