Jackson is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Phillies, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson is hitting just .143/.176/.245 with 17 strikeouts through 14 games this month, so he'll head to the bench Tuesday to hit the reset button. In his absence, the Mets will deploy Michael Conforto, Brandon Nimmo and Jay Bruce in their outfield from left to right.

Jackson is not in the lineup for the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson was on the bench Saturday and Sunday but returned to the lineup for the next two games. Dominic Smith starts at first base Wednesday, pushing Jay Bruce to right field and Brandon Nimmo over to Jackson's center field spot.

Jackson is not in the lineup Saturday against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson sits for the second straight game after starting 24 of 25 contests. The rebuilding Mets have little reason to give at-bats to a veteran hitting just .266/.322/.343, so they'll instead give Dominic Smith a start in left field, pushing Brandon Nimmo to center.

Jackson is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson sits after starting 24 of the last 25 games. He hit just .233/.275/.282 over that stretch. Brandon Nimmo will slide over to center field, with Jay Bruce starting in right.

Jackson will start in center field and bat seventh Sunday against the Giants, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

There was some thought that Jackson's role might decline when Jay Bruce was reinstated from the disabled list Aug. 24, but it's instead been Wilmer Flores who has been most adversely affected. With Bruce settling into regular duty at first base and Jose Bautista having recently been traded to the Phillies, it looks like Jackson could have a clear path to outfield reps the rest of the season. Jackson will draw his seventh consecutive start in the series finale.

Jackson is out of the lineup versus the Nationals on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson will head to the bench for a breather following 14 straight starts, during which he's hit .242/.277/.323 with a pair of RBI and 20 strikeouts. With the return of Jay Bruce (hip) from the DL, Jackson will likely see him playing time decrease moving forward.

Jackson went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Friday's 4-2 loss to Philadelphia.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson cut the deficit to two in the eighth inning on an RBI single to left field, but the Mets would end up taking the loss. He's been heating up at the plate recently, as he's pieced together a modest four-game hitting streak, going 9-for-20 with four extra-base hits and one RBI over that span. Jackson is hitting .292 with two homers and 23 RBI through 79 games in 2018.

Jackson went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Monday's 6-4 win over Cincinnati.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson pushed the lead to three in the first inning on a single to left field. He's recorded a base knock in each of his previous three games, going 6-for-10 with three RBI, a home run and a walk over that span. Jackson is slashing .269/.335/.349 with a .684 OPS through 68 tilts this season.

Jackson went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

After struggling to a .604 OPS with zero homers in 59 games as a Giant, Jackson's bat has snapped to life since joining the Mets. He now boasts a .364/.440/.636 slash line with two home runs and a steal in eight games in his new uniform, and while the 31-year-old should soon fall back to earth, he figures to see regular playing time until he does.

Jackson will start in center field and bat sixth Sunday against the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson will be included in the starting nine for the sixth time in seven games after producing a trio of two-hit performances during that stretch. The Mets have facilitated room in the lineup for Jackson of late by moving Jose Bautista to third base, though that will no longer be a regular option now that Todd Frazier is off the disabled list. As a result, Jackson and Bautista may soon have to battle one another for playing time in the outfield alongside entrenched starters Brandon Nimmo and Michael Conforto.
