    Tigers could see Boyd, Urena, Haase return this weekend

    St. Louis, Mo. — It’s not completely official just yet, but after he struck out six and needed just 56 pitches to roll through 4.1 innings at Triple-A Toledo Tuesday night, Matthew Boyd is about to return to the Tigers’ starting rotation.

    “He had a great outing,” manager AJ Hinch said. “He faced some guys he’s faced before, major league guys — (Twins) Byron Buxton was down there on a rehab assignment – and it was nice he got into the fifth inning and punched some guys out. He did a nice job taking the next step.”

    Hinch and Boyd texted back and forth Wednesday morning. The plan is for Boyd to be at Comerica Park on Friday and go through a battery of tests with the Tigers’ medical and training staffs.

    “The hope is he can make a start on Sunday (against the Blue Jays) in the big leagues,” Hinch said.

    It will be Boyd’s first start since June 14 when he left in the third inning in Kansas City with what the club called arm discomfort. Boyd later said he thought the discomfort may have started a few weeks before when he had to swing the bat against the Brewers in Milwaukee.
