Mariners' McClendon has confidence Jackson will bounce back in 2015
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mariners outfielder Austin Jackson didn't quite make the impact Seattle was looking for following his acquisition from Detroit at the trade deadline in July. Jackson had just a .229/.260/.527 slash line in 54 games, which was a far cry from his production in about 4 1/2 seasons with Detroit (.277/.413/.755).

Despite his struggles, Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon has confidence Jackson can get back on track. McClendon was the Tigers' hitting coach in Jackson's first four seasons before taking over as the Mariners manager last season.

"From what I saw with Austin -- and I probably know Austin better than anybody -- I think he's going to be just fine," McClendon said, per MLB.com. "We didn't see the best of Austin Jackson, for a number of different reasons.

"One, he was a little beaten down physically. He needs to get himself stronger this offseason. He has to find a way to keep the weight on. And there's some things from a mechanical standpoint we need to shore up. But this guy is a good player. He's an above-average center fielder defensively and an above-average offensive player when he's going like he can go."

Austin Jackson uses his wheels to keep M's alive
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

It may not have been pretty, but Mariners outfielder Austin Jackson used his wheels to lead his team past the Angels in extras on Saturday.

With two outs and runners on the corners, Jackson grounded out to second and was able to beat out a relay throw to first base for the double play. Brad Miller scored to give the Mariners a 2-1 victory in 11 innings. Jackson went 0 for 5 with a walk and an RBI, lowering his batting average to .255 on the year. With the win, the Mariners stay alive and remain one game back of the A's heading into the final day of the regular season.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Austin Jackson set to lead off for Seattle
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Lloyd McLendon has announced that newly acquired outfielder Austin Jackson will be placed in the leadoff spot for the Mariners, the Seattle Times has reported.

Jackson began this season batting lower in the lineup for Detroit, but moved back to his familiar top spot in the order in July. He is batting .327 leading off with a better on-base percentage and slugging percentage at that spot than any other.
