Jackson will be skipped in rotation

|
ST. PETERSBURG -- D-backs manager A.J. Hinch said on Sunday that the team will definitely rest Edwin Jackson, who tossed a remarkable 149 pitches in Friday's no-hitter, until next "Friday or Saturday."

Jackson was scheduled to make his next start on Wednesday at St. Louis.

Who will replace him is still a mystery, though, as Hinch will wait until after Sunday's Interleague finale with Tampa Bay to make his decision.

"It all depends on the game [Sunday] and how the starters and bullpen go in the next [couple] games," Hinch said when asked if the team would use someone from the current roster or call someone up from the Minors. "If we've used our bullpen, we wouldn't have anybody available."
