Ordonez Out 6-8 Weeks, Option Will Not Vest

Tigers slugger Magglio Ordonez will be out for 6-8 weeks with a broken right ankle, according to Ed Price of AOL Fanhouse (via Twitter).  The injury could prove to be costly for Ordonez as he needs 540 plate appearances or 135 starts in order for his 2011 option to vest.

Currently, the 36-year-old has 363 plate appearances and has started just 71 games.  Based on the current prognosis, Ordonez could only hope to return to action in the first week of September.

Had his 2011 option with Detroit vested, Ordonez would have earned $15MM.  This season, Ordonez has a slash line of .301/.375/.472 with 12 homers.
