Game 16 afterglow and a Guillen update

New, 44 comments

A win is a win, even if it happens at 1:40 a.m. in the morning. So have at it!

Moving on, there's breaking news in regard to Carlos Guillen.

The glass bodied Guillen, who left the game after straining a hamstring while rounding 3rd base to end the 5th inning, was placed on the 15 day DL immediately after the game.

Via the ever prolific Jason Beck on Twitter:

Just announced: #Tigers will place Guillen on DL tomorrow. Brennan Boesch to be recalled from Toledo.

Beck then followed up:

Boesch is expected to join the #Tigers on Friday.

For those of you who had picked game 16 as to when Guillen would go on the DL, you win the pool.

Why Boesch you ask? A quick check of Baseball-Reference.com tells me his OPS is a hale and hearty 1.019. Boesch has a hot bat, and the Tigers are hoping it carries over for a couple of weeks in the bigs.

Discuss.
