Austin Jackson slugging .625 through six games
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/9/14) Tigers outfielder Austin Jackson connected for his first home run during Tuesday's 3-2 loss against the Dodgers. Jackson hit a solo home run off Dan Haren in the second inning for his only hit in four at-bats.

Jackson has hit safely in five of six games this season. He is batting .333 (8 for 24) with a .360 on-base percentage, .625 slugging percentage and .985 OPS. He has one home run, one triple, one RBI, two doubles and four runs.

Tigers unveil opening day lineup
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/30/14) Tigers manager Brad Ausmus announced his opening day lineup for Monday's game against the Royals. Second baseman Ian Kinsler will hit leadoff and be followed by right fielder Torii Hunter, first baseman Miguel Cabrera, DH Victor Martinez, center fielder Austin Jackson, catcher Alex Avila, third baseman Nick Castellanos, shortstop Alex Gonzalez and left field Rajai Davis.

Jackson has primarily hit leadoff in his career, but after the spring he put together, Ausmus made the decision to hit him in the heart of the order. Jackson hit .429 (24 for 56) with two triples, two home runs, five doubles, 14 RBI and 17 runs in 18 spring games.

"The way Austin Jackson hit this spring, he was the best option to bat fifth," Ausmus said.

Austin Jackson unlikely to bat leadoff this season
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/21/14) Tigers outfielder Austin Jackson has been a constant presence atop the Tigers lineup over the last few years, but he'll be hitting in a different spot in the order this season, MLB.com reports.

Trade acquisition Ian Kinsler has been leading off for the Tigers more often than not this spring, and it's likely he'll remain atop the lineup once the regular season begins. Jackson has scored 90 runs or more in each of his first four major-league seasons, but he may have trouble reaching that mark in 2014.

Less movement means more production for Austin Jackson
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/14/14) Tigers leadoff hitter Austin Jackson is "quieter" at the plate this spring - and it's paying off. His 3-for-3 game Thursday raised his batting average to a ridiculous .520. He now boasts an OPS of 1.396.

Jackson was racking up the strikeouts last year using a toe-tap and leg-kick. His poor timing at the plate and lack of production motivated then-manager Jim Leyland to drop Jackson in the lineup during the playoffs.

"Going into the offseason, I had a plan I wanted to do," Jackson told the Detroit News. "I wanted to eliminate a lot of extra movement. A lot has to do with the tap."

Jackson has just four strikeouts in 25 at-bats in exhibition play.

Austin Jackson filling up the stat sheet
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/13/14) Tigers outfielder Austin Jackson spent the offseason working on refining his approach at the plate. It seems his work is paying off.

Jackson had three hits, including his second triple this spring, and scored once during Thursday's 4-2 loss against the Marlins. Jackson ran his spring average to .520 (13 for 25). He also has one double, one home run, eight RBI, right runs, one stolen base, .840 slugging percentage and 1.396 OPS in nine spring games.
