NEW YORK -- Los Angeles Angels outfielder Torii Hunter missed Saturday’s 5-3 loss to the New York Yankees with tightness in his right groin, but doesn’t expect the issue to be a lingering one.

Hunter doesn’t expect to be back in the lineup on Sunday. He thinks he’ll likely return on Monday in Detroit.

"I'll probably get another day," Hunter said. "I'm day-to-day."

Hunter suffered the injury while going after Russell Martin’s go-ahead, eighth-inning single Friday night.
