BREAKING: Detroit Tigers’ pitcher to miss remainder of Season

Published

on

Matt Moore’s surgery was a success, but he will miss the season.

Moore was off to a promising (if short) start with the Tigers. He threw nine and two-thirds scoreless innings before hurting his knee fielding a come-backer against the Kansas City Royals on April 6th. Moore finished the inning allowing no runs but couldn’t come back.

Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire confirmed the prognosis:

This is not the first injury in Moore’s (30) career. After an exciting early career with the Tampa Bay Rays, Moore had Tommy John surgery in 2015. He had previously injured the same knee as well.

Moore signed a one-year $2.5 million deal with the Tigers during the offseason. Now he will spend the rest of that year on the IL.

In terms of WAR, the Detroit Tigers have the best pitcher in baseball

Published

on

Despite a decent start, the chances of the Detroit Tigers contending for anything in 2019 is pretty slim as their current roster just does not match up to the talent around the league.

Rather than basing success off of wins and losses, it is important to look at the individual growth of some of the individual players on the team.

One of those players is starting pitcher, Matthew Boyd.

Boyd, who is 28, is off to a great start so far in 2019 as he is 1-1 with a 2.96 ERA. What is really impressive is that he has the No. 2 strikeout rate (13.32 per 9) in all of Major League Baseball, trailing only Jacob DeGrom of the New York Mets.

In addition, for those of you into advanced stats, Boyd leads all Major League Baseball pitchers with a 1.2 WAR (Wins above replacement) threw his first four starts of the season.

The chances of Boyd keeping up this pace are not very good, but if he can continue to pitch well, you can bet teams in contention will be calling the Tigers as the trade deadline approaches.
