The Tigers were facing left-handed pitchers in 3 out of the next 5 games (including last night vs Moyer). Granderson(a young left-handed batter) would have likely not played in those games anyways. Also, they are getting Dmitri Young and Rondell White at-bats to keep their trade value up. They want Granderson to play everday which wasn't going to happen over the next several days, so they sent him down. Makes good sense to me, a Tigers fan. However, if Granderson isn't called back up the day after the trade deadline whether or not we successfully trade Dmitri or Rondell, then it's definitely time to question what they are thinking.
