Officially "Not Good": Marcus Thames On the DL

After last night's game, Jim Leyland said Marcus Thames' hamstring injury was "not good." And that was confirmed this morning as the Tigers placed Thames on the 15-day disabled list. (Thanks to the guys at Motown Sports for being all over this today and listening closely to the radio.) No word yet on whether Thames suffered a pull or tear in that left hamstring.

Outfielder Timo Perez was called up from Triple-A Toledo and, according to Jason Beck, will be starting in left field this afternoon. Does that mean Craig Monroe's back spasms will knock him out for a few games, too?

Perez has been playing great in Toledo, batting .322/.364/.491 with 10 home runs, 48 RBI, and seven stolen bases. (He's been caught stealing six times, however.)
