In Buffalo, mgr Gary Allenson says #BlueJays said to scratch Matt Boyd from start today and “back him off two days.” Jays need Sat. starter.— John Lott (@LottOnBaseball) June 25, 2015
Should have probably posted this interview sooner as it was recorded way back in late April. Our boy Jay Floyd caught up with the left hander when only the true die hards knew who he was. Matt Boyd was just a guy who finished off the 2014 season in AA New Hampshire giving up 33 earned runs in his 10 starts.
Well, now take a look at his game logs for the 2015 season. That's fun!
In this 8 minute interview they cover:
- his offseason surgery to have a bone chip removed from his pitching elbow which Matt describes as "Nothing too serious. No. No."
- when asked about his out pitch, he states he has four out pitches
- his repertoire which consists of a 4 seam fastball, change up, curve and slider
Not sure if this guy gets the call up for the weekend start or not but figured you might want to get to know him a little better.
