Rogers to start Wednesday, Durbin Thursday

Jim Leyland made it official with Sunday morning after talking over the rotation with pitching coach Chuck Hernandez and checking with Kenny Rogers. He doesn’t like shuffling guys back and forth from starting to relief, but he’s going to do it for now.

A lot of changes to the lineup for resting players, but Leyland said he really likes it. He has a good infield defense behind Nate Robertson, and some home-run power where the ball carries in day games.
