BYB Podcast 72: Matt Boyd and other joys with Alex Fast of the Pitcher List

The BYB staff talks baseball from a Tigers’ perspective.

MLB: Spring Training-New York Yankees at Detroit Tigers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

If you’re not familiar with the fine website Pitcher List, well you should be. One of our favorite sites for baseball analysis and good writing, the site has evolved from fantasy coverage and video focusing mainly on pitching, into a full-blooded baseball site covering all topics with a lot of great insight. We were pleased to welcome Alex Fast, VP of Pitcher List, to the podcast to talk about the Tigers 2020 pitching staff and pitching in general.

We talked a lot about Matt Boyd, because Boyd remains one of the more intriguing pitchers and developing personalities in the game. Beyond him, we look through the Tigers rotation and the odds of a better showing this season.

You can find Pitcher List’s interview with Matt Boyd right here.

Joe Jimenez is another interesting breakout candidate, and we’ll discuss his stuff, and the Tigers organizational philosophies as it comes to pitching and pitcher usage.

Finally we’ll talk the Tigers big three, as Casey Mize, Matt Manning, and Tarik Skubal continue to turn heads in Lakeland.
