Tigers GM Al Avila says Casey Mize and Tarik Skubal will both have a chance to compete for a rotation spot in spring training.
"We'll see how it goes," Avila elaborated. "Right now I can't tell you if both of them will make the club or if one of them. But they'll have a chance." Skubal is an exciting prospect in his own right, but Mize was the No. 1 overall pick from the 2018 draft. He went on to register a disappointing 6.99 ERA in seven big league starts in 2020. Both of these young hurlers should be on your end-of-draft radar due to upside alone.
Detroit Tigers right-hander Casey Mize allowed six runs over 4 2/3 innings in a 7-6 loss to the Twins on Wednesday.
Mize finished with four strikeouts and allowed two homers in the loss. He finishes his rookie campaign with a 0-2 record, 6.99 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, and 26 strikeouts in 28 1/3 innings of work. Detroit will hope the top prospect takes several steps forward heading into the 2021 season.
Detroit Tigers right-hander Casey Mize struggled in a 10-3 loss to the Indians on Thursday. Mize allowed five runs (three earned) over 3 2/3 innings of work in the start.
Mize struck out one and walked two in the loss. He served up two homers, both to Jose Ramirez. Mize now has a 0-2 record and 6.08 ERA through six starts.
Detroit right-hander Casey Mize allowed two runs in 5 1/3 innings in a 4-3 loss to the White Sox on Friday.
Mize held a dangerous Chicago lineup at bay but had to settle for a no-decision in the eventual loss. The rookie phenom has a 0-1 record, 5.85 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, and 21 strikeouts in 20 innings of work.
Detroit Tigers right-hander Casey Mize allowed three runs in four innings in a 10-8 win over the Twins on Sunday. Mize struck out three and walked two on the afternoon.
Mize has loads of potential, although he has yet to flash much of it through his four starts for the Tigers. He now has a 0-1 record, 6.75 ERA, 1.70 WHIP, and 16 strikeouts in 14 2/3 innings of work. Mize will face the White Sox next.
