Braves' Alex Jackson: Sent down after twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was optioned to the alternate training site after Wednesday's doubleheader against the Yankees.

Jackson joined the club as the 29th man for Wednesday's twin bill, but he didn't appear in either game. The 24-year-old is unlikely to see worthwhile opportunities with the Braves while Travis d'Arnaud and Tyler Flowers remain healthy.

Braves' Alex Jackson: Brought back for twin bill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves recalled Jackson from their alternate training site Wednesday.

Atlanta optioned Jackson to its alternate training site Tuesday to clear a spot on the active roster for outfielder Ronald Acuna, but the backstop will be able to rejoin the Braves for the day as the team's 29th man for Wednesday's doubleheader with the Yankees. Tyler Flowers and Travis d'Arnaud are both expected to make one start at catcher apiece during the twin bill, so Jackson will likely just be serving as a pinch-hitting option off the bench.

Braves' Alex Jackson: Sent down Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was optioned to the Braves' alternate training site Tuesday.

Ronald Acuna was activated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Jackson's placement on the 40-man roster means he could be back in the majors later this summer, but he has four strikeouts in seven at-bats this year and lacks the defensive chops to get playing time when he is not producing at the dish.

Braves' Alex Jackson: Rejoins big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was recalled from Atlanta's alternate training site Friday.

The 24-year-old is 2-for-7 in three games this season and will rejoin the major-league roster for the weekend matchup with Philadelphia. Jackson is likely to fill a reserve role while Tyler Flowers and Travis d'Arnaud remain healthy.

Braves' Alex Jackson: Sent to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves optioned Jackson to their alternate training site Thursday.

Jackson's latest stint with the Braves lasted all of one day, as his status as the team's No. 3 catcher made him an obvious choice for a demotion with teams needing to reduce their 30-man rosters to 28 ahead of Thursday's deadline. He'll likely move back up to the big club if either Tyler Flowers or Travis d'Arnaud is forced to miss time at any point.

Braves' Alex Jackson: Moves up to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Braves recalled Jackson from their alternate training site Wednesday.

Both of the Braves' top catchers (Tyler Flowers and Travis d'Arnaud) are believed to be healthy, so expect Jackson to see limited action as a No. 3 backstop while he's up with the big club. Teams will have to reduce their active rosters from 30 to 28 men Friday, so Jackson will likely be a prime candidate to get optioned to the Braves' alternative training site at that time.

Braves' Alex Jackson: Optioned by Atlanta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was optioned to the Braves' alternate training site Wednesday.

Jackson and William Contreras were needed for the first several games with both Travis d'Arnaud and Tyler Flowers out with illness, but both primary backstop options are now healthy and back with the team. Jackson went 2-for-7 during his brief time with the team but struck out four times.

Braves' Alex Jackson: Collects first big-league hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson went 2-for-3 with a double in Tuesday's loss to the Rays.

His two-bagger off Yonny Chirinos in the third inning was his first big-league hit. Jackson has been holding down the fort as Atlanta's starting catcher to begin the season, but with Tyler Flowers (illness) and Travis d'Arnaud (illness) both potentially ready to rejoin the club as soon as Wednesday, the 24-year-old will soon head to the bench and perhaps lose his spot on the 30-man roster entirely.

Braves' Alex Jackson: Slated to start again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson will start in Saturday's contest against the Mets, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Jackson started in Friday's season opener with Travis d'Arnaud (illness) and Tyler Flowers (illness) both sidelined, and he went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts. However, manager Brian Snitker was impressed with the 24-year-old's defensive performance and said that he'll start once again Saturday. Jackson went hitless in four games with the Braves last season.

Braves' Alex Jackson: May receive Opening Day start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson is expected to start at catcher Friday against the Mets since Travis d'Arnaud (illness) and Tyler Flowers (illness) didn't travel with the team, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Flowers and d'Arnaud both tested negative for COVID-19, but they remain in Atlanta since they're exhibiting symptoms. Jackson appeared in four games for the Braves last season and went hitless in 15 plate appearances, but he should edge out William Contreras for the start, since the latter has yet to play even at the Triple-A level. It's unclear when the two veteran catchers are expected to rejoin the team.

Braves' Alex Jackson: Bumped to Gwinnett
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Friday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

While the move currently doesn't matter much with both the MLB and MiLB seasons suspended, it does confirm that Jackson will begin the regular season in the minors whenever play does resume. The 24-year-old did slug 28 homers in 85 games for Gwinnett last year, but his hit tool and defense behind the plate both remain a work in progress.

Braves' Alex Jackson: Gets nod behind plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (knee) is in the lineup for Saturday's spring opener against the Orioles.

Jackson ended last season on the 60-day injured list because of his injury, but he has put that behind him and will start behind the plate in the Braves' first spring game.

Braves' Alex Jackson: Summoned to majors, sent to IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett and placed on the 60-day injured list with a left knee sprain Thursday.

With less than a month left in the season, this effectively ends Jackson's 2019 campaign. The backstop spent most of the season with Gwinnett, slashing .229/.313/.533 with 28 home runs and a 34.2 percent strikeout rate in 85 games. Darren O'Day (forearm) was activated from the 60-day IL in a corresponding move.

Braves' Alex Jackson: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Saturday.

Jackson was optioned after the Braves signed Francisco Cervelli. He was just called up Wednesday, but he drew only one start in the three-game span. Jackson has yet to record a hit in 13 major-league at-bats.

Braves' Alex Jackson: Back to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett prior to Wednesday's game against the Marlins.

Brian McCann was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left knee sprain, and he is expected to miss a couple weeks. Tyler Flowers will serve as the primary catcher. Jackson has significant raw power (.286 ISO, 25 HR in 81 games at Triple-A), but he has not hit above .225 since he was at Double-A in 2017.

Braves' Alex Jackson: Likely headed to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (undisclosed) received a clean bill of health after exiting his game Tuesday at Triple-A Gwinnett and is expected to be promoted to the majors ahead of the Braves' game Wednesday against the Marlins, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Though Jackson was pulled from his contest at Gwinnett shortly after Brian McCann (knee) exited the Braves' 5-1 win over the Marlins, the former's departure was apparently for injury-related reasons and not a precautionary move. In any case, Jackson's injury wasn't anything concerning, so he'll likely head to Atlanta with McCann set to land on the 10-day injured list ahead of Wednesday's series finale versus Miami. While McCann is on the shelf, Jackson likely won't be asked to play more than one or two times per week behind Tyler Flowers, who takes over as the team's new top backstop.

Braves' Alex Jackson: Dealing with apparent injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was removed from Tuesday's game with Triple-A Gwinnett due to an injury, 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

Jackson was originally thought to have been removed since Brian McCann exited Tuesday's game against the Marlins with knee soreness, but it appears Jackson is also managing an injury. It's not clear if the young backstop is expected to require a trip to the injured list.

Braves' Alex Jackson: Continues power surge
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson went 3-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI for Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.

Monday's two-homer game marked the fourth time Jackson has accomplished the feat, and he now has a career-high 20 home runs this season, including eight over the past 12 games. The catcher recorded 20 RBI during those 12 games to bring his total to 47 at the Triple-A level in 2019. However, he's a bit of a one-trick pony, as he carries a slash line of .239/.325/.561 and a 17:73 B:KK through 58 games this year with Gwinnett. It's possible Jackson could get called up when rosters expand or if Brian McCann or Tyler Flowers goes down with an injury, but it's unlikely that he sees regular playing time at the major-league level in the immediate future

Braves' Alex Jackson: Providing power at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson went 4-for-5 with a double, two home runs, three runs scored and six RBI for Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday.

The 23-year-old now has 17 homers on the season for Gwinnett, leaving him two shy of tying his previous career high in the minors. Jackson's .229/.321/.526 slash line and 17:68 BB:K through 55 games mark him as a fairly one-dimensional player, though, and he might never be anything more than a depth catching option or utility bench player in the big leagues.

Braves' Alex Jackson: Returns to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday.

Jackson is no longer needed at the big-league level with Brian McCann (hamstring) back from the injured list, so he'll head back to the minors to continue his development. The 23-year-old backstop appeared in just three games during his brief stint in the majors, going 0-for-10 with a walk and a trio of strikeouts.
