    A-Jax has had a pretty impressive playoffs this season. Showing power, getting walks and etc. Robbed twice, get stronger A-Jax.

    • Brandon

      Colin Curtis is hitting .400 in this years AA playoffs.

  • Mike R.

    I love that our prospects seem to step it up for big games. Hughes, A-Jax, Montero. Hope that trend continues.

  • Jack

    So, what kind of stuff does Jhonny Nunez have? Is he a legitimate prospect?

  • BigYank1

    Check out this picture of AJax robbing the 1st homerun!

    Simply amazing!

    • Mike A.

      Wow. I added it to the post, thanks for the heads up.

    • Ivan

      Well he use to be a basketball player so he has some hops.

  • Ivan

    What an “inspiring” play by A-JAX.

  • Ivan

    So much for the college football game of the year.

  • Andy in Sunny Daytona

    Wow. An outfielder who can catch a ball at the wall. Is it possible?

    • Ivan

      Melky could but he doesn’t count.

      • Brandon

        Not at that height, Action jumped about 40 inches off that ground, look at his left shoulder nearly being above that wall.

        • Ashish Skaria

          I can do that in my sleep. ;-)

        • Ivan

          Looks like the Jordan symbol.

  • Manimal

    Presumably, he will start at AAA next year, right?

    • Ashish Skaria

      Yea, that’s what Cashman’s said. But of course, Austin will be invited to spring training. Wouldn’t it be exciting if he made the team straight out of camp?

  • Hitman

    Jackson had a pretty disappointing season based on his tampa numbers last year.

  • A.D.

    nice lines for that AA pen
