D'Backs Conor Jackson Deal Dismissed in Chicago

With Jeff DaVanon returning from the disabled list to a crowded Diamondbacks clubhouse, manager Bob Melvin tried young first baseman Conor Jackson in the outfield as teammates clamored for playing time.

A report that Jackson was run out there to be showcased for a trade to the White Sox drew a laugh from the front office in Chicago, according to the Arizona Republic. Jokingly the White Sox communication suggested: "Let us know next time you're showcasing someone for us."
