Tigers vs. Royals preview: Casey Mize hunts for a series win

The Tigers pitching staff is gassed. They certainly aren’t alone in this, as pitchers seem to be going down at an unusually high rate of late. Unfortunately, it is a problem that doesn’t have a whole lot of potential answers in the Tigers farm system right now. What would really help, is strong outings from their two prized young starters, Casey Mize and Tarik Skubal, to help get the bullpen some rest while still taking this series with a least one win in the next two games.

Load management: Tigers push Matthew Boyd and Casey Mize starts back one day

Detroit — The Tigers are listing TBA as their starting pitcher for Sunday. That would be lefty Matthew Boyd’s turn in the rotation. But fear not, there is no injury involved here, just physical maintenance. “Boyd is getting an extra day (of rest) simply because of the length of the...

Buy or Sell – Casey Mize, Free Willy Adames, and Harold Ramirez

FantraxHQ is the official content sponsor of, the hottest Fantasy Site of 2019 and 2020. Last week, I discussed my FOMO for Adolis García and I revisited Nick Pivetta in my recent buy or sell article here. This week, I have a teeny bit of regret regarding Casey Mize as well. The Tigers seem to have something interesting going on with their pitchers adding or upping their slider usage. It’s happening with Mize, Tarik Skubal, and Spencer Turnbull so far in 2021. Not that it’s the only reason, but the results improved this season.

Detroit Tigers: Good News and Bad News about Casey Mize and Tarik Skubal

Pitchers Casey Mize and Tarik Skubal watch practice. The Detroit Tigers are now a month deep into a stretch of quality, competitive baseball. That seemed impossible after a 9-24 start in which they sported an ugly -74 run differential, but since May 8th the Tigers are 16-10, and they’ve outscored their opponents 118-102.

Detroit vs. Seattle Preview: Casey Mize looks to lead the Tigers to a series win

It remains a bit of a mystery how they’re managing this—thanks Eric Haase—but your Detroit Tigers continue to play respectable baseball. Obviously the starting pitching has been the biggest contributing factor, and that is going to be tested with Spencer Turnbull out and Jose Ureña just returned from an injured list stint of his own. Fortunately, the Tigers rookies have been up to the task.

Tigers' Casey Mize: No-decision versus Seattle

Mize allowed three runs on four hits, two walks and two hit batters while striking out six in six innings in a no-decision versus Seattle on Wednesday. Mize lacked a bit of control, throwing just 56 of his 99 pitches for strikes. The right-hander still picked up a quality start for the seventh time in his last eight outings. He's pitched to a 3.44 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 59:22 K:BB across 70.2 innings this season. The 24-year-old is expected to make his next start in Kansas City next week.

Why Detroit Tigers' Casey Mize feeling 'disappointed' illustrates his 'edge that matters'

Detroit Tigers manager AJ Hinch knew Casey Mize wouldn't be pleased. "Disappointed, for sure," Mize said Thursday night. "I love the fact that he's going to leave tonight pretty pissed off," Hinch said. "I mean, he didn't keep the ball in the ballpark the way he wanted to. To his night, he feels he should have thrown a shutout with his stuff. He's got that edge that matters when you're on the mound."

Tigers' Casey Mize: Pitches well but suffers loss

Mize (3-4) allowed three runs across seven innings and took the loss Thursday against the White Sox. He gave up five hits and no walks while striking out six. Mize was tagged for solo home runs in each of the first two innings and then again in the seventh, but the young righty otherwise pitched well in this one. Of course, allowing three homers is a bit disconcerting, though Mize's 1.4 HR/9 is down from the 2.2 figure he posted last season. Mize has also lowered his ERA from 6.99 in 2020 to 3.34 so far this year. He'll look to post another quality start and hopefully pick up a win his next time out, which is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday against the Mariners.

Niyo: With Tarik Skubal and Casey Mize dealing, Tigers’ future starts to take shape

They arrived together in the big leagues, so maybe it’s no coincidence that they’re arriving now at just about the same time, too. But nine months after Casey Mize and Tarik Skubal boarded the Tigers’ team plane for the first time, headed to Chicago to make their major-league debuts last August — “Skub and I sat together and we were kind of in awe, honestly,” Mize said at the time — they’re now settling in and feeling like they belong.

New York Yankees @ Detroit Tigers: Gerrit Cole vs. Casey Mize

Almost exactly a month ago, Gerrit Cole faced the Detroit Tigers at Yankee Stadium, and absolutely dissected their lineup. The Yankee ace threw six shutout innings, stuck out twelve, and didn’t walk a single man. He’ll look to replicate that performance tonight against these very same Tigers, this time from Comerica Park.

Yankees vs. Tigers prediction: Casey Mize has surprise for Bombers

A fan at MSG spat on Atlanta’s Trae Young?! I’d say New York is back to normal. The Yankees played two in The Bronx on Thursday then flew to Detroit for a weekend series with the Tigers. Their ace, Gerrit Cole (6-2, 1.81 ERA), rebounded from a five-run-over-five-frames toasting in Texas to throw seven scoreless innings against the White Sox.
