Jacobs spent the start of the 2010 season the New York Mets due to injuries on the roster and then by the end of April prospect Ike Davis looked ready to make the jump to the majors. As a result, the Mets designated Jacobs for assignment and then accepted a move to the club’s Triple-A Buffalo team. The Mets traded Jacobs to Toronto for a player to be named a day before the trade deadline in July.

With the Rockies, Jacobs will play first base for the Colorado Springs Sky Sox and give the Rockies another option at the big league level should injuries pop up.

Jacobs began his major league career with the Mets in 2005, but then spent the next three seasons with the Florida Marlins. He best year in the majors was his third and final year with the Marlins when he hit 32 home runs and drove in 93 runs. He play for the Kansas City Royals in 2009 before signing with the Mets prior to the start of the 2010 season.
