Tigers Ordonez Out Of Postseason With Bad Ankle
ARLINGTON (AP) Magglio Ordonez will miss the rest of the postseason because of an ankle injury, the second Detroit Tigers outfielder out of the AL championship series.
Manager Jim Leyland says Ordonez is having problems with the right ankle that he broke last season, an injury that caused him to miss more than a month this summer. Leyland said Sunday that Ordonez will be replaced on the ALCS roster.
Ordonez came out of Saturday’s opener after the second of two rain delays in the top of the fifth inning. Ordonez drew a walk during a short resumption of play between the delays and was replaced by a pinch-runner when the game resumed for good.
Delmon Young was taken off the roster Saturday because of an oblique injury.
Game 2 was postponed to Monday because of rain.
