The Detroit Tigers have placed outfielder and leadoff man Austin Jackon ont he 15 Day DL with a pulled hamstring. Jackson got off to a hot start with 25 runs in April, batting .286. He added 2 home runs and drove in 10 RBI before the calendar turned to May and things started going south. Austin has just 9 hits in 39 ABs, a .231 avg, and just 1 RBI with 12 Ks. I would say now is a very good time to buy LOW, well worth the risk.
Don Kelly played center field for the Tigers yesterday and Andy Dirks led off. Matt Tuiasosopo should see a nice increase in ABs, making him a valuable AL only player. Detroit called up Avisail Garcia to fill the roster spot.
If you need to replace Austin Jackson with someone not on your bench, try Daniel Nava, Brandon Moss, Chris Carter, Michael Brantley, Gerardo Parra, Alfonso Soriano or Denard Span.
