Ordonez pulled his oblique muscle in the third inning of a 7-6 win over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night.

Ordonez is hitting .307 with 12 home runs and 50 RBI. He hit .363 last season to win the American League batting title.

To replace Ordonez on the roster, Detroit recalled the contract of outfielder Matt Joyce from Triple-A Toledo.

It will be Joyce's second stint with the Tigers this season. He hit .208 with five home runs and 10 RBI in 18 games in his first stay in Detroit. Joyce has 13 home runs and 41 RBI and is hitting .270 at Toledo.
