Jackson (knee) had a follow up MRI that showed some improvement, Connor McKnight of the White Sox reports. Jackson will now begin increasing his non-impact activity and is expected to miss several more weeks. The 29-year-old has only played three games since the start of June, but will hope to get back to action in August and finish the season on a good note as the White Sox center fielder.
Jackson (knee) had surgery Wednesday to repair the meniscus in his left knee, the Chicago Tribune reports. The team expects to re-assess his condition in about four weeks. That timeline could put him on pace for a late-July/early-August return.
Jackson (meniscus tear) will miss at least six weeks, Bruce Levin of 670thescore.com reports. Jackson was already expected to be out until the All-Star break, but this now pushes his return to at least late July. Adam Eaton and J.B. Shuck will take over in center, while Jason Coats was recalled to fill Jackson's roster spot.
The White Sox placed Jackson on the 15-day disabled list Friday with a torn meniscus in his left knee. Further details regarding Jackson's injury were not immediately provided, but he is presumably dealing with an injury that could keep him out until sometime beyond the All-Star break. The White Sox figure to provide more information soon, but with Jackson out, J.B. Shuck and Adam Eaton figure to assume the center field duties on the South Side.
Jackson went 2-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored against the Nationals on Tuesday. This was Jackson's first game in over a week due to turf toe, yet he showed little signs of rust. He was on one of the team's better runs before the injury, and it looks like he will stick in the second spot of the lineup for now.
