Though Boyd has a scar at the back of his left elbow, noting the seams of a comebacker that hit him in his last start Sunday at Minnesota, he can throw and expects to make his next start. He has back-to-back quality outings.

Unless Verlander is traded, he’ll take the mound against an Astros lineup that hit three home runs in one inning off him May 25 in Houston. With the non-waiver Trade Deadline a day later, it could be his last outing as a Tiger.
