Add another injury to the list of things ailing Tigers third baseman Nick Castellanos.
Castellanos, who has been dealing with a sore groin and wrist for the past week, injured the tip of his right index finger in batting practice Tuesday afternoon, knocking him out in the first inning of Tuesday's 7-6 loss to the Rangers. The team says he's listed day to day.
"We felt like he could play, but after the first inning, he decided that he wasn't able to play through it," Ausmus said via MLB.com. "I applaud the effort trying to play through it, but he felt like it affected him so negatively it would affect the outcome of the game."

Castellanos said that while his finger is sore, it was the wrist injury that caused him to exit the game early.
"This wrist has been kind of sore the past couple of days," Castellanos stold MLB.com, "so I've been wearing tape on it. I've been able to suck it up because I've been able to dominate [my swing] with [the right] hand right now hitting. Well, I can't really dominate with that hand [with the finger bruised], so now [the left] hand took over, and the swing against [Cole] Hamels didn't feel too well. I didn't think I could help the team with my at-bats tonight, so I let [manager] Brad [Ausmus] know."
Despite the sore wrist, Castellanos had hit safely in seven of his last eight games. He hit .406 with five doubles and three RBI over the eight-game stretch.
