However, the upside is the fact that he won’t require surgery to repair the issue. Prior to today’s game against the New York Yankees, Mize said that he was feeling good in spite of everything.
“I’m feeling good,” he said. “Given the circumstances, really positive. Taking it day by day, and then I hope to get back out there as quickly as possible.”

“That I’m not having surgery and that I’m going to pitch again soon.”
