DETROIT (AP) -- Detroit center fielder Austin Jackson has been put on the 15-day disabled list because of a pulled right hamstring.
The team announced the move Monday. It is retroactive to Sunday, when Jackson missed a game against Cleveland following the injury. The Tigers recalled outfielder Avisail Garcia from Triple-A Toledo.
Jackson is hitting .272 with a team-high five steals. Detroit must now play on with a new leadoff hitter -- and the Tigers will miss Jackson's defense in the spacious outfield at Comerica Park.
Garcia hit .319 in 47 at-bats toward the end of last season, playing well enough that he made Detroit's postseason roster.
