The Dodgers, Braves, Astros, Rays and Padres are all reportedly interested in Boyd.

MLB trade rumors: Tigers' Matthew Boyd monitored by at least 5 teams


The Tigers will have multiple options if they decide to move Matthew Boyd.

The Dodgers, Braves, Astros and Rays are all monitoring the market for the 28-year-old starter, according to a report from the Detroit News. The Padres are also “evaluating Boyd as a trade possibility,” according to MLB.com.

The Tigers “prefer to acquire at least one potential All-Star position player if they move Boyd," according to MLB.com.

“It’s just noise, right?” Boyd said about the trade rumors last month, via MLB.com. “There’s no action that needs to be taken or anything. It’s just stuff that’s out of my control, and really no stock needs to go into it until something happens. So, there’s nothing I can do.”

Boyd is in the middle of a career season and holds a 6-6 record with a 3.87 ERA in 18 starts so far. He has struck out 142 and walked 20 in 107 innings pitched.

Detroit also is willing to listen to offers for Nicholas Castellanos and Shane Greene, along with “virtually any veteran on its roster,” according to MLB Network.

“The guys that should be worried are the guys that no one is interested in,” Detroit manager Ron Gardenhire said in June. “So, when people care, and your name is being thrown around, it ought to flatter you. That’s what I throw out there. Just be happy that someone wants you in this game.”

The Tigers are well out of playoff contention with a 28-57 record.
