Guillen aims to resume running this week

|
ST. PETERSBURG -- Carlos Guillen said he hopes to be able to resume running within the next four to five days and baseball activity soon thereafter, giving some hope that the second baseman's stay on the disabled list might not be a long one.

Guillen went on the DL after straining his right calf Saturday night against the Blue Jays. He took in batting practice Monday evening from the Tigers' dugout, unable to do anything but watch. Guillen said the calf has loosened up considerably.

A quick return for Guillen would help recoup a little bit of the offense Detroit lost when Magglio Ordonez fractured his ankle in the same game, costing him an estimated six to eight weeks.

For the time being, it looks like the Tigers are going to keep Scott Sizemore at third base. While Don Kelly started at third for Monday's series opener against the Rays at Tropicana Field, Will Rhymes earned his second start in as many days at second base. He again hit second in the order between leadoff man Austin Jackson and third hitter Johnny Damon.
