Achilles again sidelines Ordonez

Tigers outfielder Magglio Ordonez left Monday's game against the Rangers with tightness in his Achilles. He had been battling soreness in his right ankle in the early going this season, after having surgery on the ankle this past offseason. He missed Sunday's game and was pulled following the seventh inning Monday. He will reportedly miss "at least the next few days" moving forward. ( )

Ordonez, 37, hasn't done much to help the 3-7 Tigers here in the early going of 2011. His on-base and slugging percentages are both below .300 and he still isn't moving well in right field. Meanwhile, Brennan Boesch and Ryan Raburn have swung the bat relatively well thus far -- not to mention both are much younger than Ordonez. It's hard to see how him missing a few days really hurts the team.
