Detroit Tigers second baseman Jonathan Schoop left Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Angels with a right ankle injury.

Schoop was trying to score from second base in the second inning on a single to right field by Tucker Barnhart. He tried to avoid the tag by Angels catcher Max Stassi before going to the ground and grabbing his right ankle.

Kody Clemens took over at second base before the start of the third inning.

Schoop, 30, is batting .202 with nine home runs and 34 RBIs in 115 games for the Tigers this season. In 10 major league seasons, he is batting .255 with 172 home runs and 533 RBIs for the Baltimore Orioles (2013-18), Minnesota Twins (2018-19) and Tigers (2020-22).

Clemens, 26, is the son of former pitcher Roger Clemens. He made his major league debut May 31 and was batting .120 with three home runs and nine RBIs in 37 games before entering Saturday’s contest.
