Carlos Guillen and Magglio Ordonez have been placed on the disabled list and infielders Jeff Larish and Will Rhymes have been added to the 25 man roster. Guillen left today's game with a strained calf and Ordonez left with a broken ankle. The injuries to Guillen, Ordonez and Brandon Inge have left the Tigers with a very young inexperienced roster. Nine of their 13 position players spent time in the minors either last year or this year. Only Miguel Cabrera, Johnny Damon, Gerald Laird and Ramon Santiago have been in the majors for all of 2009-2010.
Rhymes is a 5-9 155 pound second baseman, who has been described as the David Eckstein of the minors. The left-handed batter hit .304/.367/.414 for Toledo this season. He also had a 33/31 BB/K ratio in 336 at bats and 20 steals. Jeff Larish is a slugging corner infielder who was batting .275/.373/.497 for the MudHens. He was hitting .304 with 10 homers in June-July.
