It looked pretty bad and Jackson did have to leave the game, but you’ll be happy to know that he ended up with just a bruised right knee. Jackson told Patrick Mooney of CSNChicago.com after the game that he doesn’t plan on toning down his aggressiveness in center field.
“I’ve always been that way,” Jackson said. “I’ll go through a wall for the team.”
Jackson, who was called up from Triple-A Iowa last month, is hitting .191 with 11 extra-base hits (four homers), eight RBI and a 48/16 K/BB ratio over his first 110 plate appearances in the big leagues. Strikeouts were a big problem for him in the minors too, so many question whether he’ll hit enough to be a quality regular in the big leagues, but he sure knows how to go out and get it in center field.
