As first reported by MLB.com’s Jason Beck, Tigers center fielder Austin Jackson was removed from Wednesday’s game against the Twins after suffering a mild abdominal strain on a fifth-inning swing.

Jackson is being called “day-to-day.” He’s likely to sit out of Thursday’s matinee with Minnesota but shouldn’t require a stint on the disabled list.

The 25-year-old center fielder was 2-for-3 with two runs scored and an RBI before departing. He’s now batting .331/.414/.544 with five home runs, 29 runs scored and 17 RBI in 36 games this season.
