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. (Source: Jon Morosi on Twitter)

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.
