Detroit has activated Brandon Inge from the disabled list after the third baseman missed three weeks with mononucleosis, optioning Danny Worth back to Triple-A to clear roster space.

Inge, who inked a two-year, $11.5 million extension this offseason, hit just .211 with one homer and a .565 OPS in 52 games prior to being shut down.

He went 7-for-28 (.250) with two homers during a seven-game rehab stint at Triple-A and the Tigers were impressed enough with how the 34-year-old looked to cut the assignment short by at least one game.
