Brett Jackson hasn't been able to make it as a big-league player, but apparently he's getting a shot to play one on TV.
The former Cubs top prospect is reportedly going to be in several scenes on the FOX series "Pitch" that debuts Thursday night:
The series is about the first female pitcher in Major League Baseball history and features Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar).
Jackson - on the right in the photo above - received a 44-game stint in Chicago in 2012, but hit .175 with a .644 OPS and never made it back up to the big leagues with the Cubs.
He was traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks in August 2014 and appeared in seven games at the big-league level.
In December 2014, the San Francisco Giants selected Jackson in the Rule 5 Draft. He played 51 games with the Giants' Triple-A affiliate in Sacramento, but struggled again to the tune of a .220 average and .645 OPS and has been out of baseball since.
Jackson - 28 - is not credited for the role in "Pitch" in advance of the series premiere.
