Matthew Robert Boyd (born February 2, 1991) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the San Francisco Giants of Major League Baseball (MLB). He previously played in MLB for the Toronto Blue Jays and Detroit Tigers.
He played college baseball for Oregon State University. In the 2013 Major League Baseball Draft, the Blue Jays selected Boyd in the 6th round. He made his MLB debut with the Blue Jays in 2015.
On January 15, 2021, the Tigers and Boyd agreed to a one-year, $6.5 million contract, avoiding arbitration. On March 22, Tigers manager A. J. Hinch announced that Boyd would be the Tigers opening day starter.
Boyd earned the opening day win on April 1, pitching six shutout innings in the Tigers 3–2 win over the Cleveland Indians. Boyd was placed on the 10-day injured list on June 15 due to a triceps strain, and was moved to the 60-day injured list on August 12.
He returned to the Tigers on August 29 to make his first start since the injury, only to suffer a forearm issue in early September that ended his season. He made just 15 starts for the 2021 Tigers, posting a 3–8 record with a 3.89 ERA.
On November 30, 2021, the Tigers non-tendered Boyd, making him a free agent. On March 20, 2022, Boyd finalized a deal with the San Francisco Giants on a one-year contract worth $5.2 million.
The deal includes up to $2.3 million in incentive bonuses, based on the number of starts Boyd makes in 2022. Boyd is recovering from forearm flexor tendon surgery and is targeting a June return.
