It’s unclear how the Tigers will replace him in center field. Don Kelly started there in each of the past two games Jackson missed, but it seems unlikely that even Jim Leyland is obsessed enough with Kelly to keep that going.

Garcia has also played some center field in the minors, but he’s been a corner outfielder this season while hitting .426 with two homers and a 1.076 OPS in 14 games.
