Matthew Boyd has been a rare bright spot for Detroit in the early going, posting an ERA+ in the 180s, while slashing his walk rate and giving up way fewer hits.
But his strikeouts are actually down, which means the BABIP is way down, too. His FIP isn’t that much better than his career mark, while his ERA is, which is suspect.
Still, he got knocked around in his most recent start. He failed to get through the fourth inning and gave up 7 hits and 4 earned runs. That was against the Pirates.
He lost a 1–0 game to the Royals in his first outing of the season, going 6 innings and giving up 4 hits and a run.
Kansas City Royals
Jakob Junis was the opposing pitcher on that day, too. Boyd was good, but Junis was even better, getting through 7 full innings with just 87 pitches. He gave up 3 hits and walked 1.
Neither offense was good in that game, but neither offense has been good for a lot more than just that game, too. There isn’t a whole lot of reason to suggest that this game should be a lot higher scoring, except for the warmer weather.
Jon Jay is slugging a measly .310 without a single homer for the Royals thus far.

Free Detroit Tigers vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction: give me Detroit.
The Royals’ offense is pitiful. At least Detroit has a chance to pop one.
