PLAYERS: Austin Jackson
TEAMS: Detroit Tigers

Although he is eligible to return from the 15-dal disabled list on Monday, Austin Jackson will probably spent a little more time recovering.  The Detroit Tigers do not want to rush the outfielder back from his hamstring injury.  Considering the seemingly large rash of hamstring re-injuries this season, that might be a good idea. Chris Iott of Mlive.com says Tigers' manager Jim Leyland seemed doubtful that Jackson would return from the DL on Monday.  Leyland was clear about his concerns that if Jackson returned too soon, it could cause bigger problems.  The team likely shares Leyland's views on the issue, so Jackson will have to wait until he is closer to 100 percent before making his return. "I want it right," Leyland said. "We talked about that today: 'Get it right.' I don't want him to come back 85 percent and try to play and then do it again. Try to get it as close to 100 percent as you can. You might not get it to 100 percent. Who knows." Jackson suffered the injury a few weeks before the team placed him on the disabled list.  As is often the case with these types of injuries, Jackson tried to play through the pain.  It's not clear whether that caused additional damage or not, but it certainly prevented him from getting the recovery process started sooner. Jackson was hitting .272/.333/.371 at the time of his DL stint.  He has been a solid contributor for the team throughout his career.  Jackson is now in his fourth Major League season - all with the Tigers.  He was drafted in the eighth round of the 2005 draft by the Yankees, but he made his way to Detroit before ever making his Major League debut.  Getting him back will be important to the Tigers' long-term success this season.
