Diamondbacks outfield prospect Brandon Jacobs went 2-for-3 with a double and two walks on Saturday for High-A Visalia.
He is hitting .271/.340/.479 with three home runs and a double on the season in his return to High-A. Jacobs is a tremendous athlete who has struggled to turn his athletic ability into baseball production. After a breakout 2011, he struggled for the next two seasons, which included getting traded twice (from the Red Sox to the White Sox to the Diamondbacks) in a five month span in 2013. If he can cut down on his strikeouts, he could turn into a middle of the order force with 25-plus home run potential. Apr 20 - 10:12 AM

Brandon Jacobs went 2-for-5 and hit his third homer in four games for low Single-A Greenville on Sunday.

Jacobs was considered more of a raw talent after the Red Sox signed him away from an Auburn football scholarship last year, but he's off to a fantastic start for Greenville, having gone 6-for-14 with a 3/3 K/BB ratio. Last year, he hit .242/.308/.411 with six homers and a 59/21 K/BB ratio for short-season Single-A Lowell.
