DETROIT (AP) -Tigers rookie pitcher Andrew Miller was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday because of a left hamstring strain.
Miller left Friday night's 7-4 loss to the Chicago White Sox after four innings. He injured the hamstring on his last pitch of the fourth inning, and couldn't warm up for the fifth.
``The doctors say it is very mild and I should miss very little time,'' Miller said.
Miller allowed six runs and seven hits and left with the Tigers trailing 6-3. He took the loss.
The 22-year-old lefty is 5-4 with a 4.42 ERA in 11 starts. Miller was Detroit's first-round draft pick out of North Carolina in 2006.
To take Miller's spot on the roster, the Tigers recalled right-handed pitcher Fernando Rodney (1-5) from Triple-A Toledo and reinstated him from the disabled list. He has been sidelined since June 24 because of right shoulder tendinitis.
