  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Focusing on strengthening work

    Mize is working on maintaining full range of motion in his surgically repaired elbow at this stage of the offseason and has progressed to the strengthening phase of his rehabilitation process, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    After undergoing Tommy John surgery in mid-June, Mize is likely a month or more away from starting a throwing program, but he should at least be ready to play catch during spring training, if not throw off a mound. He'll presumably open the 2023 campaign on the 60-day injured list and isn't likely to pitch until late in the season, if at all.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Surgery completed

    Mize confirmed via his personal Instagram account that he underwent successful Tommy John surgery earlier Wednesday, Evan Woodbery of reports.

    The right-hander stated that his goal is to pitch for the Tigers at some point in 2023, but if Detroit plans to bring him back in a starting role, his return may not happen until next August or September even if he endures no setbacks in his recovery. Mize made only two starts for the Tigers this season before landing on the injured list in mid-April and eventually opting for the procedure after rest and rehab didn't yield the desired results.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Requires Tommy John surgery

    Mize (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery, Jason Beck of reports.

    The right-hander doesn't actually have a torn UCL, but the procedure is still necessary since the ligament has been stretched to the point that it's lost elasticity. Mize landed on the injured list after only two starts this season, and he made one rehab start in mid-May before his elbow issues worsened. The 24-year-old will miss the rest of the season and will also be sidelined for at least the first half of 2023.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Shut down from throwing

    Manager A.J. Hinch said Tuesday that Mize (elbow) continues to feel discomfort while throwing and will be shut down while seeking additional medical opinions, Jason Beck of reports.

    Mize had his rehab slowed in mid-May but resumed throwing early last week. However, he was unable to throw from 90 feet without experiencing pain and will face another shutdown as a result. A better idea of the right-hander's status will likely come into focus after he receives additional opinions on his elbow.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Shifts to 60-day IL

    The Tigers transferred Mize (elbow) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Tuesday.

    Mize has been on the shelf since April 15 and didn't resume his throwing program until Monday, so he was already on track to spend more than the minimum 60 days on the IL. As a result, the transaction won't affect his timeline for a return. The right-hander is gradually expected to increase his long-toss distance off flat ground before potentially advancing to mound work at some point next week.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Begins throwing again

    Mize (elbow) began playing catch Monday, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    Mize made just two starts this season before hitting the injured list with a sprained right elbow. He resumed throwing in late April and advanced to a rehab assignment by mid-May, but his first rehab outing went poorly enough that the Tigers elected to pause his rehab program for over two weeks. He's trending in the right direction again but is still several steps from returning to the active roster.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Nearing throwing program

    Mize (elbow) hopes to begin a throwing program this weekend or early next week, Jason Beck of reports.

    Mize made a rehab start at Triple-A Toledo but returned to Lakeland afterward to slow down his rehab program. The right-hander has been limited to plyo throws since heading to Lakeland, so he'll presumably need some time to build back up once he resumes his throwing program. While manager A.J. Hinch is encouraged that Mize is feeling good after slowing down his rehab program, the team won't have a better idea of the righty's status until he begins his throwing program.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Slowing down rehab program

    Manager A.J. Hinch said Saturday that Mize (elbow) will return to Lakeland to slow down his rehab program, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    The right-hander made a rehab start at Triple-A Toledo on Thursday and gave up three runs on four hits and no walks while failing to strike out a batter in two-thirds of an inning. While Hinch didn't say that Mize suffered a setback, he's still feeling some pain in his elbow and wasn't able to throw at his full intensity during Thursday's outing. It's not yet clear when the 25-year-old will be able to resume his rehab assignment.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Struggles in rehab outing

    Mize (elbow) allowed three earned runs on four hits while striking out none across two-thirds of an inning during a rehab appearance with Triple-A Toledo on Thursday.

    Mize showed significant rust, which isn't a particular surprise given that he's been sidelined since mid-April. Positively, there has been no word of a setback. However, Mize was pulled after only 29 pitches, so he will likely require at least one more rehab outing, and potentially more, before being activated from the injured list.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: First rehab start on tap

    Mize (elbow) will make his first rehab start at Triple-A Toledo on Thursday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Mize has been on the injured list since mid-April due to a right elbow sprain, but he'll return to game action in the minors late this week. It's possible the 25-year-old will require more than one Triple-A start since he's been sidelined nearly a month, but his rehab assignment should be the final step in his recovery process.
