Carlos Guillen Placed On 15-Day DL; Will Rhymes Called Up

Although Carlos Guillen's left knee injury didn't appear to be too serious, he is headed back to the disabled list, according to the Tigers' official Twitter account.

Guillen placed on 15-day DL with deep contusion in left knee retroactive to 8/17. Rhymes recalled from Triple A Toledo.

I suppose this news shouldn't be too surprising, because any time Guillen and injury are mentioned in the same sentence, it's usually something beyond a day-to-day thing.

At this point, though, with the Tigers out of the division race completely, it's probably a good thing to give some of the inexperienced players a chance to play in the big leagues. Rhymes played pretty well toward the end of his recent stint with the Tigers, so it will be interesting to see if he can pick up where he left off.
