Brandon Inge was originally supposed to be out four to six weeks because of his broken hand, but he is ahead of schedule and is actually going to begin a rehab stint tonight.
The Tigers announced just before the day game that Inge is heading out on a rehab assignment to Class A West Michigan, starting tonight. Sounds like he could be back before next week.
Inge has been working hard to rehab his broken hand and took batting practice yesterday and this morning. Right now it looks like he's on track to officially rejoin the team prior to next week's road trip to Chicago. It would be great if that turned out to be the case, as the Tigers' lineup needs all of the help it can get.
