Left-hander Matt Boyd will make his first start with the Tigers just six days after joining the club as part of the non-waiver Trade Deadline deal that sent ace David Price to the Blue Jays.
Boyd (0-2, 14.85 ERA), the Tigers' No. 8 prospect, according to MLB.com, will take the hill on Wednesday night in the middle game against the Royals at Comerica Park. Though the southpaw struggled in two outings with the Blue Jays earlier this season, he went 9-2 with a 1.65 ERA in 19 Minor League starts.
