Tigers | Austin Jackson might begin rehab soon

Detroit Tigers OF Austin Jackson (hamstring) might be able to start a minor-league rehab assignment by the end of the upcoming road trip. "I'm hoping, possibly, that sometime on this trip, he can go out and get some at-bats," manager Jim Leyland said Tuesday, May 28, "but I can't swear to that." Jackson has yet to be cleared for full baseball activity.

Fantasy Tip: The team is being cautious with Jackson, and fantasy owners will need to be patient. Keep him reserved until he is able to officially return from the DL and prove his health in a few full games before plugging him back into the lineup. As it stands, that appears at least a few weeks off.
