EDGE Analysis

Jackson has started seven of the last eight games in center field, going just 3-for-27 with a 12:0 K:BB over that stretch, albeit two of his hits went for extra bases. The Mets will go with Dominic Smith, Brandon Nimmo and Michael Conforto from left to right in their outfield Thursday.

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 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 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.
