Orioles | Conor Jackson playing well

Baltimore Orioles OF Conor Jackson hit two home runs Tuesday, March 5, and he has a slash line of .313/.353/.750 with five RBIs in six spring training games. Jackson is receiving the chance to prove he belongs on the roster, and so far he has delivered. Manager Buck Showalter said Jackson is finally regaining the strength he lost from valley fever back in 2009. He could become the backup to 1B Chris Davis as well as providing depth in the outfield. He could also platoon at designated hitter with 1B Wilson Betemit, but he'll need to beat out 1B Steve Pearce and 3B Danny Valencia.
