    Jackson was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

    Impact

    Jackson was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Sunday after missing time with a lower-back injury, but even after firing three scoreless frames during Monday's clash, he's been designated for assignment. He possesses an 11.12 ERA and 2.19 WHIP with a 19:13 K:BB over 28.1 innings this season with Toronto.

    News

    The Blue Jays activated Jackson (back) from the 10-day injured list Sunday.

    Impact

    The Blue Jays have set their rotation for the next two days, so the team's decision to activate Jackson suggests he'll be in line for a bullpen role initially in his return to action. Jackson should be available in Sunday's series finale with the Yankees for multiple innings in relief after the Blue Jays needed five bullpen members to cover the final seven frames of Saturday's 2-1 win after starter Clayton Richard (lat) departed following the second inning. Toronto will require a replacement in the rotation for Richard beginning on July 18 after the lefty was moved to the 10-day IL to clear room on the active roster for Jackson.

    News

    Jackson (back) joined Triple-A Buffalo to start a rehab assignment Wednesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Impact

    Jackson landed on the injured list June 18 with the lower-back injury after giving up seven runs in his previous start. The 25-year-old may not return to the Blue Jays in a starting capacity, instead serving in a multi-inning role out of the bullpen.

    News

    Jackson (back) is throwing from a mound without issue, Alexis Brudnicki of MLB.com reports.

    Impact

    It's not clear exactly where Jackson stands in his recovery, but things are going as planned so far. With him able to throw from a mound, a rehab assignment may not be far off.
