Jackson on All-Star Outing
Q: How does it feel to play in your first all-star game?
A: It feels great. I'm just glad I got the opportunity to be out here.
Q: They use a DH here, but I know you like to hit. Are you disappointed that you didn't get a chance to do that?
A: No, I'm not disappointed. I'm just happy to be out here with a great group of guys and be able to come out here and have fun. I like getting to hang out with everybody and just enjoy the time we have together.
Q: How do you think you performed (Monday)?
A: I think I did OK. I got behind [Birmingham's Stefan] Gartrell. But I'm just out here for one inning and I'm just trying to make the best pitches I can.
Q: It seemed like the first two hitters you faced made good contact and then you dominated the third hitter. Was there a difference in your approach?
A: There definitely wasn't a difference. The first hitter was [Mobile's Sean] Coughlin and I threw him a two-seamer away and got strike one. Then I threw him a changeup away that I don't think he hit too hard ;he kind of put it in a decent spot. Josh Bell made a good play. The second hitter I just kind of fell behind. I got behind him, but I threw some good pitches there and he just grounded out.
Q: The last time we spoke, you mentioned something about skipping Triple-A. Do you still think that is a possibility?
A: I honestly have no idea what the cards hold for me right now. I'm just trying to go out there and pitch. Wherever they want to send me or whatever they want to do with me. If they want to keep me in Tennessee or move me somewhere, it's up to them.
