Brandon IngeThe Tigers have put third baseman Brandon Inge on the 15-day disabled list because of mononucleosis.

CBSSports.com senior writer Danny Knobler confirms Inge was on the team's flight to Chicago last night before being put on the DL. Knobler says the team suspected mono a week ago, but tests came back negative. 

Inge could be out for much longer than 15 days, as mono can cause weakness for months. Reds pitcher Bronson Arroyo was diagnosed with mono in spring training and hasn't missed a start, but that's highly unusual. However, the Tigers hope to get Inge back in two weeks, Knobler reports.

Mononucleosis can sap energy and undo months of training, so even when Inge is over the sickness, it'll take a while to build back his stamina and strength.

Inge has struggled mightily this season, hitting just .211/.279/.286 with one home run in 52 games.

I was shocked to not see Rod Allen and some other media members not diagnosed with mono as well. You know, with all their praise of this guy for years like he was Al Kaline you would have to think they were all lovers. Also suspicious at the same time, negative test a week ago, so he has been feeling sick for a suposed week but still being put in to play, way to go Leyland. This just is another excuse for his poor playing. By the way, bringing up a catcher to replace him? Afraid to bring up one of the two thirdbasemen in Toledo that are doing pretty good? What kind of dirt does he have on Illitch, or Dom, or Leyland to get treated like the golden child.

May be just what the Tigers needed.  Now their pathetic manager can't play the most overrated Tiger I can remember.  Take your time Inge.  Your best days which were average at best are over.

Get well soon Brandon, but just to be safe, perhaps you should take the rest of the year off.....just in case.
