Probably so, but Jackson seems to have an above average glove and average bat. Garcia has an above average bat, and hopefully average defense.
Jackson has a noodle bat. He hit well at Springfield but everyone
hits well at Hammond. At AAA, guys were taking the bat out of his hand. His bat looks a lot like Kozmas but with even less power. I don't see him ever being able to hit enough to be a regular.
If he's Brendan Ryan with the leather, you could up with it. Ryan Jackson isn't Brendan Ryan with the leather.
Garcia at least has a couple of projectable tools, namely his walk rate and bat control. That leads me to believe he can actually play at the next level.
