Austin Jackson is the starting CF for the Mariners.  He was acquired last year mid-season in a three team trade that saw the Mariners lose Ryan Franklin to the Rays and the Tigers acquire David Price, among other pieces.  He then proceeded to have a dismal second half, the worst half season of his career where he posted a .229/.267/.260 line in 54 games.  This is a significant drop off his career line of .274/.336/.402.  He will be looking to bounce back this year.
