2023 Player Outlook
The Tigers signed Matthew Boyd to a one-year, $10 million contract with the Tigers during the off-season and he is slated to be the team's No. 2 starter. The left-hander was once a very valuable arm in the Detroit organization for seven years before leaving for San Francisco last year. The Giants ended up trading him to the Seattle Mariners in August and he did a fine job working out of the bullpen for the playoff-bound team and accumulated 13.1 innings pitched, allowing just two runs, and striking out 13. If Boyd can get back to the level of production that he showed in his first stint with the Tigers, he should be able to bring value and experience to the team’s rotation.
