  • 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.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Nearing rehab assignment

    Mize (elbow) is nearing a rehab assignment, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Mize made just two starts this season before being sidelined with a sprained right elbow. He's been throwing again for nearly two weeks, and while he doesn't have a concrete date for the start of his rehab assignment, it's expected to begin not long after Matt Manning (shoulder) begins his Sunday.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Gearing up to face live batters

    Mize (elbow) has thrown multiple bullpen sessions at the Tigers' spring facility in Lakeland, Fla. and could be set to face live batting hitters as soon as this weekend, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Mize was placed on the 10-day injured list April 15 with an elbow sprain, but he's getting closer to a return. If his live batting session goes well this weekend, he would likely be set to make a rehab start at some point next week. Mize will likely make more than one start on his rehab assignment, placing his return to the Tigers somewhere around mid-to-late May.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Starts throwing program

    Mize (elbow) began a throwing program Monday, Evan Woodbery of reports.

    Mize has been sidelined nearly two weeks by a medial elbow sprain, and his return to throwing is a significant step in his recovery. The 24-year-old will need to build his arm back up after the brief shutdown, so he's unlikely to be back from the injured list for at least a couple weeks.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Timeline for throwing program hazy

    Mize, who was recently diagnosed with a medial elbow sprain, is considered day-to-day but remains without an official timeline to begin a throwing program, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Mize is dealing with less soreness compared to when he first experienced pain in his elbow following his April 14 start against the Royals, but he'll continue to receive treatment until the Tigers are confident he's no longer dealing with symptoms of the injury. For what it's worth, the club seems optimistic that Mize's injury isn't a significant one, but his hazy recovery timeline could make it tough to justify holding him, especially in shallower mixed leagues.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Nature of injury clarified

    Mize (elbow) underwent further testing that revealed a sprained medial collateral ligament, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

    Mize was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right elbow sprain Friday, but he's feeling better Saturday. He'll be examined further once the team returns to Detroit on Monday, but it's encouraging that he's already dealing with less soreness a day after being place on the IL. It's not yet clear when the right-hander will be able to return. Michael Pineda is expected to take Mize's place in the rotation.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Sidelined by elbow sprain

    Mize was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a right elbow sprain.

    Mize pitched five innings against the Royals on Thursday and while he struck out just two batters he was far from terrible, allowing two runs on six hits. The Tigers are calling his absence precautionary for now, but any elbow issue is potentially a significant worry for a pitcher. Tyler Alexander, who had been filling in for Michael Pineda, will likely remain in the rotation until Mize returns, with Pineda nearly ready to go after a visa delay slowed his spring buildup.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Tosses five innings in no-decision

    Mize struck out two in five innings while allowing two runs on six hits and two walks in a 4-2 win Thursday in Kansas City. He did not factor into the decision.

    Mize spent most of the game pitching around trouble and allowed two runs to score in the fourth inning. The 24-year-old needed 88 pitches to get through five frames and left the game with the score tied 2-2. Over 10 innings this season, he has only four strikeouts and has allowed 13 hits. His next start will likely be next Wednesday against the Yankees.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Takes loss Saturday

    Mize (0-1) allowed four runs on seven hits across five innings to take the loss Saturday against the White Sox. He struck out two and didn't have any walks.

    Mize struggled against a tough Chicago lineup, with a two-run bomb by Yasmani Grandal in the sixth inning the final blow before the righty got pulled. The 24-year-old had a solid 2021 campaign and followed that up with a good spring, so better days should be ahead, especially in easier matchups. Mize lines up to face the Royals on Thursday in his next scheduled start.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Set for Tuesday

    The Tigers have an off day in camp Tuesday, but Mize will pitch in a minor-league game against the Yankees that day, Evan Woodbery of reports.

    Mize last pitched in a Grapefruit League game Thursday, so this will keep the righty on his regular schedule of pitching every five days. The 24-year-old has been outstanding through two spring starts, logging five scoreless innings with nine strikeouts. He could be in line for a breakout 2022 campaign if he carries over some positive momentum into the regular season.

  • Tigers' Casey Mize: Shuts down Yankees

    Mize tossed three scoreless innings in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees. He allowed a hit and a walk, while striking out six.

    New York wasn't playing all of its regulars, but it was still an impressive performance for Mize. Through two spring starts, the righty has logged five scoreless innings with nine strikeouts. After an up-and-down rookie campaign in 2020 and some marked improvement last year, Mize could be primed for a full breakout in 2022.
