Mariners notebook: Jackson reclaims duties as leadoff hitter and center fielder

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Austin Jackson returned Tuesday to the Seattle Mariners, starting in center field, batting leadoff and insisting he is completely recovered from a sprained right ankle. “It’s been feeling a lot better,” he said. “I’ve played some (rehab) games in center field, and I was able to cut on it. And being able to stop on a dime is always a good sign especially when you rolled your ankle like that.” The Mariners, officially, activated Jackson from the disabled list prior to Tuesday’s game against Tampa Bay at Tropicana Field after announcing their intention to...

Roster shuffle continued: Farquhar down, Jackson up

Danny Farquhar becomes the victim of Austin Jackson's ankle being deemed ready for big leagues again. Last night it was announced that Danny Farquhar would be sent down to Tacoma in order to make room on the Seattle Mariners roster for Austin Jackson.  Jackson has been out with a bum ankle since May 4 and, as of last night, was activated off of the disabled list.  The move adds yet another player to the Mariners "outfield" but more importantly, adds a player who has played in this department for most of their career.  Since Jackson's demotion the Mariners have been holding the outfield...

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Whenever outfielder Austin Jackson returns to active duty — and it should be any day now — the Seattle Mariners face an interesting roster decision. What corresponding roster move do they make? Club officials aren’t tipping their hand beyond manager Lloyd McClendon saying Jackson “seems to be progressing real well. I would say we’ll probably make a decision real soon. Sometime this week.” Let’s look at the possibilities: ***Brad Miller has options and once seemed a good bet to head to Triple-A Tacoma in order to hone the defensive skills required in...

SEATTLE — Start the rehab clock on Seattle Mariners outfielder Austin Jackson, who began a minor-league rehab assignment Saturday for Triple-A Tacoma against Las Vegas (Mets) at Cheney Stadium. Jackson suffered a sprained right ankle May 3 while running out a ground ball in third inning of a 7-6 loss at Houston. He tested his recovery from the ankle in recent days through a increasingly strenuous series of drills. Rehab assignments can last up to 20 days for non-pitchers, but Jackson is expected to return within a week. He is eligible for activation as soon as Tuesday’s series opener at...

Chris Taylor, Joe Beimel called up, Austin Jackson to DL

Austin Jackson's ankle and Brad Miller's arm make way for the first major shakeup of the season. Austin Jackson, last night: Austin Jackson said he's had ankle sprains similar to the one he suffered today. Said they didn't keep him out for too long. — Ryan Divish (@RyanDivish) May 3, 2015 Words are wind. Austin Jackson was placed on the DL today. When pressed on the plan Lloyd McClendon indicated that Justin Ruggiano will serve as the team's primary center fielder during Jackson's absence. Ruggiano is a capable defender and his overall game has definitely merited more playing time...

HOUSTON — As if losing four games this weekend in Houston wasn’t bad enough, the Mariners also lost center fielder Austin Jackson. For how long is still to be determined. Jackson suffered a sprained right ankle in the third inning Sunday while running out an infield grounder. He walked gingerly from the field under his own power and left the game for evaluation. “It’s not too bad, hopefully,” Jackson said. “I’ve sprained my ankle a few times in the past. That kind of helps (give me an idea). It’s not too swollen. It’s just kind of sore right now.” Club officials … ...
