Reader/contributor Eric is in Arizona and filmed Brett Jackson's new swing and was kind enough to share. A big thanks for that!
Notice how Jackson keeps the elbow low and how that, in turn, keeps him short to the ball. Jackson's swing tended to get a little long and mechanical at times, but this one looks much more fluid and efficient. You could almost call it "pretty", something that has probably rarely been said when describing Jackson's swing in the past.
What's more, Jackson still shows very good bat speed. Optimistically you'd like to see him cut down on the strikeouts without sacrificing any of his plus power. Looking at this video, I think he can...
