No. 1 pick Casey Mize throws no-hitter in Double-A debut

Casey Mize

The Detroit Tigers have to be absolutely thrilled over what they’re seeing from prospect Casey Mize.

Mize, whom they made the No. 1 overall pick in last year’s MLB draft, has been spectacular this year. The Auburn product was 2-0 with a 0.35 ERA in four starts at High-A Lakeland this season. His dominance earned him a promotion to Double-A Erie. And guess what? In his Double-A debut on Monday, Mize threw a no-hitter.

Mize pitched a shutout, allowed just a walk and hit by pitch, and struck out seven in the SeaWolves’ 1-0 win. As a bonus, Jason Beck points out that Mize threw a “Maddux”, which is a complete game shutout with under 100 pitches, highlighting the efficiency of his pitching.

The outing makes him 3-0 with a 0.20 ERA and 0.26 WHIP this season, across all levels. Those are just silly numbers.

Mize popped up on our radar when he struck out 15 batters in a game last year for Auburn. He is carrying over his dominance to pro ball as well.
