|Compared to same point last season|
Alex Jackson has impressed Braves coaches with his intellect and the tremendous power potential he has shown since the start of Spring Training. But the lingering question surrounding the former first-rounder is whether he can adequately handle the catching duties he was reintroduced to last year after being traded by the Mariners to the Braves.
Spin: Jackson certainly didn't hurt his defensive stock as he served as the starting catcher in Saturday's game against the Astros. The former outfielder made just 33 starts as a catcher for Class A Advanced Florida last year, but he tallied 15 more starts behind the plate during the Arizona Fall League. "I really liked Jackson," Braves manager Brian Snitker said after Saturday's game. "He really blocked the ball well and received the ball really well. It was pretty good. I was very pleasantly pleased with what I saw from him. I was kind of hoping they'd run or steal earlier, because I wanted to see him throw." As Spring Training progresses, Jackson will have plenty of opportunities to prove his power potential extends beyond the prodigious homers he hits during batting practice. But he struck out in each of Saturday's three at-bats.
