The Detroit Tigers announced Ryan Raburn was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right quadriceps strain, retroactive to September 11th.

Raburn is hitting .171 with 1 home run and 12 RBI in 2012. Since being recalled from his injury rehab stint with Triple A Toledo on September 1st, Raburn had appeared in 3 games, his only hit in 7 at bats a single in the 6-1 loss to the White Sox on Monday.

After hitting .341 with a .967 OPS in the 2nd half of 2011 (Earning the moniker "2nd Half Raburn"), the 31 year old Raburn was expected to step into a full-time role this season, mostly as a 2nd baseman. He never got untracked offensively, Jim Leyland sticking with the struggling Raburn far longer than most would have in vain hope of jump starting his bat.

It never happened, leading the fan base to viciously turn on the 7 year veteran (and on Leyland whenever he placed Raburn in the starting lineup).

Though he will be eligible to come off the DL before the end of the season, the odds are good we may have seen the last of Ryan Raburn in the Olde English D.
