Undated--The Tigers didn't lack for outfield help in their game 3 win of the ALCS Tuesday night, but perhaps some recent injuries could mean a postseason callup for Mosley alum Clete Thomas. Clete's not swung a bat in the big leagues in a couple of years, but there is a possibility now Thomas could be called up to try and help the Tigers in the playoffs.
The Tigers may need the help since Magglio Ordonez's injury forced Delmon Young back on the roster, Young himself nursing an injury, and he sat out tonight's game. Clete, who hit 251 in Triple-A Toledo this season, has been sent to Tigers instructional ball just in case injuries force Jim Leyland to call him up.
Clete last played for the parent club back in oh-9, knee surgery kept him out much of the 2010 season.
