Matthew Boyd went seven innings while allowing four runs and striking out 10 in a loss to the Royals on Saturday.
Boyd allowed six hits and four walks to go along with the 10 punchouts. The southpaw breezed through the first four innings, but allowed a four-spot in the fifth before throwing two more scoreless frames. This could have been the final start of his Tigers' career -- or at least the last one in a Detroit uniform in 2019 -- as there are several teams clamoring for the left-hander's services. He now owns a 3.95 ERA on the season over his 19 starts, and he's struck out an impressive 152 hitters over 114 innings against 24 walks. Assuming heâ€™s not traded, Boyd will face the Indians on Thursday.(více...)
Jon Morosi of MLB.com reports that the Padres are "evaluating Tigers left-hander Matthew Boyd as a trade possibility."
Morosi notes that "serious talks have yet to occur" between the two clubs, but the Padres want to add a starting pitcher before the July 31 trade deadline and Boyd seems certain to be dealt away from Detroit. San Diego is also known to have interest in Noah Syndergaard of the Mets. Boyd, 28, has registered a 3.87 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 142/20 K/BB ratio over 107 innings (18 starts) this season and is under control through 2022.(více...)
Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Red Sox are "pushing to add a starting pitcher" and "would prefer to act sooner rather than later."
Rosenthal adds that the Red Sox are "casting a wide net" in their search for rotation help. He's reported previously that they scouted one of Matthew Boyd's recent starts, and the other starter in that game was Mike Minor, who is also a potential trade chip. Rosenthal's colleague, Jen McCaffrey, has listed Zack Wheeler, Tanner Roark and Jon Gray as potential targets for Boston. The fact that the Red Sox seem so interested in adding a starter further suggests that they'll bring Nathan Eovaldi back as a reliever, as has been reported.(více...)
Chris McCosky of the Detroit News reports that the Astros are one of the teams that have been scouting Matthew Boyd "hard."
McCosky's former colleague, Lynn Henning, hears that the Tigers are "asking far more than the Astros want to pay" for Boyd to this point. Although he's struggled a bit since the beginning of June, Boyd has had a breakout season with a 3.87 ERA and 142/20 K/BB ratio over 107 innings covering 18 starts. The left-hander is under team control through 2022, so while the Tigers look to be a ways off from contending, they don't necessarily have to trade Boyd at this point.(více...)
Despite striking out 13 batters, Matthew Boyd gave up four runs in 5 1/3 innings Thursday in a loss to the White Sox.
Boyd allowed two more homers today, bringing his total to 12 surrendered in his last six starts. He gave up a total of seven homers through the end of May. He should bounce back some, but it's not like he ever figured to maintain a sub-3.00 ERA for the duration.(více...)
