Tigers | Austin Jackson activated, Avisail Garcia optioned

Detroit Tigers OF Austin Jackson (hamstring) has been activated from the 15-day disabled list. He'll be active for the team's series opener versus the Minnesota Twins on Friday, June 14. In a corresponding move, the club has optioned OF Avisail Garcia to Triple-A Toledo. Jackson was 3-for-13 with three singles, a walk and five strikeouts in three games for Toledo during his rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Don't worry about Jackson's results during his rehab assignment and plug him back in there. Garcia figures to get an opportunity at some point again this season, particularly if the club continues to get poor production regularly in left field.
