The Tigers picked up a 3-1 victory over the Royals on Thursday night, staying within a game-and-a-half of the American League Central-leading Indians.
But the evening wasn’t all positive.
According to Shawn Windsor of the Detroit Free Press, center fielder Austin Jackson had to leave the contest after the second inning due to “tenderness” in his left wrist. X-rays taken shortly after his exit were negative, but the 24-year-old has been fitted with a splint and might not return to the Tigers’ lineup until after the All-Star break.
Jackson is batting just .245/.318/.361 through 379 plate appearances this season, his second with the Tigers. He finished second in Rookie of the Year voting last year after tallying a whopping 181 hits in 151 games.
