A strong first start from the right-hander has the Detroit Tigers hopefuls wondering what the future holds for the talented pitcher. Mize showed some signs of being an effective curveball pitcher, but is still working on his command. He entered the bottom of the fifth inning with one earned run on the board. However, his performance changed as he allowed three runs in the bottom half. Casey Mize is the first pitcher in Tigers history to record seven strikeouts while walking just one batter. The last pitcher to accomplish this feat in a big league debut was Stephen Strasburg on June 8, 2010.
