Austin Jackson left the game early Thursday night. There's a chance he won't be back until after the All-Star break. Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland removed Jackson from the game after two innings due to left wrist soreness. The wrist has bothered Jackson on and off for some time. "We've already had it checked out," Leyland said. "It's nothing serious." Leyland said he discussed the injury with Jackson earlier in the day during batting practice. "He said, 'I can use my legs, I can bunt, I can get on,' but after I saw his first at-bat swinging, I could tell he was in some pain," Leyland said. "The All-Star break's coming up. I'm just going to watch him real close."
