Pass Do not add player (in most circumstances)



Conor Jackson, OF, Oakland Athletics

Oakland Athletics OF Conor Jackson
More OF filler

The A's activated Co-Jack (hamstring) last night and threw him into the lineup in left. He belted a solo homer for his club's only hit of the contest last night against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Jackson is hitting .245 with, now, two ding dongs and 25 runs scored in 200 at-bats. It has been another trying season for the former member of the Arizona Diamondbacks who missed most of 2009 with Valley Fever.

Jackson has trouble staying healthy, it seems, so he's not dependable. He'll play often, but not every day, and Oakland is likely to recall Chris Carter in September. Still, signs are positive for a considerable improvement in his batting average. How much will that help you, is the question.

Shallow mixed: Pass
