22-Year-Old First Baseman1B
Seattle Mariners A+
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Unfortunately, we were denied a large sample size for White in his first pro season, but the early returns are very encouraging. A quadriceps injury limited him to just 14 games in the Northwest League, but he was 38 percent better than a league average hitter and notched a 6:6 K:BB in 55 plate appearances. White has a chance to be a truly unique first base prospect, as he is billed as an excellent hitter with plus speed and debatable power. Like Cody Bellinger, White can play the outfield, but his elite defense should keep him on the infield dirt. Typically a first baseman who lacks plus power has a hard time generating fantasy value, but White's speed and hit tool could allow him to be the exception to that rule. Of course, thus far, he has shown that his power potential may have been undersold around the draft. The Mariners should assign him to the Midwest League for his age-22 season, where he could establish the potential for five-category production at first base. Read Past Outlooks
