Jose Mesa Lands on the DL

The Detroit Tigers placed right-handed reliever Jose Mesa on the 15-day disabled list Friday with a pulled right groin muscle. Mesa is 0-1 with a 20.25 ERA in 2.2 innings over four relief appearances.

Detroit recalled righty reliever Aquilino Lopez from the AAA Toledo Mud Hens to fill Mesa's roster spot. Lopez has recorded four saves and hasn't allowed a run over seven appearances - 6.1 innings - without being awarded a decision.
