According to reports, the Detroit Tigers are holding their collective breath at LHP Matthew Boyd experienced elbow discomfort while playing catch on Thursday and he is now headed back to the IL.
Tigers manager AJ said Boyd is headed to the IL because of “recurring elbow soreness.”
From Detroit News:
“You are always concerned when it’s a recurring issue,” Hinch said. “Obviously, he had three rehab starts and two starts back in the big leagues where he felt perfectly fine. And then he goes out and plays catch and doesn’t feel good.
“At this time of year, he’s going to miss at least a couple of starts. We’ll see if he can make it back before the end of the year. But we need to do more testing and get to the bottom of why this keeps happening.”
