PT is about to become a big issue for a lot of folks in DET.
a) Unfortunately, they have to bring Dimitri Young back up. And there are plans to do so. You'd think he'd sit on the bench but they sorely need a LH bat. Hey, there have been rumors that DET is looking at Ryan Klesko to fill that void. If that isn't the very definition of needy, I don't know what is. So Young -- or ugggh, Klesko -- will play. Someone will lose ABs -- Thames or Monore.
b) In addition to D. Young arrival, it's no secret DET is courting Soriano (or Abreu, but that even more of a longshot). I think everyone in DET expects a move for a superstar caliber guy. If that happens, yet ANOTHER person loses out in the batting order musical chairs.
Long way of saying that Young and an acqustion will cut into Monroe and Thames playing time as early as next week. Just how much is hard to tell. But it's hard to see any way around it.
