Mize's splitter had a lot less spin today (which is good for that pitch). So, he's definitely tweaked it from last year and it drops a lot more. If that is sustainable, that would be huge for his development. The biggest thing he's lacked is a put away pitch. He had that once with his splitter, which used to get 70 grades on the scouting scale. So, hopefully he can get that back.

I'm happy to hear he now seems to be sold on the idea of working up only with the 4 seamer. It seamed to me Casey used to try to muscle up on his two seamer and it would flatten out at about the waist and get crushed. It's OK if you mostly throw low with off speed - the more a guy gets out in front on a low pitch the more likely you are to get a nice GB.
