The Gambler Down On His Luck

The Gambler. What a Dick.
Detroit Tigers lefty Kenny Rogers will miss at least one regular-season start after being placed on the 15-day disabled list. Because his arm is tired.

Rogers has been seeing a specialist, but club officials would not speculate on how long he will be out. Dave Drombrowski, Tigers president and CEO, did say that Rogers will miss at least one start, however.

Right-hander Chad Durbin will take Rogers' spot in the rotation, and lefty Bobby Seay will take his roster spot.

The 42-year-old Rogers finished 17-8 with a 3.84 ERA in 34 outings during his first season with the Tigers in 2006. He won all three of his starts during the playoffs and didn't allow a run over 23 innings. He is a career 207-139 with a 4.19 ERA.
