Jackson has had a prolonged fever and cough, and the club plans to put him through a battery of tests, manager A.J. Hinch said before the Diamondbacks played Cincinnati on Tuesday night. Jackson is hitting .182 and has a single in his last 19 at-bats.

In a corresponding move, Arizona reinstated shortstop Stephen Drew from the 15-day disabled list.

The Diamondbacks also optioned righty Bobby Korecky to Triple-A Reno and recalled lefty Clay Zavada from Double-A Mobile.
