Nunez is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Angels.

Nunez has started each of the Tigers' last six games at either first base or designated hitter, going 5-for-22 with two home runs and four RBI. Until the Tigers return Niko Goodrum (groin) from the injured list, Nunez should be fairly secure in a near-everyday role, though he'll get a breather Thursday in the series finale with Los Angeles.
