Brett Jackson Is Indeed Joining Team USA

Chicago Cubs News, Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects

As I guessed last week when it was announced that Josh Vitters would be replacing Brett Jackson in the Arizona Fall League, Brett Jackson is indeed joining Team USA next month.

Team USA will first play in the Baseball World Cup during the first two weeks of October before heading off to the Pan Am Games in the second half of the month. Jackson, the Cubs’ top prospect, played for Team USA last year as well.

Jackson will finish out the AAA season with the Iowa Cubs, whose last game is today. From there, it remains unlikely that he’ll becalled up to the Chicago Cubs this month.
