Ver­lan­der’s MRI test clear

Los Angeles Times - - BASEBALL -

The Detroit Tigers said Mon­day that an MRI exam on pitcher Justin Ver­lan­der’s groin in­jury was clean, show­ing no ev­i­dence of struc­tural dam­age, and he will be eval­u­ated as the week pro­gresses.

The 2011 Cy Young Award win­ner left his start Sun­day against the Chicago White Sox in the third in­ning be­cause of tight­ness in his right groin. The team said the date of his next start is un­de­ter­mined. Etc.

The Wash­ing­ton Na­tion­als placed out­fielder Jayson Werth on the 10-day dis­abled list be­cause of a bruised left foot and pro­moted util­i­ty­man Ryan Raburn from triple-A Syra­cuse be­fore the start of their three-game se­ries at Dodger Sta­dium. Werth fouled a ball off his toe Satur­day against Oak­land and sat out Sun­day’s game. X-rays were neg­a­tive for frac­tures . . . . Out­fielder Hunter Pence, on the DL since May 13 be­cause of a ham­string strain, was ac­ti­vated by the San Fran­cisco Giants, who op­tioned rookie in­fielder Chris­tian Ar­royo to triple-A Sacra­mento. Ar­royo, 22, is hit­ting .192 with three home runs and 14 RBIs . . . . The Chicago Cubs placed closer Wade Davis on pa­ter­nity leave and re­called right-han­der Dy­lan Floro from triple-A Iowa. Davis and his wife, Kate­lyn, are ex­pect­ing their sec­ond child.
