Cubs Outfielder Brett JacksonWill Not Participate in Arizona Fall League 2010 – Wrigley Field 11/8/10

Posted on 08 November 2010 by Lou

The Cubs top outfield prospect – Brett Jackson – will not participate in the Arizona Fall League as expected.  Jackson was diagnosed with a calf infection and doctors feel that shutting him down is in his best interests.  Jackson was the Cubs top pick in the 2009 Draft.  He had dealt with a heel injury for Team USA earlier this year, but GM Jim Hendry has said that the calf injury is unrelated.  Jackson is expected to make a full recovery and Hendry is not worried that this will set him back in his development in the least.  Hendry confirmed that Jackson has played plenty of ball the last 18 months and that he will be ready for Spring Training 2011.  It is unlikely that Jackson will make the major league roster coming out of spring training, but look for Jackson to have an impact soon a la Tyler Colvin…
