Jun 19 Ordonez (hernia) has been progressing well and could be back in the Detroit lineup sometime next week, the Booth Newspapers report.
Recommendation: Ordonez said Saturday that he could start a rehab assignment in a couple of days. He believes he'll need only about a week in the minors to get ready, and general manager Dave Dombrowski agreed with that assessment. Should all this happen that means Ordonez could return during the next homestand, which begins June 28 against the Chicago White Sox. That would be well ahead of the original estimation of a return after the All-Star break.
