Jackson was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with a left quad strain.
The injury stems from Sunday's contest against the Twins, in which Jackson was forced to leave the game with tightness. After undergoing further tests Monday, it appears the ailment is serious enough to earn him a second trip to the DL, as he was missed most of May with a toe injury. The prevailing timetable puts him on track to return just prior to the All-Star break, though the team may choose to hold him out until after the Midsummer Classic as a precaution. Right-handed reliever Brandon Armstrong will take his spot on the roster.

Jackson is having his strained left quad scanned Monday to determine the extent of the injury, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
Jackson, who exited Sunday's game with the injury, is currently listed as day-to-day while he recovers, but a trip to the DL could be announced Tuesday if trainers deem it necessary. With Brandon Guyer and Michael Brantley both returning from injuries Monday, the Indians' outfield has suddenly become a difficult space to find playing time, which is troubling news for the 30-year-old. The team will likely update his status in due time.

Jackson left Sundays contest with the Twins after the fourth inning with left quad tightness, The Akron Beacon Journal's Ryan Lewis reports.
Jackson reached on an infield single and took second base on a wild pitch in the bottom of the fourth before Daniel Robertson took his place in the field the next inning. It is not clear when Jackson appeared to suffer the injury, but he should be considered day-to-day for the time being.

Jackson went 3-for-5 with a triple and three RBI in Thursday's win over the Orioles.
The veteran outfielder is making the most of his recent opportunity, hitting .360/.467/.640 with four extra-base hits in his last seven games. He should continue to be a viable short-term option while Michael Brantley (ankle) is on the shelf.

Jackson will start in left field and bat seventh Wednesday against the Orioles.
After Michael Brantley (ankle) landed on the disabled list Monday, it now looks like Jackson is manager Terry Francona's preferred option in left field. With six hits, five walks and five RBI over his last four games, Jackson might make for a quality pickup in AL-only and deeper mixed leagues while he continues to sizzle at the plate.

Jackson is out of the lineup Sunday against the Twins, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
Jackson had been in the lineup in each of the past four games with the opposition trotting out left-handed starters, but he'll move back to the bench for the series finale with right-hander Kyle Gibson on the hill for the Twins. Bradley Zimmer replaces Jackson in center field, batting seventh.

Jackson is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Dodgers.
Jackson had started the previous three games in center field, but that was only because the Indians and faced three consecutive left-handed starters. The 30-year-old seems likely to occupy the smaller end of a platoon in center field with Bradley Zimmer until further notice.

Jackson is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Rockies, MLB.com reports.
Jackson had started in the outfield in four of the previous five games, but his path to regular at-bats could be closed off with the Indians activating Lonnie Chisenhall (concussion) from the 7-day disabled list Tuesday. Chisenhall, Bradley Zimmer and Michael Brantley should represent manager Terry Francona's preferred outfield configuration most nights, with Jackson and/or Daniel Robertson entering the lineup when the Indians face a left-handed starter.

Jackson went 1-for-2 with two runs and a pair of walks Sunday in Kansas City.
The veteran's lone hit was his seventh double of the campaign. He's now on pace to tally 21 two-baggers, which would be his most since 2014 when Jackson split the campaign between Detroit and Seattle. Although the 30-year-old's platoon role is unsuitable for weekly formats, Jackson's .268/.333/.500 slash line offers plenty of value in daily leagues.

Jackson is out of the lineup Thursday against the Athletics, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
Jackson has started four of the last five games for Cleveland, but will take a seat Thursday in favor of Bradley Zimmer in center field. Zimmer, who owns a .974 OPS on the season, represents a serious threat to Jackson's playing time, though manager Terry Francona will still likely try to find ways to get both players in the lineup consistently.
