Jackson Rutledge was born on April 1, 1999, to John and Susan Rutledge. Rutledge attended Rockwood Summit High School in St. Louis, Missouri. As a senior in high school, Rutledge went 7-1 with a 1.19 ERA, striking out 84 batters in 41 innings. As a freshman in college, Rutledge attended Arkansas University where he would only pitch 15.1 innings during his freshman season. He was left off of the postseason roster which prompted him to transfer to San Jacinto JC. At San Jacinto as a sophomore this season, Rutledge is carving it up. He has thrown four complete games and is striking out over 14 batters per nine innings. His control hasn’t been bad either, walking about three batters per nine. I’m sure Arkansas is missing him right now. It looks like the transfer was the right decision for Rutledge as he is now viewed as a first-round prospect for the 2019 MLB Draft.
