Austin Jackson was in the starting lineup at one point Friday afternoon. A day later, Jackson spoke of the possibility that his injured left wrist could eventually land him on the disabled list. "I think right now we just want to go day-to-day and see how it feels," Jackson said. "I definitely don't want to go on the DL if I can get it better by just a couple days of rest. But you've got to do what you've got to do with the situation. If it turns out I have to go on the DL to get more work done to it, then so be it. That's what I've got to do." Jackson said he felt great following a team workout Thursday night at Comerica Park, and Tigers manager Jim Leyland had him in the starting lineup Friday before replacing him with Andy Dirks about an hour before the game. Dirks was in the starting lineup in center field again Saturday. Leyland used Jackson as a late-inning defensive replacement in two games in Kansas City, but it is unlikely he will do so now, at least not until Jackson is out of danger of going on the disabled list.
