From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia...
Chad Griffin Durbin (born December 3, 1977 in Spring Valley, Illinois) is a Major League Baseball relief pitcher. He has also played with the Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Royals and Cleveland Indians of the American League and the Arizona Diamondbacks and Philadelphia Phillies of the National League. He attended Woodlawn High School in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Durbin signed with the Tigers as a minor league free agent prior to the 2006 baseball season. He was a part of the 2006 International League champion Toledo Mud Hens, while also making 3 late-season appearances with the Tigers.
During 2007 spring training, Durbin was in the mix for one of the final spots in the Tigers bullpen. However, starting pitcher Kenny Rogers soon went on the disabled list with a shoulder injury, and the Tigers turned to Durbin to fill his spot in the rotation. Durbin served as a starting pitcher for several stints, before ultimately joining the bullpen. Pitching in relief, Durbin served several roles, including long relief and setup.
During a game on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball against the Atlanta Braves, Durbin had a sacrifice fly for his first career RBI. He also recorded his first major league save in the same game. On December 12, 2007, Durbin was not offered a new contract by the Tigers and he became a free agent. On December 20, 2007, he signed with the Philadelphia Phillies. After the 2010 season, Chad Durbin's contract with the Phillies was up. On March 1, 2011, he signed with the Cleveland Indians which will be his second stint with them.
Durbin lives with his wife Crystal and son Cade in Baton Rouge, Louisiana during the off-season. Durbin is not related to Dick Durbin, the senator from Illinois, or former MLB pitcher J.D. Durbin.
