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.
