Casey Mize will not make MLB debut on Sunday

Casey Mize is not making his major league debut on Sunday against the Reds.

Fantasy Impact

Manager Ron Gardenhire seemed to indicate that a Mize promotion was in order on Saturday, but that's not what ended up happening. "That’s not my department," Gardenhire said. "We needed a pitcher for the game, and Daniel Norris is the next guy in line. He’s the one that's been here, done it. Al, we talked about it, and that’s the guy." Still, the No. 1 overall pick from the 2018 draft should be up sooner rather than later.

Casey Mize could debut Sunday against Reds?

Jason Beck of MLB.com reports that Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire "strongly hinted" the team could promote Casey Mize to make his MLB debut on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

"I think you guys have a pretty good feeling about it," Gardenhire said. Official word could come later today but savvy fantasy players might want to stash Mize now. The matchup with the Reds isn't ideal but the 23-year-old is too talented to pass up in fantasy leagues. Mize, the No. 1 overall pick of the 2018 draft, put up a 2.55 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP in 21 starts between Single-A and Double-A last year. He struck out 106 batters in 109 1/3 innings.

Casey Mize sent to Tigers alternate training site

The Tigers reassigned top prospect Casey Mize to their alternate training site.

Fantasy Impact

No surprise. Mize is one of the best pitching prospects in all of baseball but the Tigers have zero incentive to begin his service-time clock on Opening Day. Still, there’s a decent chance he could make his debut this year. Mize would flirt with streaming potential if he gets the call this season.

Casey Mize pitches two perfect innings on Thursday

Casey Mize faces the top of the order on Thursday, and walks away perfect.

Fantasy Impact

In an intrasquad outing on Thursday, Mize went seven up, seven down in two perfect innings. After the 3rd out in inning two, a coach yelled for players to remain on the field. Mize would then proceed to strike out Jorge Bonifacio for the seventh out.

Casey Mize throws two scoreless innings

Detroit Tigers right-hander Casey Mize threw two scoreless innings in a 15-11 win over the Yankees on Thursday. Mize walked one and struck out two.

Fantasy Impact

Mize is considered one of Detroit's top pitching prospects. He is unlikely to open the season in the big leagues but he should get a chance to contribute at some point this season. Mize has a 4.50 ERA this spring.
