Austin Jackson is on fire since being signed by the Mets in late July. In 11 games since joining the team, he has two home runs, eight RBI and is batting .414.
Jackson, 31, signed a two-year, $6 million deal this past winter with the Giants, with whom he hit just .242 with 8 extra-base hits in 59 games. In early July, the Giants traded him to the Rangers, who released Jackson the next week. The Mets then signed him for the pro-rated league minimum after it was announced that Yoenis Cespedes would miss the rest of the season due to double heel surgery.
"Honestly, I didn't know what to expect coming over," he said after Wednesday's win. "It's one of those things where when your name is in the lineup you do your best to contribute to wins."
