Austin Jackson with another hitless night

Austin Jackson batted eighth for the Giants and went hitless on Tuesday. His average now stands at .224. Gorkys Hernandez is thought to be the best defensive center-fielder on the team, and he's hitting .298. Gregor Blanco is an able defender also, and he's hitting .268. It may not be long until Jackson starts losing playing time, especially went Mac Williamson is ready to come off the DL and play left field, as that will cause Blanco and Hernandez out of left.

Fantasy Impact

Jackson is in a shared starter's role for center. With current trends, he might start getting less than the greater share. This makes him less than fantasy worthy.

Austin Jackson leaves game with tight groin Wednesday

Austin Jackson left last night's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks in the sixth inning with what is being described as a tight groin. The move was considered precautionary, and Jackson is day-to-day.

Fantasy Impact

Giants manager Bruce Bochy does not sound concerned about the injury, but expect Jackson to be out at least another day. More importantly for fantasy owners, Jackson is currently stuck in a platoon in the San Francisco outfield and has been hitting the bench against most right-handers. Until he starts playing more consistently, his fantasy value is extremely limited in 2018.

Austin Jackson with two hits Tuesday

Austin Jackson started the season hitting .083. He's been pretty hot since, raising his average to .241. He was 2-for-4, with an intentional walk and a stolen base Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Austin Jackson is the starting center fielder only about 70% of the time, so isn't fantasy worthy in most leagues.
