Armed with a devastating slider into which he leaned heavily, Boyd had an impressive opening to his season, putting up gaudy strikeout numbers with impressive overall stats. Unfortunately, his ERA rose from 3.87 in the first half to 5.51 in the second half, with his WHIP coming along for the ride. An awful .318 BABIP on groundballs didn't help, but that number isn't all that surprising given the defense behind him. With almost no win potential, Boyd is more of a back-end-of-the-rotation fantasy starter.

Matthew Boyd targeted by Angels

The Angels are reportedly interested in trading for Tigers SP Matthew Boyd. However, there is no indication of progress toward a deal at this time.

Fantasy Impact

It's hard to envision the Tigers trading Boyd unless they receive a haul given he should remain under affordable team control through his free agent season in 2023. Still, despite his breakout in 2019 he is 28, so if the Tigers want to cash in and expedite their rebuild they could look to deal Boyd to a contender. Boyd benefits from playing in the relatively harmless AL Central, but a move to a contending team would help his case for wins.
