ARLINGTON -- The Tigers decided to scratch Rick Porcello for Wednesday's scheduled start because of lingering problems with his right index finger. Armando Galarraga will start in his place.
"He could probably go, but we're not going to chance it," manager Jim Leyland said.
Porcello injured a flexor tendon in the index finger of his pitching hand during his last start last Thursday against the White Sox.
Porcello will pitch on Monday against Kansas City at Comerica Park.
