Casey Mize

(ranks out of 116 rookies)

Grade: D

Analysis: The biggest name of all the rookies to arrive for the Tigers so far, Casey Mize has had a rough go of it in his first three outings. He flashed signs of his skill in his debut, and there’s no disputing how nasty his splitter is, but Mize has struggled to throw quality strikes, and innings have snowballed on him quickly. Mize has run into a little bad luck, but it’s been a rocky start.
