Worth done for the season with dislocated shoulder

Reserve infielder Danny Worth dislocated his left shoulder diving for a ball in a game in Kansas City on Sept. 6, and it’s an injury that will end his season.

“Danny Worth is not available to do anything. ... We haven’t had Danny Worth. He had a displacement of the shoulder when he dove for that ball. It’s not responded to the point where he’s going to be able to play,” Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. “There’s no fracture or anything. It’s just not gonna be ready to be available for the rest of the year. ... He’s gonna take the year-end physical (Tuesday) and go home.”

Worth appeared in just four games with the Tigers after his September call-up, getting two at-bats. He was one of the final cuts in spring training, then had his Triple-A season slowed by a heel injury in April. He hit .223 for the Mud Hens after returning.
