Detroit Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez came off the disabled list after the Tigers hosted the New York Yankees on Tuesday night.
Martinez has been out since April 18 because of a strained right groin.
To make room for Martinez, the club sent catcher Omir Santos to Triple-A Toledo.
Detroit defeated the Yankees 4-2 Tuesday night to end a seven-game losing streak.
Leyland said Martinez will hit fifth Wednesday. Brennan Boesch will hit third, taking the spot of struggling Magglio Ordonez in the batting order.
