TIGERS UPDATE

Durbin, a 29-year-old right-hander who was inserted into the rotation after veteran Kenny Rogers was placed on the disabled list, saw his start pushed back to today because of Thursday's postponed game against the Toronto Blue Jays. The reigning American League champions are 3-2 after yesterday's victory over the Royals in Kansas City, the second leg of a 10-game trip. Designated hitter Gary Sheffield, acquired in the offseason in a trade with the New York Yankees, hit his first home run with his new team Saturday. He is hitting .176 with four RBIs. Leadoff hitter and center fielder Curtis Granderson is off to a quick start, with a .300 average, two home runs and seven RBIs. Verlander, the AL Rookie of the Year last season, gave up no earned runs and two hits against the Royals. The Orioles and Tigers split six games last year, and the Orioles are 59-36 against Detroit during the past 11 seasons.
