Mariners' Austin Jackson looking to bounce back in 2015
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

After being acquired by the Mariners at the trade deadline last season, outfielder Austin Jackson struggled to produce for the Mariners. In 54 games, Jackson hit .229 and Jackson said the trade affected his playing ability, reports The News Tribune.

"Not making excuses, but I think getting traded and trying to get used to the travel and the sleep - those things affect your play on the field," Jackson said.

By starting the season in Seattle, Jackson said he hopes to avoid the distractions from last season and he's looking to return to his old form.

"Hopefully, getting started here and staying here, those distractions won't be there," Jackson said.

Report: Mariners, Austin Jackson agree to $7.7-million deal
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Mariners have avoided arbitration with outfielder Austin Jackson by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $7.7 million, the Seattle Times reports.

The team was able to avoid arbitration with five players in all Friday by agreeing to the terms of one-year contracts for each player. First basman Logan Morrison is scheduled to make $2.725 million with incentives for reaching 500 and 600 plate appearances. Outfielder Dustin Ackley will take in $2.6 million as well as another $50,000 bonus for reaching 500 plate appearances.

Outfielder Justin Ruggiano, who was acquired from the Cubs earlier this offseason, will make $2.5 million and can earn another $20,000 if he reaches 375 plate appearances. Pitcher Charlie Furbush will earn $1.3 million.

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."
