CLEVELAND (AP) — Detroit placed center fielder and leadoff hitter Austin Jackson on the 15-day disabled list with an abdominal strain.

The move, retroactive to May 17, was made Thursday following a 2-1 loss to Cleveland that completed a three-game sweep.

Batting .331 and setting the table for Detroit’s power hitters, Jackson has been out since he got hurt on a swing May 16. He was in the lineup Tuesday, but aggravated the injury during batting practice.

While the Tigers travel to Minnesota on Friday, Jackson will return to Detroit for tests.

Infielder Ryan Raburn will return from the bereavement list and take Jackson’s roster spot.

Detroit optioned right-hander Luke Putkonen to Triple-A Toledo to make room for right-hander Luis Marte, who had been on the DL with a hamstring strain.
