Indians' Austin Jackson: Roster spot hinges on health of others
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson's future with the Indians will depend on the health of left fielder Michael Brantley, who's recovering from shoulder surgery, Paul Hoynes of Cleveland.com reports.

When camp opened, it appeared the Indians could use Jackson to add outfield depth on Opening Day. That could change if Brantley's comeback continues progressing well like it has in recent days. "With Brantley back we probably wouldn't need the same number of plate appearances [from reserve outfielders]," general manager Mike Chernoff said. Jackson is coming off his own health issues that led to season-ending knee surgery last year. However, he appears healthy now and has done all he can to prove it so far in spring training. Jackson is 7-for-21 (.333) with a home run, two doubles, five RBI and four runs through seven Cactus League appearances. A decision on whether he makes the 25-man roster will come down to the wire.

Indians' Austin Jackson: Could make Cactus League debut Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Indians manager Terry Francona said Sunday that Jackson (knee) could make his Cactus League debut as soon as Wednesday against the Mariners, MLB.com's Jordan Bastian reports.

Jackson, who signed a minor-league deal with the Tribe in January, has been eased into spring-training activity while recovering from June surgery to address a torn meniscus. He seems to be coming along nicely as he's increased his involvement in drills, and if all goes well in the next few days, it looks like he could soon see him back in the field. If Jackson performs well in Cactus League play and shows his knee isn't an issue, he could end up settling into a platoon role in center field with Tyler Naquin to open the season.

Indians' Austin Jackson: Hitting without restrictions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (left knee) is no longer restricted with his hitting, but is still gradually working his way up to outfield-specific agility drills, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

The thought has been that Jackson could be ready to race for an Opening Day roster spot, but that looks cloudier each week he continues to lag behind the other outfielders in camp. Manager Terry Francona said the veteran still has a ways to go before he'll be ready to compete with the group. "The biggest thing is he has to be able to make his cuts -- reacting," Francona said. "He's a good center fielder. That's part of his skill set. So, asking him to do it before he's ready isn't fair to anybody." Even if healthy and on the 25-man roster, Jackson is best-suited for deeper leagues at best.

Indians' Austin Jackson: Remains a step behind other hitters
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Indians manager Terry Francona said that Jackson (knee) is still a bit behind the rest of the hitters in camp, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

The veteran outfielder underwent surgery in June to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee, and the recovery process seems to have taken longer than expected to conclude. Jackson is still expected to be ready by the start of the regular season, and if he can get healthy and prove his worth during spring training, he could crack the Opening Day roster as an insurance policy for embattled outfielder Michael Brantley (shoulder).

Indians' Austin Jackson: Signs minor league deal with Indians
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jackson (knee) and the Indians agreed to terms on a minor league deal Wednesday, Buster Olney of ESPN reports.

The soon-to-be 30-year-old has spent time with the Mariners, Cubs and White Sox over the last two seasons after moving on from a three-plus-year stint in Detroit. Jackson, who underwent surgery in June to repair a torn meniscus, appeared in 54 games for the White Sox in 2016, hitting .254 with 18 RBI, 17 walks and 39 strikeouts in 203 plate appearances. While his deal with Cleveland is a minor league pact, it includes roughly $4 million in incentives as well as an opt-out should things not go Jackson's way in spring training. If Jackson fares well, he'll have a chance to make the Opening Day roster as a right-handed-hitting center fielder who would provide insurance behind Michael Brantley (shoulder).
