As expected, Austin Jackson was designated for assignment yesterday.
Austin Jackson would have been looking to split playing time with Rua and Tocci, two players with more upside, which is why he didn’t have a future in Arlington.
Shin-Soo Choo sat on Wednesday, though Jeff Banister said it isn’t because of his terrible career numbers against Chris Sale and Choo’s on-base streak.
Evan Grant thinks it looks like they were protecting Choo, regardless.
Some defensive misplays were a big part of last night’s loss.
Delino Deshields came out of the game last night after a sixth inning near-collision on a play in the outfield.
