Minor League Notes

The Detroit Tigers selected RHP Casey Mize first overall in the MLB Draft. Max Bultman, of the Athletic, profiled Mize and wrote that the Tigers have their face of the rebuild in Mize. Personally, I thought either Alex Faedo or Matt Manning would be the face. It’s a great read none the less and is a free read from the Athletic.
