Here's the best link I've got at the time:

He'll almost definitely be back in a few days after the trade deadline passes, but until the Tigers trade Dmitri Young or RonDL White, the at bats could have been harder to come by for Granderson.
Dmitri will actually play some LF, unless White can get back in the field.


Hope you're right that he'll be back in a few days as I'm holding him in my deep keeper points league mostly because we use dedicated LF/CF/RF -- and a good CF bat is hard to come by as we use XR formula for offense, which doesn't overvalue SBs like typical roto leagues do. As it is, I'm also still holding Olsen and giving Encarnacion a try at 3B (since Mora's struggling).

I can't believe they sent Granderson down. No wonder the Tigers suck.

Their only other option was to send out Logan, as I believe he's the only other OF with options available.

It seems pretty reasonable to assume they will move someone shortly (White?) and Granderson will then return...and will probably get most of the CF starts.

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.

Can we now say "no wonder the Tigers suck?" :-[

I patiently waited for the recall, but it's now a week since the trade deadline and still no sign of Granderson. :-t

hmmm let's see how long he stays up. He's hit a lot of XBH this season so I'm curious as to how that translates in DET.

He's up for good this time. Unfortunately for his owners, I expect him to be in the #9 hole with Polanco now set in the leadoff spot. But Granderson should get most of the starts ahead of the punchless Logan, unless he falls on his face.

Yeah, he's pretty much guaranteed to be up for good. I don't think being in the #9 spot will be too bad for him, as he won't have too much pressure. Even if Rondell comes back this season (doubtful) it will already be into September with the expanded rosters. Rondell is a good clubhouse guy so he'll still be a contributer while he is unable to play just by being around.
