This is the third year I’m writing a Casey Mize rookie outlook post. Lowercase yay. Never the hoo:

Waste time with a Mizerpiece
Don’t waste time with a Mizerpiece
You should be rolling with me
You should be rolling with me, ah
You’re a real-life fantasy
You’re a real-life fantasy.

I have designated his stuff Cake by the Ocean. No one comes back from that with realistic expectations. Last person to even come close was a 1988 fantasy outlook post I did for Kevin Blankenship, who Baseball-Almanac ranks in the top 500 still living players who debuted in 1988. A worthy designation! Prior to going forward, let’s go back to what I’ve said previously, “Mize’s final Double-A numbers were 78 2/3 IP, 8.7 K/9, 2.1 BB/9, 2.98 FIP. Can’t lie, that injury worries me (he had shoulder inflammation in June of 2019), and I’m afraid of ghosts and that Mize might need some major surgery before resting for 18 months and then returning to being an ace. Specifics on his stuff:  double-plus splitter with a plus heater, slider, and control.” And that’s me quoting me! Then the Tigers promoted Casey Mize this year, because they’re wont to promote prospects super fast, which is awesome, and Mize was, well, less than awesome. His stats from this year: 0-3/6.99/1.48/26 in 28 1/3 IP. That gives me a big gulp, and not like the giant drink from 7-11 that you need two hands and both feet to hold. So, what can we expect from Casey Mize for 2021 fantasy baseball?

Hey, whatever happened to Matt Manning? Tarik Skubal? Why are there so many rookie starters? Siri, that’s me asking you. “Sorry, Grey, you didn’t address me first.” That sonavab–So, Casey Mize appears healthy, which great. Also, unlike so many other rookies for redraft, Mize looks locked into the starting rotation to start 2021. That’s also terrific. “Opportunity is all the shots you take,” a famous quote by Wayne Gretzky. Unlike Kevin Blankenship, I don’t think a beating heart is all Mize will have going for him, but his previous year shows the problem with trusting rookie starters. Honestly, if they’re both in the rotation, I kinda like Luis Patino more than Casey Mize. I just need 100 innings of solid throwy-ball, I don’t need a guy that’s gonna be great in two years, which is what Mize could be. When just looking at Mize’s career minor league strikeout rates numbers being under-9, I’m slightly puzzled why we keep getting all crazy for him. The command is spectacular, even if it wasn’t last year. He looks like a 1.50 to 2 BB/9 starter, which makes it hard to imagine things going too sideways. He feels like a guy who will be a much better real world starter than a fantasy one. Like a late-era Zack Greinke. That’s not bad, mind you. I’m not out here saying Mize is gonna be Kevin Blankenship. I’m just…Well, this is gonna be the last time for some time I’m writing a post dedicated to Casey Mize (now watch him throw a no hitter in April). For 2021, I’ll give Casey Mize projections of 7-12/4.37/1.22/124 in 129 IP.

    I hate to rain on your parade, but I have this feeling Casey Mize and Doc Andrews are going to be friends before years end.

  2. Jon Gray’s Broken Toe says:

    Yup yup yup

    I drafted Mize as a dynasty prospect in his draft year and held my nose doing so. Despite the mediocre stats, I could not walk away from that splitter. This is the kind of player who you want to fail on your team, not your competition. That splitter could make him amazing… but if the splitter doesnt come through he could stink.

      Yup, 100% agree

        There was absolutely no reason to be writing a ‘Rookie Fantasy Outlook’ on Casey Mize prior to 2020. You guys always get ahead of yourself when it comes to prospects.

          People thinking Dom Smith is gonna be a thing, I don’t know…Also, that Framber love…Edwin Diaz can’t ever be bad in drafters eyes either…Wow, that Chapman pick is a steal

          • Dave D says:
            (link)

            I do like Framber. Seeing him go 7 IP in playoffs is a good sign of confidence in his ability.

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              Yeah, I guess, he still feels like a #3-4 tho, but I guess it depends on team build…I don’t like him at that draft spot, but I do like him in general

              • Dave D says:
                (link)

                Yeah, I like Luzardo a lot, so hopefully he delivers…

                  Yeah, big fan of him this year with a little more distance between him and injuries

  5. Smitty says:

    Takin a wait and see approach (as in wait until 2022) with Casey. Want to see how his stuff plays out, while acknowledging his split is a true out pitch. SP’s that have big success using the splitter/change are usually the guys that can set hitters up with a high octane heater, which Mize doesn’t have. Strikes me as a grinder type that will settle in and get IP and some W’s, but at what cost? The underlying fear is overuse of the split can lead to injury. Actually like his LH teammate better.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Skubal? Yeah, prolly a little bit better upside, and a little bit more down side (for 2021)

  6. The Great Knoche says:
    (link)

    Skubal looked awful after his call up to to giving up a Home Run every time a fly ball happened., but I think he may be better long term fantasy player from a floor perspective. WHIP and ERA look like they should be very stable, and Ks dont suck.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Trying to decide if I think his floor is better or his ceiling is better, and I’m not sure we’re not asking ourselves this in 3 years time

      Wow, Patrick Corbin has fallen, huh? So many great values here — Soler is crazy value, and Hosmer’s going late like 2020 never happened — wishful thinking perhaps — Just about every prospect pick feels like a reach, but I guess they’re lottery picks in case they break camp

      • Dave D says:
        (link)

        Yeah, Corbin looked awful in 2020. Power is pretty cheap still, so I’ll be looking for more pitching and filling in the blanks.,,

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, agreed on Corbin, but wow that is a fall…

          Speaking of blanks, I saw Kyle Blanks clone, Franmil is still going so late too…

          • Dave D says:
            (link)

            Yeah, I guess Franmil Blanks is value. I’m trying to pass on any low AVG guys this year. I’d like to have a .270 team BA. There are some good super late potential power options if you don’t mind low AVG, so I figure why draft them early?

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              Yeah, that’s fair…Franmil might not drain that much on AVG tho and that power, so late…I like

      • Dave D says:

        Yeah, thanks! I see Varsho .270 12/12. I’ll take that anyday. Yeah, just adding depth and closers now…

          Yeah, I guess on Varsho…He’s fine, prolly vcould get that later, but it’s not a big deal either way

          • Dave D says:
            (link)

            Yeah, it’s more that he fits into my team-building pretty well. I didn’t get any genuine theives and I’m trying to avoid no-steals guys(other than Abreu) or steals guys that get little else. I kinda want 4 or 5 cats from every position I can get. I’m getting greedy, I know, but I have a discipline I’m following pretty closely on this draft…
