Austin Jackson homered, doubled and walked versus the Twins on Thursday.
Jackson has been quite the bust offensively in his Mariners career, but at least he's had a bit to offer fantasy leaguers these last two months (.267 average, four homers, five steals) than he did previously. It's just not quite enough to give him mixed-league value. Jul 31 - 1:12 AM

Austin Jackson went 0-for-5 in his return to Seattle's starting lineup on Saturday.

Even with his .297 OBP, Jackson was inserted right back into the leadoff spot tonight after missing two games with back spasms. He's been an extremely disappointing player in his Mariners career; not only does he have the lousy OBP this year, but he's been thrown out on seven of his 15 steal attempts.

Austin Jackson (back) is not in the Mariners starting lineup on Friday.

The team had been hopeful that he would be able to return for Friday's contest, but they'll play it safe and give him an extra day. Dustin Ackley will start in his place in center field and bat ninth against opposing southpaw Hector Santiago.

Austin Jackson clubbed a grand slam and walked in six plate appearances on Tuesday as the Mariners outlasted the Tigers in 11 innings on Tuesday.

Jackson cleared the bases with a four-bagger in the third inning against Kyle Ryan. It was a rare sign of life at the plate for the outfielder, who's still only hitting .254/.300/.363 with four home runs and 19 RBI with eight stolen bases.

Austin Jackson is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Giants.

He'll take a seat in the day game. James Jones will start in center field and bat sixth.

Austin Jackson went 1-for-3 with a double in Sunday's blowout loss to the Astros.

Just a disheartening effort all the way around by the Mariners. Not only was their pitching shelled for 13 runs, the offense managed just two hits. Jackson's double was the only of the extra-base variety. It's nice to see Jackson double, though his .267/.311/.378 slash-line for the season is pretty indicative of the kind of player he is at this point.
Jun 14 - 5:59 PM

Austin Jackson homered and doubled to lead the Mariners offense on Saturday.

Jackson is 11-for-22 with six extra-base hits in six games this month. He had a total of four extra-base hits in 31 games entering June, so enjoy it while it lasts.

Austin Jackson is not in the Mariners starting lineup on Friday.

It looks to be nothing more than a routine day of rest. Dustin Ackley is taking his place in center field and will bat ninth against opposing right-hander Jake Odorizzi.
Jun 5 - 6:03 PM

Austin Jackson reached base six times, as he was hit by a pitch, drew a walk, had four hits, and stole a base in Tuesday's 11-inning loss to the Yankees.

Jackson raised his OPS from .599 to .665 with the effort. He scored once, in the third inning on a Nelson Cruz single to tie the game at 1-1. He then gave the Mariners a temporary 2-1 lead in the sixth with an RBI double. Jackson may be starting to heat up as he's on a six-game hitting streak.
Jun 3 - 2:08 AM

Austin Jackson (hamstring) will start in center field and bat leadoff Tuesday against the Rays in his return from the disabled list.

May 26 - 3:05 PM

Mariners activated OF Austin Jackson from the 15-day disabled list.

Jackson batted only .263/.333/.289 over nine rehab games for Tacoma, but he's feeling healthy and that's really all the Mariners care about. The veteran outfielder had been sidelined since early May with a sprained right ankle.
May 25 - 10:26 PM

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Monday that the club will make a decision on when Austin Jackson (ankle) will be activated "sometime this week."

The Mariners will end a string of six straight games on artificial turf on Wednesday, so the team could decide to just activate Jackson at the beginning of an 11-game homestand on Thursday. He's been out since early May with a sprained right ankle. "I'm told he's moving pretty good, so we'll see," McClendon said.
May 25 - 7:17 PM

Austin Jackson (ankle) went 1-for-4 with a run scored in his eighth rehab game Sunday with Triple-A Tacoma.

And he went 3-for-5 with a walk on Saturday. Jackson should return from the disabled list early this week, perhaps as soon as Monday. The 28-year-old center fielder has been out since May 3 with a right ankle sprain.
