Tigers place Jones (back) on IL, recall Reyes

CHICAGO -- The Detroit Tigers placed outfielder JaCoby Jones on the 10-day injured list with a lower back strain and recalled outfielder Victor Reyes from Triple-A Toledo on Thursday.

Jones left the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader in the fifth inning with back spasms. Manager Ron Gardenhire said an MRI showed no structural damage.

Reyes led off and played center field Thursday against the White Sox, finishing with two hits and an RBI to help the Tigers win 11-5. He hit .302 with nine homers and 55 RBIs in 65 games with Toledo.

The Tigers also returned Tyler Alexander to Toledo after the left-hander made his major league debut as the 26th man in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Alexander allowed two runs in five innings in a no-decision. The White Sox came back to win 9-6 in 12 innings and sweep the doubleheader.
