LaRoche (back) could lose playing time in the wake of the team's signing of Austin Jackson on Sunday, the Chicago Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Laroche does not play the outfield, Jackson's arrival will push one of the club's corner outfielders to the DH slot on a more regular basis. Jackson's starts figure to come most frequently against left-handed pitchers, and LaRoche might have sat against those starters anyway (he had a .383 OPS against left-handed pitchers in 2015).
