Mize (shoulder) allowed one hit and two walks over a scoreless two-thirds of an inning during his rehab start at High-A Lakeland on Wednesday, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports. The real issue for Mize was his pitch count, as the 32 pitches in less than an inning is a worrying prospect for his first rehab start. The 22-year-old was expected to throw four innings or about 60 pitches, but the laborious first frame led to an early removal rather than risking a setback, according to Jason Beck of MLB.com. Mize figures to require another rehab outing before returning from the 7-day injured list.
Mize has been diagnosed with minor posterior shoulder inflammation and was placed on the 7-day injured list Friday. The Tigers are understandably exercising caution with their young pitching prospect, which is why Mize underwent an MRI after exiting Thursday night's outing due to shoulder soreness. He'll remain on the shelf for at least the next week, though he certainly won't be rushed back into action before he's ready.
Mize was lifted from Thursday's game by Double-A Erie due to right shoulder soreness, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Mize had to leave Thursday's outing after experiencing discomfort in his throwing shoulder, though the extent of the issue likely won't be revealed until further testing takes place. Expect the organization to exercise caution with one of their top pitching prospects.
Mize was removed from Thursday's start at Double-A Erie after suffering an apparent injury, Brad Galli of WXYZ Detroit reports. Mize looked uncomfortable after firing a pitch, so he was lifted from the game. The Tigers have yet to disclose details surrounding the injury.
Mize allowed four hits and two walks while striking out six across eight scoreless innings Sunday against Double-A Bowie. Mize turned in his second consecutive scoreless outing with his effort Sunday. His ERA with Double-A Erie is now 1.40, and he's struck out 35 across 38.2 innings. Mize continues to impress and is backing up his pedigree as the number one overall pick in the 2018 draft.
