Tigers outfielder Magglio Ordonez is on the disabled list as he recovers from weakness in his right ankle, the same area in which he suffered a fracture and had to have season-ending surgery in 2010. He's been out on a rehab assignment and will soon return to the Tigers.

“The target for him, I think, is Monday, but I can’t swear to that," manager Jim Leyland said (Detroit Free Press).

Ordonez, 37, was once one of the more feared hitters in baseball. The six-time All-Star owns one batting title and a career .876 OPS. He was effective last season before the injury, hitting .303 with 12 homers and 59 RBI in 84 games. He struggled mightily earlier this season, but if his ankle still wasn't fully healed it's a valid excuse.

When Ordonez returns, expect him to play almost every day, with Andy Dirks being the odd-man out and clearing the way for an Ordonez, Austin Jackson and Brennan Boesch outfield.

When he does return, I hope the manager has good sense to keep Boesch in the three hole.
