The Mets acquired outfielder Darrin Jackson, an eight-year veteran, from the Toronto Blue Jays on June 11, 1993 in exchange for Tony Fernandez. He made his Met debut the next day against the Philadelphia Phillies and went 0-4. Three days later June 15th Jackson hit a home run for his first hit as a Met. But that was the highlight of his time in Queens. He spent 44 days on the disabled list and when he was in the lineup he hit just .195 with a homer and seven RBIs. The Mets decided not to resign him in the off-season and he signed with the Chicago White Sox.
While with the Mets Jackson wore number 3.
Darrin Jackson also played for the following teams:
Chicago Cuba – 1985, 1987-1989
San Diego Padres – 1989-1992
Toronto Blue Jays – 1993
Chicago White Sox – 1994,1999
Minnesota Twins – 1997
Milwaukee Brewers – 1997,1998
