Robertson leaves with groin strain
Word from the Tigers is that Nate Robertson left Friday’s game with a
left adductor strain, essentially a groin strain. The replay on his
final hit allowed, Vernon Wells’ double to right, shows Robertson
possibly tweaking something in that area when he rushed to cover home
plate as Adam Lind rounded third.
UPDATE: Robertson underwent an MRI late Friday night to determine the severity. At the very least, manager Jim Leyland said, he is expected to miss his next turn in the Tigers rotation. Catcher Gerald Laird indicated that the injury seemed to be bothering him well before that play.
