Clemson RHP signs with the Mariners

CLEMSON, S.C. - Graduate righthander Tyler Jackson (Piedmont, S.C.) signed a free-agent contract with the Seattle Mariners, announced by the organization. He became the 10th Tiger in 2017 to either be drafted or sign a free-agent deal. Jackson also became the first Tiger to sign a free-agent contract since 2012 (David Haselden).

The graduate transfer, who played his final season at Clemson in 2017, had a 9-1 record, 3.56 ERA, .249 opponents' batting average and 68 strikeouts against only 10 walks in 83.1 innings pitched over 19 appearances (13 starts). His 1.08 walks per nine innings pitched set the Clemson single-season record, while his 6.80 strikeout-to-walk ratio was third best in Tiger history. He tied for third in the ACC and led the team in wins, as Clemson was 13-0 in his 13 starts.

Jackson made his 13th start of the season in the Clemson Regional against Vanderbilt on June 4 and pitched a two-hit shutout in the Tigers' 6-0 victory. He became the first Tiger since 2005 to toss a shutout in an NCAA Tournament contest.

In 198.2 innings pitched over 48 appearances (32 starts) over three seasons, including two at USC Upstate (2015,16), he was 13-9 with a 4.76 ERA and 179 strikeouts against only 39 walks.
