  • Marlins' Alex Jackson: Sitting again Monday

    Jackson is not in the lineup Monday against Atlanta, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Jackson has a .162/.225/.432 slash line in 12 games since being acquired by the Marlins, and he finds himself on the bench for the second straight contest. Jackson has been working as Miami's primary catcher with Jorge Alfaro seeing regular action in left field, but the return of Jesus Sanchez (COVID-19 injured list) may return in Jackson and Alfaro seeing a more even split behind the plate.

  • Marlins' Alex Jackson: Resting Sunday

    Jackson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.

    After catching three consecutive games for Miami while going 2-for-12 with a home run and a pair of walks, Jackson will get some routine maintenance for the series finale. Jorge Alfaro -- who has been serving as Miami's everyday left fielder of late -- will replace Jackson behind the dish.

  • Marlins' Alex Jackson: Clubs third homer

    Jackson went 1-for-3 with two walks, a three-run home run and a second run scored in Friday's 14-10 win over the Cubs.

    The catcher took Dan Winkler deep in the second inning as part of an 11-run eruption by Miami. Jackson is getting a long look behind the plate for the rebuilding Marlins -- Jorge Alfaro started in left field in this one -- but so far the 25-year-old hasn't shown anything but occasional power, slashing .182/.250/.485 through his first 11 games with the club with three homers and 3:16 BB:K.

  • Marlins' Alex Jackson: Out of Tuesday's lineup

  • Marlins' Alex Jackson: Getting regular run as catcher

    Jackson will start at catcher and bat seventh Sunday against the Rockies, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    The Marlins have been exposing Jorge Alfaro to left field more frequently in recent days, which has allowed Jackson to take on increased work behind the dish. He'll be catching for the fifth time in seven games and may have temporarily emerged as the team's new No. 1 backstop, at least until the Marlins get the likes of Jesus Sanchez (COVID-19 injured list) and Jon Berti (concussion) back in action in the outfield.

  • Marlins' Alex Jackson: Pops first big-league homer

    Jackson went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Mets.

    He opened the scoring on the night by taking Taijuan Walker deep in the second inning, his first career homer in the big leagues. Jackson also struck out twice, and the move to Miami at the trade deadline doesn't seem to have changed the catcher's fortunes at the plate -- it's a small sample of 58 plate appearances, but Jackson's gone just 4-for-51 (.078) with a 3:26 BB:K in the majors for his career.

  • Marlins' Alex Jackson: Joining major-league club

    Jackson will join the major-league club once he arrives in Miami, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Jackson was traded from Atlanta to Miami on Friday in exchange for Adam Duvall, and he should serve as depth behind the plate. The 25-year-old has appeared in 19 major-league games across the last three seasons, and he's hit .070 with a double, two runs and 22 strikeouts.

  • Marlins' Alex Jackson: Moves to Miami

    Jackson was traded from Atlanta to Miami on Friday in exchange for Adam Duvall, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

    Jackson has appeared in a handful of games in each of the past three seasons but owns a .070/.200/.093 slash line in 50 trips to the plate. He'll likely be higher on the organizational depth chart in Miami than he was in Atlanta, but he's unlikely to develop into an impact player.

  • Braves' Alex Jackson: Activated and optioned

    Atlanta reinstated Jackson (hamstring) from the 60-day injured list Wednesday and optioned him to Triple-A Gwinnett.

    Though Travis d'Arnaud (thumb) is expected to remain sidelined through mid-August, Jackson wasn't needed to provide catching depth at the big-league level with Atlanta having acquired a pair of veteran backstops (Stephen Vogt and Kevan Smith) while the 25-year-old was on the shelf. Jackson will likely share time behind the plate at Gwinnett with William Contreras, who was demoted shortly before the All-Star break after struggling at the dish during his time as Atlanta's No. 1 catcher. Jackson enjoyed a productive rehab assignment at Triple-A, going 17-for-60 (.283 average) with four home runs, seven doubles and 15 RBI in 14 games.
