SP Casey Mize, DET

Last summer, Mize looked like a lock to make the Tigers’ rotation out of spring training in 2020 after allowing eight runs and 41 hits over his first 75.2 innings in the minors. Over this span, he posted a 0.95 ERA and .159 BAA with 11 walks and 73 strikeouts while winning eight games with no losses.

Mize landed on the injured list in mid-June with a right shoulder issue. When he returned to the mound in July, his stuff lost value (6.61 ERA, .292 BAA, and 1.564 WHIP).

Over his final two seasons at Auburn, Mize went 18-8 with a 2.77 ERA, 25 walks, and 265 strikeouts over 198.1 innings.

Detroit drafted him first overall in 2018. With the Tigers in no position to win this year, they won’t push Mize too hard, but there is no doubt he is on the fast track to the majors.

He has a plus command with electric upside in strikeouts. Mize locates his fastball well in and out the strike zone while offering a top of the line swing and miss split-finger fastball. He’s developing a feel for a cutter while owning an elite slider as well.

In the early draft season, fantasy owners are sleeping at the wheel based on his ADP (540). I expected him to make a 2018 Chris Paddock push in drafts in March while still being a value wherever he falls.
