Houston Astros Claim Ryan Jackson Off of Waivers
What does Jackson bring? Well, for one, he's a plus defender at one of the most important defensive positions.
Jackson hit .278/.352/.346 in 510 plate appearances for the Cardinals' Triple-A team last year while stealing 9 of 9 bases.
He offers a good eye at the plate, fluctuating between 8-10 percent walk rates in the minors with a strikeout rate between 17-20 percent.
