Jackson batted seventh and went 2-for-4 in Sunday's 9-5 win over the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

After beginning the season as the Giants' starting center fielder, Jackson has fallen into a platoon role behind a combination of Gregor Blanco, Gorkys Hernandez and occassionally Brandon Belt. His struggles at the plate have even led to the veteran dropping from first to seventh in the order when he does start against southpaws. The 31-year-old is posting career-worst marks in terms of strikeouts (35.4 percent) and isolated power (0.53), and a career-high .406 BABIP indicates that he may be over-performing with a mediocre .248 batting average. With Mac Williamson (concussion) nearing a return, Jackson's status with the club may be reduced even further if he doesn't turn things around quickly.

Jackson went 1-for-4 with two RBI in Friday's 11-2 loss to the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

His bases-loaded single in the top of the fourth inning very briefly brought the Giants level at 2-2 before things fell apart. Jackson hasn't had much success at the plate this season, slashing .222/.297/.256 in 27 games, but eight of his 11 RBI have come in his last nine contests, during which he's hitting .292 (7-for-24).

Jackson is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Phillies, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran is hitting a disappointing .224/.295/.259 so far this season. He can hardly blame BABIP luck, as his BABIP stands at a very high .373, suggesting that he's been lucky, if anything. What he can certainly blame is a 36.8 percent strikeout rate, a number well above his career average of 23.4 percent. Gorkys Hernandez will start in his place Wednesday.

Jackson is out of the lineup Sunday against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson will head to the bench for Sunday's game, giving way to Gorkys Hernandez in center field. Although he went 2-for-4 with three RBI during Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Dodgers, Jackson's bat has been quiet for much of the season. After 19 games he owns an unimpressive .214/.253/.243 line.

Jackson got the start in center field for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Dodgers and went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI in an 8-3 win.

EDGE Analysis

Injuries in the Giants' outfield continue to allow Jackson to see semi-regular playing time, but the veteran hasn't done much with them, slashing .214/.253/.243 through 75 plate appearances. Both Hunter Pence (thumb) and Mac Williamson (concussion) could be back by the beginning of May, however, pushing Jackson firmly into a bench role.

EDGE Analysis

Jackson will man center field during the series finale though the Giants have yet to release their updated batting order at this point in time. Over 15 appearances this season, Jackson is hitting just .211/.258/.228 with one extra-base hit, three RBI and 23 strikeouts in 57 at-bats.
