Jackson is on the seven-day disabled list at Triple-A El Paso, and there is no timetable for his expected return.
Jackson, who is with Triple-A El Paso, has a wrist injury that looks like it will require surgery, according to the report. He is set to report to the team's training staff for examination this week before a decision is ultimately made. A possible timeline for his recovery is not yet known.
Jackson was hitting .214/.267/.286 prior to the injury for El Paso. He appeared in 20 games at the major-league level over the previous two season with the Cardinals.
Jackson has shown versatility in the infield this spring, playing second base, third base and shortstop, and has been impressive defensively. While he isn't a major threat with his bat, he did go 2 for 3 with a triple and a home run in his previous two games heading into Tuesday's action.
Jackson made a brief, seven-game appearance with the Cardinals last season while hitting .278/.352/.346 in 442 at-bats at Triple-A Memphis.
"We'll mix and match over at third," Black said, per MLB.com. "It's good for those guys. It will be great for those guys to get exposed to third base. They'll get some [at-bats], some playing time.
"We know what Chase can do. Here in the short term, it will be good to get those guys exposed. They are up for it."
It will be a good experience for Amarista, who is expected to serve in a utility role for San Diego.
"Alexi's game, for me, is his versatility," Black said. "You look at all the components of his game, he's capable at second, capable at short, capable at third, capable of all three outfield spots. He's a very dependable player on defense. On offense, he's done some things to win some games for us. He can move around the diamond, he doesn't scare off, he plays with energy. He's a good all-around player."
