  • Jackson Merrill Collects Three Hits, Stolen Base Monday

    Headshot for Jackson Merrill

    San Diego Padres outfielder Jackson Merrill had another productive offensive game in Monday's 7-3 win over the Brewers. Merrill went 3-for-5 with three singles and a stolen base. The 20-year-old has made an excellent first impression in the big leagues, slashing .356/.433/.441 with one home run, 12 runs scored, seven RBI, and three stolen bases in 67 plate appearances. He is currently rostered in just 59% of leagues and is worth a look in all leagues at this time.

  • Jackson Merrill Collects Four Hits

    Headshot for Jackson Merrill

    San Diego Padres outfielder Jackson Merrill put together a solid day at the plate during Sunday's game against the San Francisco Giants. The young slugger went 4-for-4 at the plate during Sunday's loss. All of the hits were singles, but Merrill is not known as a power hitter. He makes hard contact but isn't a home run hitter. He could be a useful fantasy asset for his ability to get on base.

  • Jackson Merrill Absent On Wednesday

    Headshot for Jackson Merrill

    San Diego Padres outfielder Jackson Merrill is on the bench to start Wednesday's contest against the St. Louis Cardinals and left-hander Zack Thompson. The 20-year-old has been logging everyday reps in center field for the Friars to begin the 2024 season and has gone 6-for-25 (.240) with one homer, a pair of doubles, and two walks against six strikeouts across 27 trips to the plate. Merrill earned a spot on the Opening Day roster to begin the 2024 season despite not having played a game above Double-A where he hit .273 with five homers, five steals, and a .782 OPS across 46 games in the 2023 campaign.

  • Jackson Merrill Hits First MLB Home Run

    Headshot for Jackson Merrill

    San Diego Padres center fielder Jackson Merrill went 1-for-3 with his first MLB home run Monday night against Kyle Gibson and the Cardinals in the Padres' 6-2 loss. The 20-year-old Merrill drove a sinker deep into the opposite field, showing off the immense power he possesses. He now owns a triple slash line of .238/.304/.476, good for an OPS of .780. Look for Merrill to continue his hot hitting and watch his batting average climb in an excellent Padres lineup. He is worth starting in four/five outfielder leagues.

    It’s rare for the same team to be on opposite ends of blockbuster trades within one offseason. This Padres front office isn’t afraid to break convention. San Diego was the traditional “seller” in the winter’s biggest trade as they shed a lot of money. That didn’t stop them from dealing a trio of well-regarded prospects…

  • Jackson Merrill Wins Center Field Job

    Headshot for Jackson Merrill

    San Diego Padres prospect Jackson Merrill has won the team's Opening Day center field job. As such, Merrill should be in the Padres' starting lineup for both of the games against the division-rival Los Angeles Dodgers to kick off the 2024 season in Korea on March 20-21. The 20-year-old projects to be the team's starting shortstop in the long term, but because of his athleticism and no other real options at center field, Merrill is going to open the season starting in center in San Diego. In addition to being athletic enough to play the outfield, Merrill hit .351/.400/.595 with two home runs and two steals in 13 Cactus League games this spring to win the job. Fantasy managers in deep-mixed and NL-only leagues may want to temper their expectations in Merrill's first season, but he's definitely a young player on the rise.

    The Padres are poised to name top prospect Jackson Merrill the club’s Opening Day center fielder, per a report from MLB Network’s Jon Morosi.

  • Jackson Merrill Will Be With Team For Korea Series

    Headshot for Jackson Merrill

    San Diego Padres manager Mike Shildt said that shortstop prospect Jackson Merrill will be with the club for their two-game, season-opening series in Korea against the Los Angeles Dodgers on March 20-21, but the skipper wouldn't go as far as to name Merrill as the team's Opening Day center fielder. "He's earned his way on the plane," Shildt said. "He's earned what's coming after the plane." While the 20-year-old should eventually be the long-term option at the 6 in SD, he could open 2024 as the Friars' starting center fielder after working there this spring. Merrill homered for the second straight Cactus League game on Tuesday and has lots of upside, but fantasy managers in single-year leagues need to remember that he also has not played a single game above Double-A in the minors before this year.

  • Jackson Merrill Collects Two Hits

    Headshot for Jackson Merrill

    San Diego Padres shortstop Jackson Merrill put together a nice performance during Sunday's game against the Chicago Cubs. Merrill was given the start at designated hitter and batted leadoff during this game. He went 2-for-2 with a double and two RBI in the 7-0 win. The Padres are likely going to move Merrill around quite a bit during Spring Training. Merrill played mostly shortstop at Double-A last season. However, the 20-year-old should get a chance to earn a corner outfield spot in San Diego. Although, there's a good chance Merrill heads to the minors to begin the 2024 season.

  • Jackson Merrill To See Time At Shortstop, Outfield

    Headshot for Jackson Merrill

    With the San Diego Padres so thin on outfielders after trading both Juan Soto and Trent Grisham to the New York Yankees this offseason, it's quite possible that the Padres will spend the spring auditioning young players such as Jackson Merrill, Jakob Marsee and Graham Pauley in the outfield. Merrill is baseball's No. 12 prospect, according to The Athletic's Keith Law, and will play both shortstop and outfield in spring training. He was the 27th pick in 2021, while Marsee, who became the first minor-league to have 15 homers, 90 walks and 40 steals since at least 2005, was a sixth-rounder in 2022. Pauley was a 13th-rounder out of Duke last year. All three prospects could have the ability to move quickly through the Padres organization. Defensive versatility will give the 20-year-old Merrill a clearer path to the big leagues in 2024.
