Guillen rehab transferred to Toledo
The Tigers officially announced Al Alburquerque’s DL assignment Friday afternoon, also with Lester Oliveros’ promotion from Triple-A Toledo, while also announcing the next step in Carlos Guillen’s rehab assignment. After four games at Class A Lakeland, Guillen is headed to Triple-A Toledo for what should be the final step in his road back.
Guillen batted 3-for-15 with two doubles and two RBIs with the Flying Tigers, splitting his time between second base and DH. Now that he’s back up to speed defensively, he’s expected to get the bulk of his time at second.
How much time Guillen will spend at Toledo is another question. His agent suggested to FOXSports.com that he could be ready coming out of the All-Star break. Considering both the Majors and Triple-A have their break at the same time, it would make sense.
