Serendipity in Fort Myers

Austin Jackson, who is having a spectacular spring for someone who's barely sniffed Triple-A, hit his second home run yesterday. This one might have been a little more fun for Jackson because of who he hit it off -- Jason Jones.

Jones and Jackson were teammates in Trenton, and likely would have been reunited in Scranton this spring, except Jones was taken by the Twins in the Rule 5 Draft.

Jones then made some less-than-laudatory comments about the Yankees in the St. Paul Pioneer Press early in the offseason, making a possible return to the Yankees organization a little awkward.

In addition to Jackson's bomb, former Thunder pitcher Anthony Claggett picked up his first spring win in relief of Phil Hughes.
