Player Outlook
When healthy, Casey Mize has looked like a solid MLB pitcher. However, an elbow injury cut his 2022 campaign short after only two starts, and then he missed all of 2023 due to Tommy John surgery. Back in 2021, Mize posted a 3.71 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 118 strikeouts across 150.1 innings in his first full season as starter for Detroit. The 26-year-old should have a rotation spot locked up heading into 2024, though the Tigers will undoubtedly limit his workload, and it's fair to expect some rust. Mize was drafted first overall back in 2018, so the talent is certainly there, and fantasy managers will be keeping a watchful eye on how he looks early in the season. However, the best bet for now is to temper expectations and probably not count on Mize for consistent production right away. He's still only made 39 starts at the MLB level, so even if he wasn't returning from a major surgery, the young righty would probably be a volatile option anyways.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Takes another loss

    Mize (1-5) took the loss Tuesday against Atlanta, allowing two runs on five hits and no walks with three strikeouts across four innings. Both of the runs charged to Mize came in the first inning, when he yielded three consecutive hits -- including a triple by Ozzie Albies -- to open up the game. While Mize hasn't found the win column since April 21, Tuesday's start added on to what's been a solid stretch for the 27-year-old. He's surrendered three or fewer earned runs in seven of his last eight appearances and owns a 4.43 ERA with a 46:19 K:BB on the year.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Allows one run in quality start

    Mize did not factor into the decision Thursday, allowing one run on four hits and one walk over six innings against the Nationals. He struck out four. Mize's only run allowed came on a sacrifice fly in the fourth, as he otherwise stymied the Nationals. It was the fifth quality start this season for Mize, and his first since May 15. Over his four starts since, he had compiled an 8.22 ERA and 2.48 ERA over 15.1 innings entering Thursday's contest. His next start is currently slated to take place next week when the Tigers travel to Atlanta for a three-game set.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Takes loss versus Brewers

    Mize (1-4) took the loss to the Brewers on Saturday, allowing five runs (three earned) on eight hits and two walks with one strikeout over 5.1 innings. Mize pitched into the sixth inning for just the sixth time this season. He was pulled with his team up 4-3, but the bullpen allowed both inherited runners to come across to score, sticking him with the loss. It was a tough break for Mize, as two of the five runs allowed were unearned. The right-hander is still looking for his second win of the campaign -- he's now gone eight straight starts without a win and has seen his ERA climb from 3.08 to 4.73 in the process.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Mediocre in no-decision

    Mize did not factor into the decision Sunday against Toronto, allowing three earned runs on eight hits and two walks in 4.1 innings. He did not strike out a batter. The right-hander started the game with three scoreless innings before allowing a two-run home run to Cavan Biggio in the fourth, marking the fifth consecutive game Mize has surrendered a home run. Over that span, the 27-year-old is 0-3 with a 6.56 ERA and 1.60 WHIP over 23.1 innings. Mize failed to record a strikeout Sunday and has struggled to miss bats all season, registering a paltry 6.16 K/9. Mize will look to bounce back in his next start, tentatively scheduled for next weekend in Boston.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Gets shelled Tuesday

    Mize (1-3) allowed six runs on nine hits across 1.2 innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Royals. He had no walks and struck out two. Not walking anyone was nice, though that's about where the positives ended for Mize, who allowed a new season high in earned runs while also recording his shortest outing of the year. His previous high was five runs allowed back on May 4, but he had allowed just three total runs across 12 innings in two starts since then. Overall, the righty now has a 4.57 ERA over 45.1 innings this season, which is only slightly above his career 4.35 mark. Mize will look for a better result in his next scheduled appearance, which is currently penciled in for Sunday against the Blue Jays.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Falls to Miami

    Mize (1-2) took the loss Wednesday against the Marlins, allowing two runs on two hits and one walk over six innings. He struck out six. Jazz Chisholm led off the game with a base hit before Bryan De La Cruz smacked a two-run homer off Mize. The right-hander would proceed to blank the Marlins over his subsequent five innings, allowing just one additional hit, though the Tigers' offense couldn't provide any support in an eventual 2-0 defeat. It's the fourth quality start of the season for Mize, who's allowed just three runs on seven hits over 12 innings in his last two outings. He sports a 3.50 ERA with a 1.19 WHIP and 32:10 K:BB across eight starts (43.2 innings) this year. Mize is currently in line for a road matchup with the Royals in his next outing.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Logs quality start

    Mize did not factor into the decision Friday against the Astros, allowing one run on five hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out two. Mize shut out Houston through five innings before serving up a Kyle Tucker solo homer to lead off the sixth. While the Tigers' bullpen couldn't hang onto the lead, it was an impressive outing from Mize after he allowed five runs in a loss to the Yankees in his last start. Overall, the 27-year-old right-hander is 1-1 with a 3.58 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 26:9 K:BB across 37.2 innings this season. Mize is currently lined up for a home matchup with the Marlins in his next start.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Tagged with loss Saturday

    Mize (1-1) took the loss Saturday against the Yankees, coughing up five runs on nine hits and a walk over 5.1 innings. He struck out six. A three-run shot by Anthony Rizzo in the third inning accounted for most of the damage off Mize, but the right-hander put plenty of traffic on the basepaths. It was the first time this season he'd allowed more than three runs in a start, and Mize will take a 3.98 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 24:7 K:BB through 31.2 innings into his next outing, which lines up to come at home next weekend against the Astros.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Earns first win

    Mize (1-0) allowed five hits and three walks over six shutout frames Sunday, striking out four and picking up a win over the Twins. Mize worked out of a few jams in the scoreless outing, including a bases-loaded threat in the first inning. He's given up three or fewer runs in each of his four starts this season and has produced back-to-back quality starts. Mize dropped his ERA to 2.95 with a 16:6 K:BB through 21.1 frames. His next start is lined up to be at home against the Royals.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Delivers quality start

    Mize didn't factor in the decision Tuesday against the Rangers after he struck out six and allowed two runs on five hits and no walks over six innings. It was an impressive performance from Mize, who kept the defending champs scoreless until the fifth inning, when Texas scratched across two runs on four hits. The right-hander generated just seven swinging strikes but still produced a season-high six strikeouts. After missing all of last season while recovering from Tommy John and back surgeries, Mize appears to have settled in through three starts with a 4.11 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 12:3 K:BB in 15.1 innings.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Solid in no-decision

    Mize allowed two runs on five hits and a walk over five innings during Tuesday's 5-3 win at Pittsburgh. He struck out two and did not factor in the decision. The right-hander didn't have his best stuff, as he generated just seven swinging strikes on 83 pitches, but he limited the damage to a pair of runs. Mize looked less rusty than in his season debut, which is encouraging after he missed the entirety of 2023 while recovering from Tommy John and back surgeries. He tentatively lines up to face the defending champion Rangers in Detroit early next week.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Logs no-decision in 2024 debut

    Mize allowed three runs on five hits across 4.1 innings and did not factor into the decision in the first game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Mets. He gave up two walks and struck out four. Mize was originally scheduled to start Tuesday, but that game was postponed twice due to inclement weather in New York. That may have thrown off the righty's normal routine, as he wasn't particularly sharp in his 2024 debut. This was also Mize's first appearance since April of 2022 following a lengthy recovery from Tommy John and back surgeries, so some rust was to be expected. The 26-year-old has plenty of upside, but the Tigers will likely exercise caution with him this year. Mize is tentatively set to take the mound again Tuesday against the Pirates.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Tigers-Mets postponed Wednesday

    Mize and the Tigers won't face the Mets on Wednesday after the game was postponed due to inclement weather at Citi Field. The interleague matchup has now been postponed for consecutive days and will be made up as part of a doubleheader Thursday. Expect Mize to start at least one of the two contests.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Tuesday start postponed

    Mize and the Tigers will not face the Mets on Tuesday after the game was postponed due to inclement weather, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Tuesday's game will be made up Thursday afternoon, which was originally a scheduled off day for both teams. Mize's first start of the season will likely be pushed back to Wednesday, moving Tarik Skubal's next outing to Thursday.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Wins spot in rotation

    Tigers manager A.J. Hinch announced Friday that Mize will be a member of the club's season-opening rotation, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports. The right-hander hasn't pitched in the big leagues since 2022 as he spent last season rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, but he pitched well enough during spring training with a 2.35 ERA and 14 strikeouts over 15.1 innings, though he did walk nine batters. Mize lines up to make his first start of the season Apr. 1 or 2 against the Mets with Tarik Skubal, Kenta Maeda and Jack Flaherty scheduled for the opening series versus the White Sox.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Still vying for rotation spot

    Mize has pitched well this spring but is still competing for a rotation spot to begin the season, Matthew Ritchie of MLB.com reports. Mize, the former No. 1 overall pick, seems likely to snag a rotation spot if he's fully healthy in his first season back from Tommy John surgery. However, the Tigers are being cautious with him, which could explain why they're not trying to put too much on the righty's plate. Reese Olson and Matt Manning are also in the mix for Detroit's final two rotation spots, with Tarik Skubal, Kenta Maeda and Jack Flaherty all locked in as starters.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: First MLB appearance in 22 months

    Mize gave up two earned runs on one hit and two walks while striking out one over 1.2 innings Tuesday in the Tigers' 6-4 win over the Blue Jays in Grapefruit League play. Mize tossed 35 pitches (17 strikes) in his spring debut, which also marked his first official MLB game in 22 months following a prolonged recovery from Tommy John and back surgeries. The 26-year-old's fastball topped out at 97.3 miles per hour and averaged 95.8 mph, a couple ticks up from his average over his two starts during the 2022 regular season. While the velocity readings are encouraging for Mize, sharpening his command and control will be the greater concerns for him as the spring unfolds. Mize isn't assured a spot in Detroit's Opening Day rotation, and even if he does secure a starting gig, he could be piggybacked by another pitcher early on during the season as the Tigers look to manage his innings in 2024.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Hopes for busy spring

    The Tigers haven't discussed any specific workload restrictions on Mize for spring training or the regular season as he returns from Tommy John surgery, MLB.com reports. Mize added that he hopes to throw "as much as they let me" in camp, though the Tigers will certainly take a cautious approach. Even if a specific innings limit isn't announced for the regular season, the team will surely be careful then as well, considering Mize last took an MLB mound in April of 2022. The righty's career high for innings in a season is 150.1, which he recorded back in 2021, and it would be safe to assume that somewhere around that number will end up being his maximum in 2024 if he's able to stay healthy. Mize can be an impact pitcher when on top of his game, but it might take him a little while to shake off some rust, so fantasy managers will need to be patient.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Reaches agreement with Tigers

    Mize signed a one-year, $840,000 contract with the Tigers on Friday to avoid arbitration Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. Mize's deal also includes a $3.1 million club option for 2025, though he would remain under team control if Detroit declined to pick up the option. Mize sat out all of last season while recovering from a Tommy John procedure, but he's been deemed healthy and should be ready to go for the start of spring training. The 26-year-old right-hander holds a 4.29 ERA and 1.21 WHIP through 188.2 career big-league innings.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Clean bill of health

    Mize is considered fully recovered from elbow and back surgeries and will enter spring training at 100 percent, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports. We last saw Mize in game action in April of 2022, as he underwent both Tommy John surgery and back surgery in the summer of that year. The right-hander has proclaimed himself "ready to go" now, though, and will attempt to show the Tigers in spring training that he should break camp as a member of their rotation. Considering Mize didn't throw an inning in 2023 and just 10.2 frames in 2022, his workload figures to be monitored closely in 2024. It's possible the Tigers could choose to ease him back into things with some starts in the minors at the beginning of next season.
