Beforehand, Detroit manager Jim Leyland said that while the hope is that Jackson could be ready to rejoin the Tigers for Friday's series opener at Minnesota, they could be flexible with the plan.
Jackson is expected to play about seven innings in center field for the Mud Hens on Tuesday. The Hens are off on Wednesday, so Jackson will rest before starting at DH or in center on Thursday at Syracuse.
What happens from there depends on how Jackson says his leg feels after running in game conditions.
