DETROIT (AP) -- Tigers right fielder Magglio Ordonez left the game Saturday night against the Colorado Rockies because of spasms in his side.
Ordonez appeared to pull up as he went after Troy Tulowitzki's leadoff double off the right field wall in the top of the third. After he threw the ball back in, Detroit trainer Kevin Rand came out to Ordonez, talked to him for a minute and escorted him off the field.
The team said he has spasms in his right oblique and lat. He will be evaluated further on Sunday.
Ordonez had singled in his only at bat on Saturday and is hitting .307 with 12 home runs and 50 RBI. He hit .363 last season to win the American League batting title.
