DETROIT — Matt Boyd could be traded this season. The Tigers could decide to hold on to their starter, and wait until the offseason or next summer to move him.
Or they could trade him in 2021.
Al Avila has Boyd under team control for three more seasons, so he's setting the price high on the starter ahead of the trade deadline. Boyd addressed the rumors and reports this week.
