Tigers place Nomar Mazara on injured list, call up reliever to fill roster spot

The Detroit Tigers placed outfielder Nomar Mazara on the 10-day injured list with a left abdominal strain on Thursday afternoon.

Robbie Grossman, Akil Baddoo, JaCoby Jones and Victor Reyes will split playing time in the three outfield spots.

His absence will create opportunities for Jones and Reyes, whose playing time had been cut because of the emergence of rookie phenom Akil Baddoo.

“In the short term, it’s a punch in the gut to not make the team out of spring training and be given the news that you’re going to the alternate site to continue to work.

Left-handed pitchers (7): Tyler Alexander , Matthew Boyd , Derek Holland , Daniel Norris , Tarik Skubal , Gregory Soto , Joey Wentz.

Outfielders (7): Akil Baddoo , Daz Cameron, Robbie Grossman , Derek Hill, JaCoby Jones , Nomar Mazara*, Victor Reyes .
