I planned on brewing today, but life happened. When I got home, I remembered that I took my liquid yeast out this morning to warm up. I put it back in the refrigerator, but was wondering if this is detrimental to the yeast as it has been out for about 13 hours? Thanks for any help on this.

I had the same issue...I put mine back in the fridge and used it 2 weeks later without a starter and it went crazy in about 8 hours. Id say if it didn't get too hot it will be fine.

I've done this several times without any problems. If you're really concerned, find a gallon jar or some container and make a quick starter.

it'll be fine. you should be making a starter for it anyway so make a starter a day before you brew. All is good.
