Jackson hadn't hit in the batting cages when he talked to the media before the game, so he was unsure whether he would be available as a pinch-hitter. But he does expect to be back in the starting lineup after the four-day All-Star break.
"There are a million things that could have happened there," Jackson said. "I got out of it pretty fortunate. I took a good shot to the ribs. I've never had a rib issue. It's not broken. Just took a Mike Tyson jab."
Jackson was reaching for the ball up the left-field line and had to come off the bag for a lofted throw from second baseman Jemile Weeks. Andrus crashed into Jackson and fell on top of him. Both players were able to remain in the game.
