Scouting Report: Brett Jackson, CF, Cal (2009 Draft)

May 28, 2009

Brett Jackson, CF
Cal (2009 Draft)
6-2, 210
Bats: Left, Throws: Right
Games seen: 1, Innings 9

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION:  Tall and medium build, athletic frame, strong upper half, flexibility increasing, still physically maturing. Strong forearms and grip, good hands. Athletic enough to stay in center field.

STRENGTHS: Strong hands and fast bat with aptitude for adjustment. Above-average arm in CF, fast first step, aggressive and smart base runner, fields what he gets to, comes in for the ball very well, should have average defensive range gap-to-gap as ML CF. Above-average speed, but not a burner.

WEAKNESSES: Bat has pop, but swing path might not generate above-average power in ML. Flat-footed defensively, can correct. Loosey-goosey game persona; can be a tough guy to get read of in game.

SUMMARY: Good body, good athlete. Bat should play enough to allow him to play every day. No one tool is a jaw dropper, but a very competitive overall package should make this player a major league regular.
