Insight: With a spotty injury history and coming off surgery we don't expect Guillen to get more than 400 at-bats this year no matter when his season starts. He is a very poor mixed league option.
Description:'s Jason Beck reports, via Twitter, that Guillen (left knee) will have a "diagnostic surgical procedure" on his left knee and is officially out for the rest of the season.
Insight: Guillen will finish 2010 hitting .273 with six home runs and 34 RBI. He is due to make $13 million next season. (

Description: The Detroit Free Press reports there is still no timetable for Guillen's return from his left knee injury.
Insight: Guillen is eligible to return from the disabled list on September 2, but it doesn't seem like he'll return at that point. Surely there are healthier options available if you have Guillen on your fantasy team. (

Insight: Scott Sizemore will move back to 2B and the Tigers will mix and match at 3B unless they make a trade. We didn't think Guillen would survive as a regular 2B at this point in his career so this might not be his last injury of the season.

Description: Guillen went 3-for-4 with a double, three RBI and a run scored against the Orioles on Monday.
Insight: Guillen is hitting .294 with five home runs and 25 RBI this season. He is definitely a middle infield option if youn need help there, but do be aware of the potential injury risk. (
6/21/2010 2:03:00 PM
Description: Guillen went 2-for-3 with a home run against Arizona on Sunday.
Insight: Guillen is hitting .295 with five home runs and 21 RBI this season, and has produced well since returning from the DL and taking over at second base. He is a worthy middle infield option, but there's a decent amount of injury risk here. (
