(WXYZ) -- The Detroit Tigers will shut down top prospect Casey Mize for the remainder of the season, the team announced Wednesday.
Mize made his last start of the season for Double-A Erie on Saturday, August 11.
Tigers had several officials and evaluators in Erie for Mize's last start Saturday. While numbers were good, opinion among some scouts was that he wasn't as crisp. Decision came shortly after that:https://t.co/5YCJdwaFA8— Jason Beck (@beckjason) August 21, 2019
In 21 minor league starts this season in Lakeland and Erie, Mize went 8-3 with a 2.55 ERA, 106 strikeouts and 23 walks.
