Chad Griffin Durbin (born December 3, 1977 in Spring Valley, Illinois) is a Major League Baseball pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies. He has also played with the Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Royals, and Cleveland Indians of the American League and the Arizona Diamondbacks 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 an integral 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-man and setup.
