Auburn pitcher Casey Mize pitches against LSU Friday, May 18, 2018, at Hitchcock Field at Plainsman Park in Auburn, Alabama.

It wasn't a shock that the Detroit Tigers used the No. 1 overall pick of the 2018 MLB draft to select pitcher Casey Mize. 

It also wasn't a shock that the Tigers fan base was thrilled with the pick: 

Mize won't be the only former Auburn player moving to Detroit. H ewill join Lions running back Kerryon Johnson. 

Then there was one who is already ready for Mize to put on the mound in Detroit.
