    Detroit Tigers’ Derek Hill prepared to keep rolling with punches

    Detroit — Call it the curse of the Tigers’ center fielder.

    It’s not a baseball season in Detroit if the center fielder doesn’t sustain a season-ending injury. Or at least that’s been the trend. JaCoby Jones had his 2019 and 2020 seasons ended prematurely and now the same fate has befallen Derek Hill.

    “It’s a long season and this is part of it,” Hill said before the game Tuesday. “When you play a certain way, like me and JJ, things are going to happen. There’s no reason to be frustrated. You play the game hard and things are going to happen. You just have to deal with them as they come.”

    Hill’s season ended Saturday night in St. Petersburgh, Florida, when he spun and fell hard after crossing the bag at first base. The initial diagnosis is a left knee sprain. Manager AJ Hinch said Monday that tests are still being run and opinions being sought.
