Delmon Young has been added to Detroit's roster for the rest of the AL championship series to replace another injured starting outfielder, Magglio Ordonez. Young was initially left off the ALCS roster because of a strained left oblique he aggravated in the AL division series clincher at New York. The Tigers weren't certain when he would be able to play again. The Tigers added Young to the roster before Game 2 on Monday. Ordonez is done for the season because he re-fractured his right ankle that was surgically repaired in July 2010. After drawing a walk before the second rain delay in Game 1 on Saturday night, Ordonez was lifted for a pinch-runner after the game resumed.
