Probably Austin Jackson. The Dodgers have been babying Crawford and now he has a hamstring problem. It all adds up to him not running a lot and also getting a lot of days off, or even a possible DL stint again in the future.

Based on straight numbers its close but I have to give it to Jackson. Too much injury history with Crawford. I like the guys hitting behind Jackson better too.

Would you consider Jackson having more upside at this point or are they both about tapped out in potential?

Thanks guys, I just wanted to be sure ---they seemed pretty close, but Jackson having more potential and being younger and healthier I thought it seemed like a good move
