Saturday: Magglio still out

Tigers head athletic trainer Kevin Rand reports more improvement for Magglio Ordonez, but still not enough to get him back in the lineup. He was out on the field for batting practice today, which was a good sign. With a day game Sunday and an off-day Monday, though, it would not be a surprise if manager Jim Leyland decided to give Ordonez the next couple days to be safe and bring him back Tuesday against Washington.

Ryan Raburn is back in left field and batting third today with the left-handed Paul Maholm on the mound.
