Jackson activated from DL, Garcia to Toledo
After a month on the disabled list, Austin Jackson is back in the Tigers lineup. The team recalled him from his rehab assignment and activated him from the DL on Friday ahead of the series opener against the Twins.
Avisail Garcia, who filled in at center field and eventually became close to an everyday presence in the Tigers lineup, was optioned to Triple-A Toledo to make room. He batted .288 (19-for-66) with three doubles, a triple, two home runs and 10 RBIs with the Tigers.
For now, Garcia’s move down preserves the mix of Andy Dirks and Matt Tuiasosopo in left field.
