Tigers OF once Guillen returns?

Postby Ballpark Frank » Wed Jul 15, 2009 10:48 am

Anyone follow the Tigers enough to have an educated guess on how their OF/DH situation will play out during the 2nd half? Seems like Guillen's a week or so away from adding to the logjam. Do they cut Maggs to avoid his big payday once Guillen returns and continue to let the kids play or how will Leyland line these guys up the rest of the way? Just curious...

My guess is he comes in and splits time with Raburn, hoping to keep him healthy for the remainder of the year. Or they have Carlos DH and move Marcus to LF and slip Raburn in when someone needs a day off. Unfortunately I don't get to see the Tigers much as I live in WI, but I try to follow them best I can.

i havent heard anything yet, but i would expect him to split time between LF/DH

so you'll have
RF = Mags/Clete Thomas platoon based on L/R matchups (until they cut Mags)
LF = Guillen, Thames, Raburn and Anderson splitting time there (although Anderson could be the one to get sent down when Guillen is activated...if Mags isnt cut)
DH = Guillen or Thames
