Cubs Top Prospects 2012: OF Brett Jackson Ranked No. 87 By Marc Hulet

Analyst Marc Hulet of FanGraphs.com has released the first segment of his latest rendition of Top 100 Prospects -- and the prospect maven has OF Brett Jackson stuck at No. 87:

87. Brett Jackson, OF, Chicago NL: The list of prospect analysts that think Jackson is going to be a star at the big league level continues to dwindle. He should still be a decent regular but strikeouts continue to be an issue. He’s struck out 122 times in 82 games and has walked just 34 times. Jackson continues to tease with his power potential (.233 ISO) and speed (10 triples, 20 steals in 24 attempts). (Value Static)

Jackson has played 82 games at the Triple-A level in 2012 and now owns 12 homer and 20 steals. But the 23-year-old also has struck out in over a third of his plate appearances (33.8%) and walked in less than a tenth (9.4%).
