Ryan Raburn was placed on the bereavement list on Tuesday.

On Tuesday morning, the Detroit Tigers announced via their official Twitter account that first baseman Ryan Raburn has been placed on the bereavement list. Infielder Danny Worth has been recalled in his place.

At this time there is no explanation as to why Raburn was placed on the list. Per league rules, the bereavement list is used for players who need to leave the team due to a serious illness or death in the player's immediate family. Players who are placed on the list are required to miss a minimum of three games and a maximum of seven games.

Raburn has played in 31 games this season and has a .144 batting average with six RBI and one home run. Worth, who had been playing with Triple-A Toledo, was hitting .306 with seven doubles, a triple, three home runs and seven RBIs in 18 games with the Mud Hens. He hit .176 (3-for-17) in 12 games during two previous stints with the Tigers this season.
