Bits: Brett Jackson an intriguing option

Chicago Cubs outfielder Brett Jackson singled twice and scored a run in his big league debut Sunday. Jackson, called up from Triple-A Iowa earlier in the day, was hitting .256 with a ton of strikeouts but also 15 home runs and 27 stolen bases. He should play regularly and is worth an addition in deep leagues. Expect modest power and steals, but his contact rate limits his batting average upside.
