I've never been more excited to be back on the field," he said. "When you're not playing well, the game's not fun. I wasn't having fun last year -- I was hurt and struggling. I rediscovered that fun a little bit this offseason. I feel I'm in the best physical shape I've been in and the best mental state I've been in in a long time. I'm very confident coming into camp and am excited to be part of this new regime." Jackson was given an offseason program by the Cubs that included improving his mental approach to the game. Jackson also said he made some slight changes to his approach at the plate. "The changes I was trying to make last year had all the right intentions and all the right cues for me to become a better player," he said. "However, I was fighting my nature, I was fighting who I was as a natural athlete and I think that made my time at the plate a struggle. Having said that, I'm thankful for last year and I'm thankful for what happened and overcoming the injuries I had and the challenges I had at the plate and on the field. I feel the best I've felt moving into spring training."

Jackson hasn't played in the outfield since April 15 and has been limited to pinch-hitting and DH duties the last few weeks. "Frustrated," Jackson said. "I want to be out there helping the team win. Even DH-ing didn't feel like enough. But it is what it is. We'll move forward the best we can." Prior to going on the disabled list, Jackson was batting .219 with two doubles, two triples, two home runs and nine RBI in 19 games. Unfortunately, his strikeout problems have persisted. Jackson, who struck out 158 times in the minors and 59 times in the majors last season, has struck out 24 times this year. "We're working on getting him in a better position earlier to put the ball in play," Iowa hitting coach Brian Harper said. "He's making some adjustments -- starting to swing the bat better."
