Matthew Boyd has emerged as the Tigers’ staff ace

In a Detroit Tigers season laden with injuries to the starting pitching staff, it’s clear that the pieces that are still healthy are going to have to step up.

So far, with the exception of somewhat rough starts in each of their last outings, both Spencer Turnbull and Matthew Boyd have done just this, carrying their weight and more as the likes of Michael Fulmer, Jordan Zimmermann, Matt Moore, and Tyson Ross sit on the injured list, watching from the sidelines.

He’s always had potential

Boyd showed flashes of his capabilities, with a near no-hitter against the Chicago White Sox in 2017 and a largely strong 2018 season.
