Tigers | Austin Jackson still having trouble

Detroit Tigers OF Austin Jackson (hamstring) has resumed taking batting practice, but he is still not close enough to begin a minor-league rehab assignment. He felt soreness after running the bases at 80 percent Friday, May 31. The plan is for Jackson to start running the bases again sometime this week.

Fantasy Tip: With Jackson sidelined, Avisail Garcia continues to see a bulk of the starts in center field, especially since Don Kelly has not been hitting. Garcia is worth using in AL-only leagues since he is seeing regular at-bats.
