Report: Cubs' Brett Jackson NOT Going to Red Sox

Earlier it was reported that the Cubs and Red Sox were involved in "contentious" talks regarding the compensation the Red Sox would receive in return for General Manager Theo Epstein's services. 

Now it is being reported by Carrie Muskat of MLB.com that Cubs' top prospect, Brett Jackson will not be involved in the Red Sox compensation package. She was asked on Twitter whether or not she knew exactly what the Red Sox were asking for from the Cubs. Her response:

No. But do know #Cubs Brett Jackson is not in the package

Jackson is a 23 year-old outfielder who was ranked as the 37th best prospect by Jim Callis of Baseball America in their most recent prospect handbook. Jackson, however; did not crack Keith Law's updated top 50 prospects for ESPN in July.

Jackson had a combined 20 home runs and 21 steals in 115 games between AA and AAA last season, with a cumulative batting average of .274 and on-base percentage of .379.
