The Detroit Tigers are just plain getting chewed up this season!
Carlos Guillen just left tonight's game with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays with a groin strain. Nate Robertson hurt his back pitching tonight as well. Brandon Inge broke his toe last night and Placido Polanco has an oblique strain, missing a few days this past weekend. All of this is following Kenny Rogers' shoulder surgery, Vance Wilson's elbow surgery, Joel Zumaya's ruptured tendon in his middle finger, and Fernando Rodney's shoulder issues. What's next??
I guess I should be grateful that they are only 1.5 games behind Cleveland, as beat up as they are. The Tigers have already had more games missed from injury this year than they had all of last year and we're only 52 games into the 162-game season.
