Matthew Boyd is returning to the Detroit Tigers.
Boyd, a left-handed pitcher, agreed to a one-year, $10 million contract with the Tigers on Thursday, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. His deal, pending a physical, includes $1 million in performance bonuses.
The club has not confirmed the signing.
The 31-year-old previously pitched for the Tigers from 2015-21, earning the nod as the Opening Day starter in 2020 and 2021. After the 2021 season, the Tigers non-tendered Boyd — making him a first-time free agent — rather than paying him a projected $7.3 million in salary arbitration.
He will be a starting pitcher in the 2023 season.
