Bad news (with terrible timing) for the Tigers.
Ordonez was 5-for-11 with a double and a run scored during the Tigers’ ALDS defeat of the Yankees. He went 0-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout in Saturday night’s ALCS Game 1 loss to the Rangers.
Look for Don Kelly and Ryan Raburn to fill in for Detroit. Both have seen semi-regular action all postseason. Kelly had four hits, including a home run, during the ALDS. Raburn is 3-for-8 in these playoffs.
UPDATE, 6:52pm: Ordonez told MLB.com that his ankle is broken. He’s done for the year.
