Hill is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rangers.

Hill has started in center field in four of the Tigers' previous five games, going 3-for-11 with three runs and two stolen bases. With Eric Haase expected to spend more time behind the plate for the foreseeable future following Jake Rogers' (arm) placement on the injured list, Hill could fill a near-everyday role in the outfield alongside Akil Baddoo and Robbie Grossman.
