Tigers place struggling RHP Kenta Maeda on 15-day IL

The Detroit Tigers placed right-handed starter Kenta Maeda (viral illness) on the 15-day injured list Saturday, retroactive to Wednesday, and recalled outfielder Akil Baddoo.

Maeda appears to be the latest to catch a bug going through the Tigers players and staff over the past week or so.

Detroit outfielder Mark Canha was out of action for a few games due to illness.

Maeda’s most recent start, Tuesday at the Cleveland Guardians, ended early after the veteran allowed three walks, five hits and seven runs in only two innings.

Maeda, 36, saw his ERA rise to 6.75 over seven starts this season.

Baddoo, 25, was hitting .257 with four home runs and 11 stolen bases in 30 games at Triple-A Toledo this season.

Matt Manning is expected to be recalled to start Monday’s game against the Miami Marlins. Manning was scratched from his Saturday assignment at Toledo.
