David Schoenfield SweetSpot blogger 

The Cubs make a good little pickup in Austin Jackson, who has hit .314 since the All-Star break. He not only provides center field depth behind Dexter Fowler but could emerge as the starting right fielder with Jorge Soler now on the DL with an oblique strain. Considering Soler's .148 average against offspeed pitches, I'd give Jackson the shot in right, even though he's never played there in the majors.
