Guillen looking at Saturday rehab start
It appears the rain in Detroit might have washed out the chances of seeing Carlos Guillen start his rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo while the Mud Hens are at home. With the tarp on the field at Comerica Park this morning, Guillen was not able to run the bases, so he’ll have to pick up that part of his rehab again Wednesday morning at Triple-A Toledo.
Guillen said today he’ll probably run the bases Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at Toledo. He could then start his rehab assignment Saturday, when the Mud Hens begin their road trip at Syracuse. That would put him on track to face Nationals uberprospect Stephen Strasburg, who will probably face the Mud Hens on Sunday.
How long will Guillen need to rehab, then? Still no idea. The Tigers begin their next homestand next Friday, but Guillen will have had five rehab games tops by then, since the Hens have an off-day next Wednesday in the middle of their trip. And the last thing Guillen wants to do right now is rush his rehab and tweak his hamstring again.
