ANAHEIM -- Tigers utility infielder Ramon Santiago was briefly hospitalized on Saturday with dehydration symptoms and was held out of Sunday's starting lineup as a precaution.

Manager Jim Leyland's original plan for Sunday was to rest Jhonny Peralta, who entered the game 2-for-22 off Angels starter C.J. Wilson, in favor for Santiago. However, Santiago reported stomach issues and was examined by the team medical staff.

Soon, Santiago was transported to a nearby medical center, where he received two bags of intravenous fluids.
