Full Playoff Coverage
Tigers left fielder Delmon Young suffered an oblique injury toward the end of the Tigers' Game 5 win in the ALDS against the Yankees. He apparently isn't close to being 100 percent, because Young has been left off the Tigers' roster for the ALCS against the Rangers. The roster cannot be changed again until after the series, so Young's out for all seven potential games.

This is a big blow to the Tigers. Young had been thriving in the three-hole with Miguel Cabrera behind him in the batting order. He hit .316/.381/.789 with three home runs in 21 ALDS plate appearances.

Utility infielder Danny Worth will take Young's place on the roster. Expect Ryan Raburn and Don Kelly to get the majority of the work in left field.

The Rangers also made a change to their roster, but it was minor. Relief pitcher Yoshinori Tateyama is in, while third-string catcher Matt Treanor is out.

BTW...  Don't sleep on Kelly & Raburn. 

I do think that losing Boesch was a huge blow, losing Delmon sucks also. But guys ike Inge, Kelly, and Raburn have been known to step up. One or more of them will. Tigers in 6.

Meeeeeeeoooowwwww!!!

Carma? Carma????   

Its Karma you friggen moronic idiots. Stay off these boards if you dont know how to spell. Your opinion is wasted space and time.

With that said, I do agree with the one moron. What did the Tigers do to deserve bad "carma"?  

Just stay off the boards!!!

I think we will be just fine without Delmon. I would have liked his right-handed bat in there against those Ranger lefties, but I think Raburn can do just as good as him. Raburn crushes lefties and he has been hot over the past month and a half. Plus he walks more than Delmon. Miggy slides into that 3 hole now too, me likey. 

GO TIGERS

 No Boesch, no Gullen, no Young.... This is a patched up lineup compared to Texas'. Detroit's pitching might be able to hold on, but their hands are full.
