Jackson is not starting Friday in Washington. Jackson finds himself on the bench for the third time in four games. Brandon Nimmo will take his spot in center field, with Jay Bruce in right.
Jackson is not in the lineup Thursday against the Nationals. Jackson has started seven of the last eight games in center field, going just 3-for-27 with a 12:0 K:BB over that stretch, albeit two of his hits went for extra bases. The Mets will go with Dominic Smith, Brandon Nimmo and Michael Conforto from left to right in their outfield Thursday.
Jackson is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Phillies, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. Jackson is hitting just .143/.176/.245 with 17 strikeouts through 14 games this month, so he'll head to the bench Tuesday to hit the reset button. In his absence, the Mets will deploy Michael Conforto, Brandon Nimmo and Jay Bruce in their outfield from left to right.
Jackson is not in the lineup for the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Marlins. Jackson was on the bench Saturday and Sunday but returned to the lineup for the next two games. Dominic Smith starts at first base Wednesday, pushing Jay Bruce to right field and Brandon Nimmo over to Jackson's spot in center field.
Jackson is not in the lineup Saturday against the Phillies. Jackson sits for the second straight game after starting 24 of 25 contests. The rebuilding Mets have little reason to give at-bats to a veteran hitting just .266/.322/.343, so they'll instead give Dominic Smith a start in left field, pushing Brandon Nimmo to center.
