Guillen Recalled

EDIT: Since there have been no further reports on the supposed move, I'm thinking that the "recall" might actually mean he was pulled from his rehab due to injury. I'm sure we'll learn more either way later today.

In a surprising move, the Tigers have recalled Carlos Guillen from his rehab in Lakeland this morning (per MLB Press Pass). I had expected him to continue his rehab in Toledo for at least another few days. They seem to be rushing him but I suspect they want to watch him now so they can assess their trade needs as the deadline approaches. Guillen went 3 for 12 with 4 walks in 5 games with Lakeland.

There is no word yet on who will be removed from the roster to make room for Guillen. I doubt it will be Magglio Ordonez. I think if they were going to release him, they would have done so already. I would guess that they will either waive Josh Anderson or option Ryan Raburn. At any rate, I hope this move means the end of regular playing time for Anderson.
