The Detroit Tigers placed first baseman Miguel Cabrera on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right groin.
Cabrera, batting .268 with three homers, was injured while diving for a ground ball in the sixth inning of the Tigers’ game against the Minnesota Twins on Friday night.
To fill his spot on the roster, the Tigers recalled catcher John Hicks from triple-A Toledo.
In Saturday’s game, Detroit center fielder JaCoby Jones was taken to a hospital after getting hit in the face by a pitch during the third inning. Ausmus said the 24-year-old rookie had a “nasty split lip” and was undergoing a CT scan.
