CoJack has been very disciplined at the plate all year no doubt, but I wouldn't call him a sleeper. He has been very streaky this month. 2 of the 4 HRs that you are referring to came in one game. He just recently has been showing signs of breaking out of his slump. His big 3 run shot today is a good example. Just yesterday he K'ed 3 times, so I think he is showing as much signs that he is in a slump.
Because of the playing time issue I feel he will have a hard time breaking out of his slumps. Anytime you have a guy that HRs in his first 3 starts in the big leagues on top of his sparkling minor league stats (Quentin), you have to find PT for him. There is no way that he will be left to rot on the bench for the majority of the year.
As for Green playing 1st, I would say the majority of his starts will still be in RF. I also think there will be an even amount of times that Green and CoJack sit. They will not sit Jackson just because Quentin is a great prospect. He will also have his rough period sometime so I would say things will be more the same as they are now than most think. About a quarter of the games Green will play 1st.
