Conor Jackson


Jackson was hit on the left forearm with a pitch in the bottom of the fifth Monday and left the game after the inning ended. X-rays were negative and he's day-to-day.


Jackson made his first major league start in left field on Sunday. The 23-year-old rookie played most of the 2004 season in left field at both high Class-A Lancaster and Double-A El Paso before shifting to first base this spring. He still played some left field for Triple-A Tucson as well.


After San Francisco's three-game sweep of Arizona this weekend, leaving the Diamondbacks eight games behind in the National League West race, look for Jackson to play more. He shares first-base duties with veteran Tony Clark, who is enjoying one of his best big league seasons in 2005.


The Arizona Diamondbacks have purchased Jackson's contract from Triple-A Tucson, filling the roster spot of struggling outfielder Jose Cruz, who was designated for assignment late Wednesday. One of the organization's top prospects, the 23-year-old Jackson will split time at first base with veteran Tony Clark, according to manager Bob Melvin. In 93 games with the minor league club this season, he was batting .354 with eight home runs and 73 RBI.
