The Detroit Tigers have decided to shutdown top pitching prospect Casey Mize for the rest of the season.
Even though the Erie Seawolves are in a playoff chase, Dave Littlefield, Vice President of Player Development for Detroit said they are shutting Mize down from his final three starts and it’s not a medical decision.
Meanwhile, it was a marathon night of baseball in Richmond. Despite trailing 5-0 early and by a run in the 10th, 11th, and 12th innings, Richmond found a way to beat Erie 11-10 in 13 innings on Wednesday night.
The Seawolves (42-18) head to Harrisburg for a four game series beginning on Thursday.
