Guillen back at DH

Manager Jim Leyland said he hopes to get Carlos Guillen back in left field for Friday’s series opener against Cleveland, but it sounds very much like a wait-and-see scenario in which they’re hoping his Achilles feels a little better this weekend. He was noticeably hobbled simply running the bases Tuesday. The sooner he can get back in the field, the better as far as Guillen goes, because he’ll get more into the flow of the game. But it won’t be easy.
