Despite falling off the radar due to a bad case of valley fever, we haven't swayed in our love for Conor Jackson.
The Arizona Diamondbacks first baseman/outfielder, who missed the last five months of what turned out to be a really crappy season for his team, has been tearing it up in the Dominican Republic.
Jackson returned to the states Monday night after hitting .425 with two home runs, 16 RBIs and nine stolen bases in 23 games for Leones del Escogido. That's great news since valley fever, caused by fungi in desert soil and contracted primarily in the Southwest, can become extremely serious.
Welcome back, hot stuff. We get valley fever just from watching you in action.
