A 10-year Minor League veteran, Jacobs went to the Canaries in a trade with the Can-Am League's Sussex County Miners in the 2016-17 offseason. Jacobs's power bat made a big impact for the Birds in 2017; he finished second on the team in home runs (21) and slugging percentage (.517) while notching a .293 batting average. The North Carolina native was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 17th round of the 2007 MLB draft. Jacobs, 29, would spend time in the Dodgers, White Sox and Cardinals organizations, getting as high as Triple-A in 2015.
