The Tigers activated Carlos Guillen from the disabled list Friday, hoping the former All-Star shortstop-turned-left fielder can provide a spark as the designated hitter.Guillen will be in the lineup for both ends of Friday’s day-night doubleheader against the White Sox at DH, marking his first game action for the Tigers since May 4. He spent the past 2 1/2 months on the disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.
Carlos Guillen had spent much of the past year on the mend.
He always seemed to have an electric stimulator hooked up to his back or shoulder and ice bags on various joints. He walked slowly around the clubhouse and began avoiding the brief interviews about his injuries that had become monotonous.
But Guillen returned to the Detroit Tigers this week as an injury-free left fielder with a bounce in his step and a smile on his face.
While Carlos Guillen’s sore right Achilles tendon kept him hobbled in the field, he quietly was struggling to hit with a sore right shoulder. The Tigers decided Tuesday was the time to try to take care of both, placing their quiet run-producer on the 15-day disabled list.
