Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson is eligible to return from the 15-day disabled list Monday, but it appears it could be a bit longer, MLive.com reports. Jackson has not participated in physical activity yet.

“I want it right,” Tigers manager Jim Leyland told MLive.com. “We talked about that today: ‘Get it right.’ I don’t want him to come back 85 percent and try to play and then do it again. Try to get it as close to 100 percent as you can. You might not get it to 100 percent. Who knows.”
