Magglio OrdonezJoe Mauer may not be the only star returning tot he field this week -- Ryan Zimmerman, Magglio Ordonez and possibly Matt Holliday could all return this week, as well.

Zimmerman went 0 for 5 for Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday, but is expected to join the Nationals on Tuesday for their series against the Cardinals, Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post reports. Zimmerman hasn't played since April 9 and underwent abdominal surgery on May 3.

Zimmerman played six minor league games in his rehab, going 8 for 21 (.381) with three doubles and a triple, walking twice.

Ordonez is expected to return to the Tigers on Monday. He's hit .297 (11 for 37) with two homers in nine rehab games at Triple-A Toledo. Ordonez had ankle surgery in August and went on the DL in May because of the ankle.

Matt Holliday"He feels he's ready to come up here and contribute," Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski told Chris Iott of MLive.com.

Holliday may not go on a rehab assignment, telling Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he hopes to play Thursday at the Nationals, the day he's eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list after suffering a leg injury.

Holliday joined the team on Saturday in Milwaukee and took batting practice and went through a workout.

Several stars expected to return this week

Hanley isn't coming back this week, he wasn't forgotten.

skreffty - either a) every sports reporting agency is incorrect, b) there is no Tuesday this week, or c) you don't have a clue what you are talking about.

I'm guessing it's option c.  Here are some helpful quotes for you:


"Ramirez will work out with the Marlins for the next two days in anticipation of a Tuesday activation."  ESPN 6/11/2011

"My back is better now and I'm going to be able to compete out there." Manager Edwin Rodriguez said Sunday that Ramirez has "a big chance" to move to the leadoff spot once he returns from the DL Tuesday against the Phillies.  CBS Sports 6/12/2011

How do you forget Hanley and Pablo? You also need to mention Alfonso Soriano if you consider Magglio a star.

Others here have already pointed out the glaring omission of Pablo Sandoval, who is scheduled to return for Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks.  Each of these in the article (Zimmerman, Ordonez, and Holliday) are important for their teams.  But with the Giants suffering injuries to so many key players (and in such desperate need for more offense), the Panda's return may even be the most noteworthy of them all.
