Jackson was 7-3 with a 4.27 ERA in 13 starts in 2003, as he averaged 6.0 innings pitched per start. Jackson also has a 15-5 career record in three seasons as a Tiger.
Steven was listed rated as the #9 ACC prospect for the 2003 draft by Baseball America entering the season. He's a tall righthander who has been used as a mid-week starter during his two seasons in Tiger Town. Most scouts regard him as a power pitcher who is able to reach the low 90s.
Jackson was a USA Today Honorable Mention selection as a junior at Summerville High School and was drafted in the 38th round by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 2000.
"What would determine whether I would stay or go would be the kind of offer Cleveland made," Jackson told the Greenville News. "That would be the top thing I'd have to consider as to whether I'd go or stay."
