Rogers not coming to instruct

That Kenny Rogers stint in Tigers spring training as a guest instructor isn’t going to happen, at least not this week. Rogers had to cancel his scheduled trip to Lakeland due to a family matter, manager Jim Leyland said Wednesday. He was supposed to be in camp March 2-5.

When the Tigers confirmed earlier in camp that Rogers was coming, Leyland said there was a chance he might make another visit later in the month. Not sure if that might still happen.
