Magglio Ordonez's season is over: surgery scheduled

The Tigers announced -- as has been tweeted by's Jason Beck and the Detroit News' Tom Gage -- that Magglio Ordonez's season is over.

He will have surgery to stabilize his ankle on Wednesday.

Obviously at this point the $15m team option next year won't vest, and there is no buyout cost to the team. If Ordonez has played his last game as a Tiger, he'll remain one of the most famous and popular Tigers for years to come.

Just in case ... a little something to remember him by.
