The Detroit Tigers today activated centerfielder Austin Jackson from the disabled list and sent outfielder Avisail Garcia back to Triple-A Toledo. Jackson is expected to play in tonight’s series opener at the Minnesota Twins. Garcia, a rookie, likely was optioned to allow for him to play every day. Also, Don Kelly, the other backup outfielder, has more versatility off the bench, in that he also can play some infield positions.
