Alright, I don’t know if this is a pre April Fools joke or what, but AM1270 is talking on the radio right now about Kenny Rogers hitting the DL. I haven’t been able to find anything else on this, but as soon as I can, I’ll let you know.
The Big Show on AM1270 is saying Kenny Rogers will hit the DL with a “fatigued arm,” whatever that is.
Alright, I got this out of the Tigers Press Pass and it confirms Kenny Rogers move to the 15 day DL and it’s retroactive to March 25. He’ll miss at least one start but there’s a ton of mystery surrounding this right now. The Tigers pulled Bobby Seay up from the minors to take Kenny Rogers place on the pitching staff to start the season.
And here’s Jason Beck’s take, which just came up. It looks like for now, Chad Durbin will be the fifth starter. I’d rather see Wil Ledezma, but then the Tigers wouldn’t have any lefties out of the pen. Talk about an interesting domino effect.
