As first reported by MLB.com’s Jason Beck, Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson was removed from Wednesday’s game against the Twins after suffering a mild abdominal strain on a fifth-inning swing.

Jackson is being called “day-to-day.” He’s likely to sit out of Thursday’s matinee with Minnesota but shouldn’t require a stint on the disabled list.

The 25-year-old center fielder was 2-for-3 with two runs scored and an RBI before departing. He’s now batting .331/.414/.544 with five home runs, 29 runs scored and 17 RBI in 36 games this season.

    Hopefully it’s nothing serious. He’s been great for the Tigers so far. He actually resembles a leadoff hitter now.
