He may not be in the starting lineup tomorrow, but he was the starting SS before he was injured. I don't see any reason why he would not be the starting SS when he comes back. As for tomorrow, we will just have to wait and see. Of course, if he is still hurting a bit when he returns, it would be prudent to keep him out of the lineup a little bit longer.
