Matt Boyd hasn’t been featured enough this season to form a complete view of his ability to function on big-league mounds, but the totality of his career paints a bleak picture of what the Tigers and their fans could be in for this weekend.

Manager Brad Ausmus confirmed the left-hander will be called up with the intent to start on Saturday after he previously pitched out of the Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens’ rotation.

His work with the Tigers and Blue Jays, who he will pitch against on Saturday, should not inspire confidence for a Detroit triumph. In 86 2/3 career frames spanning the past two years, the 25-year-old Boyd boasts a 7.17 career ERA. He’s thrown just more than 29 innings this season, making five starts. Boyd’s ERA resides at 6.44 — which would be a career-low figure if his season ended today — which is a shade better than his Motor City assignments induced in 2015 (6.57 ERA in 10 starts and 11 total appearances).
