Ryan Raburn Hits Another Home Run During Rehab Assignment

Second-half Ryan Raburn may finally be showing up.

The Tigers' utility man has been sidelined with a right thumb sprain since Aug. 1 and recently began a rehab assignment in Toledo.

Raburn's numbers in two games with Toledo? 4-for-9 with two home runs, a double, two walks and six RBIs. On Thursday night, Raburn went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer.

He has been much-maligned this season in Detroit. Raburn got off to his typically cold start, but hasn't turned it around yet this season, hitting .172 with a .225 OBP before going on the DL. Last season, he hit .323 in August and .383 in September/October, continuing his reputation of being a second-half player.

With the Tigers battling out for a playoff spot, the hope is Raburn can finally find things and become the other solid right-handed bat they need down the stretch.
