DETROIT (AP) The most promising moment for the Detroit Tigers this year may have occurred far away from Comerica Park - or any other major league field.
On April 29, Casey Mize threw a no-hitter in his debut for Double-A Erie.
After narrowly avoiding triple-digit losses the previous two seasons, the big league Tigers sank all the way to a 47-114 record in 2019. They were particularly awful at home, going 22-59. If there was going to be any cause for optimism, it was going to be because of young prospects who might be able to help this team in the future.
