Mize (6-5) allowed one unearned run on four hits and two walks with two strikeouts over seven innings in Thursday's win over the Orioles.
The rookie righty turned in his longest outing in nearly two months, holding the Orioles off the board until the seventh inning when a throwing error by Akil Baddoo allowed Baltimore's lone run to score. It was Mize's first quality start in five July appearances and the first during that stretch in which he was able to complete five-plus innings. The strikeout numbers are underwhelming -- just 87 in 111 innings -- but Mize owns a rock-solid 3.41 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in his 20 starts this season. He's tentatively scheduled to face the Red Sox at home in his next start.
Mize didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 9-8 loss to the Royals, giving up four runs on six hits and a walk over 4.2 innings. He struck out six.
The whiffs were nice, but Mize hit a wall after four scoreless innings and let Kansas City back into the game after Detroit has jumped out to a 6-0 lead. The young right-hander hasn't completed five innings in any of his last four starts, but on the season he still sports a respectable 3.63 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 85:28 K:BB through 104 frames.
Mize tossed four scoreless innings in a no-decision Monday against the Rangers. He allowed one hit and struck out two.
Mize was in a position to cruise to his sixth win of the season, as the Tigers put up 14 runs of support, but the young righty was pulled after tossing just 54 pitches through four innings. Mize hasn't gone past four innings in any of his last three starts, so it appears the club is being extra cautious with the 24-year-old's workload. He's currently at 99.1 innings this year, up from the 28.1 he logged in his MLB debut during the shortened 2020 campaign. Mize has been solid with a 3.44 ERA, but his fantasy value will be curbed unless he's allowed to work deeper into games. He lines up to face the Royals in his next scheduled start Saturday.
Mize didn't factor into the decision Wednesday against the Rangers after tossing four innings of two-run ball, allowing two hits and fanning two.
Mize has given up two or fewer runs in each of his last three starts, but it's also worth noting he has pitched into the sixth just once in that span. The young right-hander is averaging nearly six innings per start this season, but he's accumulated just seven frames across his last two appearances. He will enter the All-Star break with a 3.59 ERA across 95.1 innings.
Mize (5-5) allowed two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out four in three innings Friday, taking the loss versus the White Sox.
Mize wasn't very efficient, throwing 34 of 56 pitches for strikes in his shortest outing this year. The 24-year-old was stuck with the loss as Detroit's offense didn't show much in the contest. He's pitched to a solid 3.55 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 75:27 K:BB across 91.1 innings. Detroit may elect to be cautious with the young starter at times over the second half of the season to reduce the risk of injury in his first full major-league campaign. He lines up for a road start in Texas next week.
Mize (5-4) allowed one run across six innings to earn the win in Game 1 of a doubleheader against the Astros on Saturday. He gave up six hits and two walks while striking out five.
Against a potent Houston lineup, Mize was very effective, and the righty has now held his opponents to three earned runs or fewer in 11 straight starts. He hasn't been overpowering hitters (71 strikeouts in 88.1 innings), but the 24-year-old has been solid with a 3.46 ERA and 1.13 WHIP. The former No. 1 overall pick seems to be settling in at the MLB level as a reliable starter, and he'll look to keep rolling in his next scheduled start Friday against the White Sox.
Mize allowed three runs on eight hits and a walk over five innings in Sunday's win over the Angels. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.
Mize gave up exactly three runs for the fourth straight start and hasn't given up more than three runs in any of his last 10 outings dating back to April. The right-handed rookie was cursed by the long ball Sunday, with all three runs coming on a pair of homers by Jared Walsh and Shohei Ohtani. He's sporting a 3.61 ERA and a 66:24 K:BB through 82.1 innings this season. Mize is projected to face Houston at home next weekend.
Mize (4-4) allowed three runs across 6.2 innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Royals. He gave up seven hits and a walk while striking out three.
Mize wasn't overly dominant, but he did enough to earn his fourth win of the season. His ERA actually went up to 3.49 despite the quality start, which demonstrates how solid the second-year pro has been lately. He's now allowed three earned runs or fewer in nine straight outings, and he's gone six or more innings in eight of those starts. The 24-year-old will look to keep rolling in his next scheduled appearance Sunday against the Angels.
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.
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.
Mize allowed one earned run on five hits and no walks while striking out seven across five innings Friday, but he did not factor into the decision in a win over the Yankees.
His only run allowed came on a fifth inning solo home run by Rougned Odor. Mize tied his season high with seven strikeouts, and this was just his second start in which he didn't issue any walks. The 24-year-old has a 3.28 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP with 47 strikeouts in 57.2 innings. He's given up 11 of his 21 earned runs this season in just two starts. His next scheduled start comes Thursday against the White Sox.
Mize allowed a run on three hits and a walk with six strikeouts over 6.1 innings in a no-decision versus Kansas City on Sunday.
Mize effectively limited Kansas City's offense for most of his start until Hanser Alberto hit a sacrifice fly in the seventh inning. The right-hander missed out on the win when Carlos Santana hit a walkoff two-run home run to secure a victory for Kansas City. Mize hasn't allowed more than two runs in any of his four starts in May. The 24-year-old has a 3.42 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 40:20 K:BB across 52.2 innings. He lines up for a home start versus the Yankees in next weekend's series.
Mize (3-3) allowed one run on three hits and three walks over 7.2 innings Monday, striking out seven and earning a win over the Mariners.
Mize matched his career high with seven strikeouts and tossed a career-best 7.2 innings while picking up his second straight win. The 6-foot-3 righty rolled through seven shutout frames before serving up a solo homer to Tom Murphy in the eighth. Over his last four starts, Mize has allowed seven runs across 25.2 innings, lowering his season ERA to 3.69. He's lined up to take the mound in Kansas City this weekend.
Mize (2-3) allowed two runs on three hits across six innings to earn the win Wednesday against Kansas City. He walked two and struck out four.
The Tigers are just 12-24, but Mize has been holding his own lately. The 24-year-old has now logged three straight quality starts, though this was the first time he got a win for his efforts during the stretch. Mize has used the good run to lower his season ERA to 4.19 through seven starts, which is a nice sign of progress after he posted a 6.99 ERA across the same number of outings in his 2020 rookie campaign. He'll look to keep posting strong results his next time out Monday against the Mariners.
Mize didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 6-5 win over Boston in 10 innings after limiting the Red Sox to one run on three hits and four walks over six frames. He struck out three in the 95-pitch outing.
With only eight swinging strikes on the night, Mize didn't overpower Boston, but limiting one of MLB's most potent offenses to three base hits has to count as a win for the 24-year-old. The free passes remain a concern, however; Mize has now issued at least three walks in each of his last three starts.
Mize (1-3) was charged with the loss Thursday against the White Sox after allowing three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out six batters across six innings.
A lack of run support ultimately handed Mize the loss after the 23-year-old turned in a strong performance. Mize looked sharp early on, blanking the White Sox through the first four frames. The right-hander stumbled in the fifth inning, surrendering all three of his runs by loading the bases on a walk and a pair of singles before a run came in on a groundout by Billy Hamilton, followed by a two-run single by Leury Garcia. Unfazed, Mize answered back in the sixth inning; he worked around a leadoff double by retiring the next three batters, sending the final two down on strikes. Mize will carry a 5.06 ERA and 1.39 WHIP into his next projected start Tuesday at Fenway Park.
Mize won't pitch Wednesday against the White Sox since the game was postponed due to inclement weather.
The game will be made up via a straight doubleheader Thursday. According to Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press, Mize will start Game 1 while Matthew Boyd takes the mound for Game 2.
Mize (1-2) allowed six runs on seven hits and three walks with one strikeout in 4.2 innings in a loss to the Royals on Friday.
Mize allowed solo shots to Andrew Benintendi in the second inning and Ryan O'Hearn in the fourth. In the fifth, Mize got into trouble and was lifted for reliever Tyler Alexander. It's been a bit of a rough start to 2021 for Mize who has a 5.23 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 14:7 K:BB across 20.2 innings. He's given up 11 runs in his last two starts. The right-hander is expected to face the White Sox on Wednesday in his next start.
Mize is averaging 95.2 mph with his fastball so far this season and has added more velocity than any pitcher in the league to date, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
Mize averaged 93.7 mph on his fastball last year, and no pitcher in the majors has made as big of a jump in the early going this season. The improved fastball has helped the 23-year-old get off to a solid start, as he's recorded a 3.38 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 13 strikeouts through his first three appearances (16 innings pitched). The former No. 1 overall pick should continue to improve, and he's an intriguing fantasy player, particularly in dynasty formats.
Mize (1-1) took the loss against Oakland on Saturday, pitching five innings and allowing five runs on seven hits while striking out four.
Mize gave up only seven hits in the contest, but four went for extra bases and three left the yard. The right-hander didn't walk anybody but hit two batters while throwing 63 of 95 pitches for strikes. Mize entered the outing having given up just one run over 11 innings, so his ERA still stands at a solid 3.38 despite Saturday's rough start. His next opportunity to take the mound will come at home against Kansas City on Friday.
