Detroit Tigers

Pitch Repertoire At-A-Glance

Although they have not thrown an MLB pitch in 2023, Casey Mize threw 3,585 pitches that were tracked by the PITCHf/x system between 2020 and 2022, including pitches thrown in the MLB Regular Season and Spring Training. In 2022, they relied primarily on their Fourseam Fastball (94mph) and Slider (85mph), also mixing in a Splitter (86mph) and Curve (82mph). He also rarely threw a Sinker (94mph).


In 2022, compared to other RHP:
His fourseam fastball results in more flyballs compared to other pitchers' fourseamers, has some natural sinking action and has essentially average velo. His slider is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sliders, has primarily 12-6 movement and has some two-plane movement. His splitter has dives down out of the zone, results in somewhat more flyballs compared to other pitchers' splitters and has slight armside fade. His curve generates fewer whiffs/swing compared to other pitchers' curves, is much harder than usual and has primarily 12-6 movement. His sinker (take this with a grain of salt because he's only thrown 7 of them in 2022) is basically never swung at and missed compared to other pitchers' sinkers, is an extreme flyball pitch compared to other pitchers' sinkers, has slight armside run and has slightly above average velo.
