Detroit DH Dmitri Young, who has been on the DL since May 22 with a leg strain and personal issues, could be activated as soon as Friday when the Tigers host Oakland. Young's rehabilitation assignment in the minors could extend into next week, but Leyland said "it won't run it's full course." After the game, Leyland would not rule out Young's return Friday, but said a move had not yet been made to bring him back to the team.
Dmitri Young activated, Ramon Santiago sent down
DETROIT -- The Tigers have activated troubled first baseman Dmitri Young for Friday night's game against Oakland.
To make room on the roster for Young, the team sent infielder Ramon Santiago to AAA Toledo.
Young left the Tigers on May 21 and soon after entered a rehabilitation center. He later told The Detroit News he had trouble with alcohol.
The 32-year-old has been playing for the Tigers' minor-league teams the last few weeks.
I hope so, but I also didn't expect his troubles to be put behind him so fast, which is why I was a bit baffled by him suddenly ripping up AAA after struggling in AA not far removed from his legal problems.moochman wrote:DY was always a good hitter.

Regardless of how well DY is hitting (or isn't), he is still a major injury risk. Still gotta hope for the best now that he's going to be back with the big league club. I'm all for anything that will help the team.
