The Detroit Tigers have placed utility player Ryan Raburn on the fifteen-day disabled list with a strained right quad, the team has announced:

Not only have the Tigers placed Raburn on the DL, but they’ve sent him home, according to Scott Miller of CBSSports.com. Following the announcement, manager Jim Leyland said of Raburn, "He just can’t play. He’s hurt. …there’s no sense sitting around here."

Raburn’s season for the Tigers has been beyond disappointing, as the 31-year-old has only mustered a clip of .171/.226/.254 with fourteen doubles and one home run over 205 at-bats.

Though he’s been a productive player in past seasons for the Tigers, Raburn is a non-tender candidate this offseason based on his 2012 totals. Over seven seasons in the majors, all with the Tigers, Raburn owns a career line of .256/.311/.430.
