After picking up a hit, shortstop Jordy Mercer was forced to leave the game with a right quad strain. Following the game, the Tigers announced Mercer was being placed on the 10-day injury list.

According to reports, Mercer will be replaced on the roster by infielder Ronny Rodriguez, who is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Toledo.

In 62 games with the Tigers in 2018, Rodriguez batted .220 with five home runs and 20 RBIs.

That being said, when the Major League Baseball trade deadline rolls around later this season, the chances are high that the Tigers will be sellers.
Here is a look at three players who could be move at or before the trade deadline.
