Detroit News:

Tigers radio broadcaster Dan Dickerson missed Tuesday night's game and will miss more after a jogging injury near the team hotel. "From my window, I saw someone lying on the ground near the street, and it turned out to be Dan," Brandon Inge said. Dickerson was taken to a nearby hospital, where tests were being conducted on both legs, Tigers trainer Kevin Rand said. The extent of his injuries was not immediately known, but it's expected he will return home to Detroit today for surgery on his left leg, forcing him to miss the upcoming four-game series in Baltimore...
