ARLINGTON, Texas -- To replace the injured Magglio Ordonez, the Tigers chose an outfielder who hit three home runs in five Division Series games against the Yankees.

Delmon Young is back on the roster. And back in the lineup, batting third, for Monday afternoon's rescheduled Game 2.

Young was removed from the Tigers' roster before the American League Championship Series against the Rangers, after he strained an oblique muscle in Game 5 in New York. Young healed quicker than expected, and Ordonez suffered a broken right ankle that ended his season and quite possibly his career.

The Tigers had no other good options to replace Ordonez, and they added Young back to the roster even before they were certain he could play Monday. Manager Jim Leyland said that Young went through early drills Monday morning and was cleared to play.

Young's return could be a big boost for the Tigers, who had been faced with the lost of two right-handed hitting outfielders, both of whom bat in the middle of the order.

With Young back, Leyland returned to his normal lineup, with Young batting in front of Miguel Cabrera and Victor Martinez. Ryan Raburn, who played left field in Young's absence in Game 1, subs for Ordonez in right field in Game 2 and bats sixth.

Especially with Ordonez out, the Tigers badly need Young's right-handed bat. They face Rangers left-hander Derek Holland in Monday's rescheduled Game 2. The Rangers have a right-hander, Colby Lewis, pitching Game 3 on Tuesday in Detroit, but left-handers (Matt Harrison and C.J. Wilson) set for Games 4 and 5 on Wednesday and Thursday.
