Tigers' Matthew Boyd: Scratched for personal reasons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd was scratched from his start Tuesday in Cleveland for personal reasons, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

Boyd will be away from the team for a few days for a family matter. It's not yet clear if he'll be skipped entirely or will simply see his start pushed back by a few days. The Tigers haven't announced their plans to cover for Boyd's absence, but they've temporarily gone to a six-man rotation with Tyler Alexander starting Monday, so they could simply slide the rest of their starters up a day to pitch on standard rest.

Tigers' Matthew Boyd: Saddled with 11th loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (8-11) took the loss after surrendering four runs (two earned) on three hits and four walks while striking out three over five innings in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Yankees.

Boyd gave up a two-run homer in the first inning, followed by another two-run blast in the third on the way to a 10-4 loss. He's now 2-2 over his last four starts, and he sits with a 4.54 ERA and 1.20 WHIP with a 228:47 K:BB over 176.1 innings this season.

Tigers' Matthew Boyd: Start pushed to Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd's scheduled start Wednesday against the Yankees has been postponed and will be made up in a doubleheader Thursday.

He will start Game 1 of the twin bill while Spencer Turnbull takes the ball for the nightcap, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

Tigers' Matthew Boyd: Wins second straight outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (8-10) picked up the win against the Royals on Thursday, allowing three runs on 10 hits across 6.1 innings. He struck out six and did not issue any walks.

Boyd was plenty hittable, but he limited the damage by walking no one for the seventh time this season. The lefty also won his second straight decision after going 0-4 in his nine previous starts dating back to July 4. Boyd will take a 4.57 ERA and his two-game winning streak into a start next Wednesday against the powerful Yankees.

Tigers' Matthew Boyd: Strikes out 11 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (7-10) struck out 11 but allowed five runs on six hits with one walk to earn a victory against the Twins on Saturday.

Boy, talk about a mixed bag. Boyd punched out 11 hitters, which is his most in nearly two months, but he also tied a season high by allowing four homers. Furthermore, he won. This is basically a microcosm of his 2019 season, as Boyd has yielded 36 home runs and struck out 219 batters with a 4.58 ERA and 1.18 WHIP in 165 innings this year. Boyd will pitch next at the Royals on Thursday.

Tigers' Matthew Boyd: Ineffective against Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (6-10) allowed seven runs on four hits and five walks across six innings to take the loss Sunday against the Twins. He struck out seven.

Boyd was able to limit the hits, but the five walks were a new season high, and he also gave up two home runs. The lefty was unable to build off his last start, when he allowed just one run across seven innings, and that's been the story lately for Boyd. Since the All-Star break, the 28-year-old has a 5.71 ERA, marking a stark contrast to the strong start he had to the season. Boyd will look for better results his next time out Saturday against these same Twins.

Tigers' Matthew Boyd: Will start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd has been reinstated from the paternity list and will start Sunday's game against Minnesota, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Boyd was initially on track to take the hill Friday night, but after he was placed on the paternity list Tuesday, the Tigers elected to reconfigure their pitching rotation. The southpaw owns a 4.24 ERA and 1.16 WHIP with a 201:37 K:BB over 153 innings this season for Detroit.

Tigers' Matthew Boyd: Lands on paternity list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd was placed on the paternity list Tuesday.

Boyd will be away from the team for the next few days while on the paternity list, though he should be back in time to make his scheduled start Friday in Minnesota. Tyler Alexander has been recalled from Triple-A Toledo in a corresponding move.

Tigers' Matthew Boyd: Hurls seven strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd gave up a run on two hits and two walks while striking out nine over seven innings Sunday against the Rays. He didn't factor into the decision.

Boyd allowed just one run in the first inning on a sacrifice fly to center, but he ended his outing with six scoreless frames. Unfortunately, his team didn't provide enough run support for Boyd to emerge with the victory. The 28-year-old managed to bounce back after a pair of disastrous starts, as he'd yielded 12 runs in his last two performances prior to Sunday's clash.

Tigers' Matthew Boyd: Allows four home runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (6-9) allowed seven runs (six earned) across 5.1 innings and took the loss Tuesday against the Mariners. He gave up seven hits and two walks, while striking out four.

Boyd was victimized four times by Seattle home runs, and the long ball has been a big problem for the lefty lately. He was tagged for three homers in his last start, in which he allowed five runs in just 2.2 innings. On the season, Boyd has now allowed 30 home runs in 146 innings, and his ERA climbed to 4.38 after the rough start Tuesday. He'll look to keep the ball in the park and get back on track in his next outing, which is scheduled for Sunday against the Rays.

Tigers' Matthew Boyd: Struggles in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd allowed five runs on six hits and three walks over 2.2 innings but did not factor into the decision in Thursday's 10-8 win over the Royals. He struck out just one.

It's been a tale of two seasons for Boyd, who had a 2.85 ERA across his first 12 starts of the year. Since then, Boyd has a 5.56 ERA across his subsequent 12 starts. The 188 strikeouts in 140.2 innings are nice, but the lefty has generally looked more like a solid starter rather than a true ace. He'll look for better results in his next scheduled start Aug. 15 against the Mariners.

Tigers' Matthew Boyd: Falls short of quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 5-4 extra-inning loss to the Rangers, giving up two runs on six hits and a walk over 5.2 innings while striking out nine.

The lefty celebrated staying in Detroit at the trade deadline with another sharp performance, missing out on his 13th quality start of the year by a single batter while fanning at least eight batters for the seventh straight start. Boyd will take a 3.91 ERA and 187:30 K:BB through 138 innings into his next outing Thursday, at home against the Royals.

Tigers' Matthew Boyd: Fans 10 in dominant outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd allowed one run on three hits and three walks across 6.1 innings Sunday in a no-decision against the Mariners. He struck out 10.

Boyd retired the first nine batters he faced and went scoreless into the seventh inning. He ran into trouble with one out, issuing a pair of walks before Kyle Seager's RBI double chased him from the game. Still, it was an excellent start for Boyd, who notched double-digit punchouts for the sixth time this season. His name has come up in trade rumors of late, but if he remains with the team past the deadline, his next start will likely come on the road against the Rangers.

Tigers' Matthew Boyd: Whiffs eight in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd gave up two runs on five hits and two walks over six innings during Tuesday's 15-inning loss to the Phillies. He struck out eight and did not factor in the decision.

Boyd served up a 434-foot, two-run homer to Roman Quinn during the second inning, but that's all the Phillies were able to muster off the southpaw. The 28-year-old had surrendered at least four runs in each of his prior six starts, so Tuesday's outing was a welcome sight. Boyd will carry a 4.07 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 168:26 K:BB into Sunday's start at Seattle.

Tigers' Matthew Boyd: Allows five runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (6-8) allowed five runs on six hits with no walks across six innings to take the loss Thursday against Cleveland. He struck out eight.

Boyd threw 68 percent of his pitches for strikes as he notched a healthy strikeout total, but a pair of two-run home runs accounted for a significant chunk of the damage done against him. He otherwise pitched quite well, limiting baserunners to good effect. Boyd has struggled of late, allowing at least four earned runs in each of his last six starts while going deeper than six innings just twice in that span. He'll look to get back on track next week at home against the Phillies.

Tigers' Matthew Boyd: Fans 10 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (6-7) struck out 10 but was dealt the loss at Kansas City on Saturday, allowing four runs on six hits and four walks across seven innings.

Boyd cruised through the first four frames but scuffled during the fifth and sixth innings, giving up four runs on four hits and four walks. It's the third straight start the 28-year-old has reached double-digit strikeouts, and he next lines up to pitch Thursday at Cleveland.

Tigers' Matthew Boyd: Strikes out 13 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (6-6) picked up the win Thursday against the White Sox despite allowing four runs on nine hits in 5.1 innings of work. He struck out 13 and did not walk a batter.

Boyd allowed a two-run homer to Jose Rondon in the fourth and another to Eloy Jimenez in the sixth, raising his ERA to a still respectable 3.87. The 13 strikeouts, however, tied a season high. Boyd's strikeout rate now sits at 32.0 percent, an incredible jump from his previous career high of 22.4 percent.

July 2, 2019 09:36 PM
Tigers' Matthew Boyd: Tuesday's game postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd won't make his scheduled start Tuesday versus the White Sox since the game was postponed due to inclement weather.

Boyd will end up receiving a couple extra days of rest and will take the mound Thursday in Chicago. The 28-year-old was previously scheduled to start Sunday as well, but the postponement will cost him the chance for a two-start week.

June 27, 2019 10:28 PM
Tigers' Matthew Boyd: Sunk by homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd (5-6) allowed four earned runs on five hits and a walk while striking out 11 across seven innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Rangers.

Boyd got off to very strong start, striking out five of the first six batters he faced. While his strikeout pace slowed, Boyd managed an impressive 20 swinging strikes on 96 total pitches. However, he was undone by allowing three home runs -- all solo shots -- and has now surrendered at least one homer in five consecutive outings. Boyd's ERA sits at a season-worst mark of 3.72, which he'll try to correct in his next start, currently scheduled for Tuesday at the White Sox.

Tigers' Matthew Boyd: Allows five runs in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Boyd allowed five runs over six innings and did not factor into the decision in Friday's loss to Cleveland. He gave up seven hits and two walks, while striking out six.

Boyd allowed a two-run home run to Carlos Santana in the first inning, but then held Cleveland off the board in the next three innings. However, he ran into trouble in the fifth and sixth, allowing two more home runs and a total of three runs in the two frames. Boyd has now allowed 10 runs (nine earned) over his last two outings, and his ERA has crept up to 3.61, though the lefty still has a stellar 118:19 K:BB through 94.2 innings. He'll look to get back on track in his next scheduled start Wednesday against the Rangers.
