In his latest mock draft released Thursday, ESPN’s Keith Law had Auburn Tigers starting pitcher Casey Mize going first overall to the Detroit Tigers.
Mize also went first in Law’s initial mock, but he discussed an alternative option in version 2.0 if the Tigers want to save some bonus-pool cash.
“Yes, money could always be a factor, but if Mize’s medicals hold up, there isn’t a better option for the Tigers at 1-1. If Detroit does cut a deal, it could be with prep lefty Matthew Liberatore.”
