Detroit Tigers activate Delmon Young, de-activate Magglio Ordonez

New, 51 comments

The Detroit Tigers did not include Delmon Young on the active roster for the ALCS, due to an oblique strain he suffered in the ALDS.

Well, Young is back now.

Young has been added to the Tigers' 25 man ALCS roster, replacing Magglio Ordonezwho suffered a broken ankle on batting practice on Saturday.

Young isn't likely to be available until later in the series, but with the Tigers already lacking in outfield depth, they apparently decided that he was preferable to any other option they had available.
