Although growing pains often strike in late afternoon or early evening before bed, pain can sometimes wake a sleeping child. Bone growth hasn't been proved to cause pain . So " growing " pains might just be aches and discomfort from the jumping, climbing, and running that active kids do during the day.

DETROIT — Shortly after his final start of the season, Casey Mize sounded ready to get right back to work.

“I’m going to be really motivated to get a lot better,” the Detroit right-hander said.

Mize’s arrival — along with that of fellow pitching prospect Tarik Skubal — was a significant moment for the Tigers during this shortened season, but if Detroit fans expected an immediate impact, they may have been disappointed. Mize went 0-3 with a 6.99 ERA, and Skubal was 1-4 with a 5.63 ERA.

Growing pains are aches or pains , most commonly in the lower legs, that occur in the evening or at night and affect children aged between 3 and 12. Growing pains are common in children, mainly in the legs. They're harmless, but can be very painful .

That's my question. I'm in chapter 8, but went to chapter 1 to try a different option. Now that i jumped back to chapter 8, i don't know what back story i'm following .

After 114 losses in 2019, the Tigers improved enough to move into contention for a spot in this year’s expanded post-season, but then a late collapse left them at 23-35. Only two major league teams finished behind Detroit.

Mize, the No. 1 pick in the 2018 draft, showed some of his potential in a September start when he took a no-hitter into the sixth inning against the Chicago White Sox, but he mostly struggled through his seven starts. Neither Mize nor Skubal had pitched above Double-A before this year, and because of the coronavirus pandemic, they didn’t have a chance to get a few starts under their belt in Triple-A in 2020.

“I’m not lost. I feel like I have the stuff to be here,” Mize said. “It’s execution, command, sequencing — all that stuff. It’s really tough to execute when you can’t command, and really tough to sequence when you can’t execute.”

Detroit’s offence improved a bit after a dreadful 2019, but the Tigers finished last in the majors in ERA, so the development of their young pitchers is crucial.

First, Detroit will need to hire a new manager after Ron Gardenhire retired late this season. Lloyd McClendon took over on an interim basis for the final few games.

“The rebuild is almost over with,” McClendon said. “Now it’s time to start winning ballgames and start playing the game the way you want to play it.”

INFIELD POTENTIAL

After all the talk about the pitchers, the most impressive rookie for the Tigers this year was shortstop Willi Castro, who hit .349 with a .932 OPS.

At age 26 and with over 300 major league games played, Jeimer Candelario shouldn’t really be considered a prospect, but he did take a big step forward this year, hitting .297 and finishing second on the team to Miguel Cabrera in RBIs.

AGING SLUGGER

Cabrera hit 10 home runs this year after hitting only 12 in a normal-length season in 2019. He also was healthy enough to play in almost every game in 2020 — but his .746 OPS was almost exactly the same as the previous season, and he’s showing few signs of becoming a major difference maker again. At 37, he has 487 career home runs.

BULLPEN

Joe Jimenez, who began the season as the team’s closer, finished it with a 7.15 ERA. But Bryan Garcia (1.66) had a good season, and Daniel Norris (3-1, 3.25) continues to look comfortable in a relief role.

ROTATION

Matthew Boyd, the team’s opening day starter, went 3-7 with a 6.71 ERA and has a lot to prove in 2021. Spencer Turnbull, in his second “full” season, went 4-4 with a 3.97 ERA and looks like he could be a key part of Detroit’s future.
