New, comments

Just a quick follow-up on the condition of Austin Jackson, who was hit in the head by a pitch of the Dodgers' Ramon Troncoso on Saturday night.

The Freep's John Lowe reports on Twitter:

Leyland said he spoke to Jackson and he seemed OK. Jackson was sent to a local hospital to be sure.

MLB.com's Jason Beck added:

#Tigers Austin Jackson taken to local hospital for precautionary tests, but sounds like he's ok. Teammates say he was talking in clubhouse.

Jackson will not be playing Sunday.
