    • Indians' Austin Jackson: Not in Thursday's lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Jackson is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Yankees. Jackson heads to the bench for Game 1 of the ALDS while Jason Kipnis will draw the start in center as the Indians go up against right-hander Sonny Gray. Since the beginning of September, Jackson has finally gotten into a groove at the plate, slashing .320/.400/.427 with 19 runs and six RBI. He will likely record some quality time in the field during this series, especially with left-hander CC Sabathia taking the hill for the Yankees on Friday, but is the odd-man out for Thursday's opener with Kipnis, Lonnie Chisenhall and Jay Bruce set to man the outfield.

    • Jackson went 2-for-3 with two runs, an RBI and a pair of walks in Cleveland's 10-1 victory over the White Sox on Friday. The veteran outfielder continues to have a career year at the dish, as his season slash line is up to .321/.390/.487 following this offensive display. If Michael Brantley (ankle) is unable to ramp up his activity enough to return from the disabled list in the coming days, Jackson seems to have earned plenty of playing time during the Indians' postseason run.

      By RotoWire Staff

      Jackson is out of the lineup Thursday against the Twins. Jackson has made the last five starts in left field for Cleveland, but will head to the bench in favor of Lonnie Chisenhall for the series finale. The outfielder may have only played in 83 games this year, but is in the midst of a career season for the Indians, owning a .318 batting average and .869 OPS.

    • Jackson went 2-for-5 with a double, one stolen base and two runs in Wednesday's win over the Angels. Earlier in the month, it looked like Jackson was being squeezed for playing time due to the return of Lonnie Chisenhall (calf) and the expansion to 40-man rosters. However, the veteran outfielder seems to have played himself back into a routine role with his hot stretch of play. Jackson is 10-for-21 (.476) with two walks and seven runs over the team's last five games. He's hitting .320 with an .810 OPS through 50 at-bats this month, and owners in deeper leagues should feel safe deploying him, even in weekly formats.
