Still looks like the 3rd or 4th best SP prospect in the high minors..Still freakishly young and had questionable injury issues...
He's coming back from a strained right forearm. Lost speed in spring last year...Worth the risk in my eyes...

He's still with the Dodgers yes, and I still have him in my top 15 prospect list. I believe he definitely has the stuff to become a future ace.

He might slip into the dodgers rotation with a good spring. I happen to think another partial season in the minors would do him some good. He got a great arm and great stuff. If he can get the injuries and his head figured out, he could be a good starter in the majors.

I heard that he had a few problems working out some very minor issues, which caused his bad stats over the last year. Don't quote me on this, but I think I remember word that he was experimenting with some new pitches.

In addition, the LV ballpark is a famed bandbox of minor league parks.

I'd watch out for Jackson and only pick him up off the WW... People said he was going to contribute and put up solid numbers last year and nothing panned through.

That being said, he's supposed to have an electric arm and K's quite a few...
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

Kind of young, but a ton of talent - looks like he has a spot in the rotation going into the spring. Has the stuff to be a #1 in a couple of years.

This is the guy everyone wanted last year but the team would not trade...

This off-season, I did not hear near as much noise.

That said, he appears to be an up-and-comer.
