Friday: Tigers vs. O's

Todd Jones is back, but don’t look for him in the ninth inning, at least not tonight. If he pitches tonight, it’ll likely be in a lower-pressure situation.

Marcus Thames is also back. He’ll be hitting sixth behind the Ordonez-Cabrera-Sheff trio in teh middle of the order.

As for Carlos Guillen, he’s out for at least one more day. Even if he says he feels fine, manager Jim Leyland said, he’ll probably still rest him for another day to be on the safe side with a pinched nerve.
