Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland said OF Austin Jackson (hamstring) is feeling better and expects Jackson to come off the 15-day disabled list when he is eligible.
Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Jackson will only miss one more week because of his hamstring injury. Owners should add him back to their starting lineups once he returns.

The Detroit Tigers placed OF Austin Jackson (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list with a right hamstring pull Monday, May 13, and recalled OF Avisail Garcia from Triple-A Toledo in a corresponding move. Jackson's DL stint will be retroactive to May 12.
Fantasy Tip: Don Kelly started in center field yesterday with Jackson out, but he might have just been a one-game replacement. Although he doesn't have the range he once had, Torii Hunter could slide over to center, which would allow the Tigers to place Garcia in right field. Garcia's season is off to a slow start thanks to a heel injury, but he represents the most upside out of the group that includes Kelly and Matt Tuiasosopo. Andy Dirks should continue to see consistent playing time in left. The outfield arrangement could be very fluid, though, so deep mixed leaguers speculating on increased playing time might have to be patient.

Detroit Tigers OF Austin Jackson, who stole a career-low 12 bases last year, is expected to increase that total in 2013 after the team hired new base running consultant Jeff Cox.
