ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) _ Detroit Tigers catcher Brandon Inge was placed on the 15-day disabled list following Saturday night’s game against the Texas Rangers with a separated left shoulder.

Inge, who missed a month and a half last season due to a left shoulder injury, separated the shoulder in the sixth inning on a slide into second base.

The Tigers purchased the contract of catcher Matt Walbeck from their Triple-A farm team in Toledo.

Detroit also moved third baseman Dean Palmer to the 60-day disabled list to make room on the 40-man roster for Walbeck.
