Roberto Alejandro Durán was a former MLB pitcher who played for the Detroit Tigers. He pitched two seasons with the Tigers in 1997 and 1998. He batted and threw left-handed.

Durán was signed by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1990 as an amateur free agent. On March 14, 1996, Durán was selected off waivers by the Toronto Blue Jays. He never made it to the bigs with the Jays and ended up being traded on December 11, 1996 to the Detroit Tigers for career minor leaguer Anton French. There in Detroit Durán made his first big league appearance on 7/6/97. He finished the year having appeared in 13 games, and holding a 7.59 ERA through 10 23 innings pitched.

In 1998, at the age of 25, Durán appeared in 18 games for the Tigers. He lost one game and had a 5.87 ERA through 15 and a third innings. After that season, on January 1, 1999 the Montreal Expos claimed him off of waivers. He never would play again in the big leagues. He ended his career with an 0–1 record, a 6.58 ERA, and 23 strikeouts.
