Casey Mize News
Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Casey Mize posted his seventh quality start over his last eight outings on Wednesday against the Seattle Mariners. Mize pitched six innings and allowed four hits, two walks and three earned runs while striking out six. He wound up with a no decision as the Tigers went on to lose the game 9-6 in the 11th inning. Through 12 starts on the year, Mize is 3-4 with a 3.44 ERA and 1.06 WHIP. We should start to see the Tigers manage his innings closely in the near future, but for now, he is a must-roster, must-start player in all formats.
Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Casey Mize had a strong outing against the Chicago White Sox on Thursday. Unfortunately, he was out-dueled by Chicago's starter, Lance Lynn, and wound up with his fourth loss of the year. Mize pitched seven innings and allowed five hits, no walks and three earned runs while striking out six. The three runs all came on solo home runs. Mize was fantastic in May, posting a 1.74 ERA over five starts, four of which went for quality starts. He only allowed two total home runs over the month. The Tigers are likely going to start limiting his workload soon, but for now, he needs to be rostered in all fantasy leagues. He'll make his next start on Wednesday against the Seattle Mariners.
Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Casey Mize had a strong outing against the New York Yankees on Friday. He pitched five innings and allowed five hits, no walks and one earned run while striking out seven. The only run came on a Rougned Odor solo home run in the fifth inning. Mize has now allowed exactly one run in four of his five starts in May. The fifth start wasn't much worse as he allowed two runs over six innings. He has a 1.74 ERA in May and a 3.28 ERA overall this season. Mize needs to be universally rostered at this point. Add him if it's not too late. His next start will be on Thursday against the Chicago White Sox.
Mize's MLB debut didn't go quite as planned although it was hardly a disaster. The former first overall draft pick (2018) of the Tigers struggled with his command and allowed 29 hits including seven home runs in 28.1 innings. The young right-hander's biggest issues came from working up in the zone too often with both his sinker and his slider. He had his most success with his four-seam fastball. His splitter historically his best offering generated a 28% Whiff rate but hitters also batted .313 in the small sample size. With last year's MLB experience now in his back pocket, there's no reason to think that Mize won't see improved results moving forward especially given his pedigree and past success. He's struggled this spring and has nine walks in 6.1 innings through his first three appearances. He may have to sort things out at the alternate training site before getting another big-league shot. Mize currently has an ADP in the 300 range and you may want to hold off investing too heavily in him for 2021 until he turns things around.The Tigers likely aren't going to win a ton of games in 2021 but he should eventually post solid strikeout numbers and the home run rate will normalize once the command improves.
