Austin Jackson Injury: Tigers' CF Exits Game With Mild Abdominal Strain, Day-To-Day

Detroit Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson left Wednesday night's game against the Minnesota Twins after the bottom half of the fourth inning. Jackson made the last out of the inning by flying out to right field and was seen in the dugout talking with trainer Kevin Rand before walking into the clubhouse. Don Kelly replaced Jackson in center field the next half.

Fox Sports Detroit broadcasted a couple innings later that Jackson was diagnosed with a mild abdominal strain and is day-to-day.

Jackson has been one of the Tigers' best hitters this season, entering Wednesday's game with a .323/.409/.950 hitting line and was 2-for-3 with a run batted in and two runs scored when he exited the game with his injury.
