Mitchell White
23-Year-Old PitcherRP
Los Angeles Dodgers AA
2018 Fantasy Outlook
It is not an overly exciting profile, but White's polish and proximity to the big leagues makes him rosterable in most dynasty leagues. He was not as good as his 2.57 ERA at Double-A suggests, but was still very solid for a pitcher with such little pro experience. White was touching 97 mph in spring training but was down to 92 mph in the fall instructional league, so fatigue might have been a factor at the end of his first full season. If his stuff bounces back, he will feature a 92-95 mph fastball that can play as a plus pitch thanks to excellent life, a potentially plus slider/cutter, an average curveball and solid command. That's the repertoire of a No. 3 or No. 4 starter. He missed six weeks with a toe injury last year, but has not dealt with any arm issues since undergoing Tommy John surgery in college. While he hasn't built up a significant workload yet, he has excellent size (6-foot-4, 207 pounds) and should head to Triple-A for his age-23 season. Read Past Outlooks
Healthy at Double-A
PLos Angeles Dodgers  AA
May 7, 2018
White (undisclosed) made his first start of the season Sunday for Double-A Tulsa. He threw three scoreless innings, allowing two hits and three walks while striking out four.
ANALYSIS
He missed the first month of the minor-league season with an undisclosed injury. White needed 66 pitches (41 strikes) to get through three frames, so he was clearly a little rusty, but he also brought his swing-and-miss stuff with him. The 23-year-old righty has now logged 31 total innings at Double-A, so he will likely earn a promotion to Triple-A sometime this summer.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
White is still learning how to pitch, having barely taken the mound in high school and missing time after undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2014. Still, he saw an uptick in fastball velocity during his final season at Santa Clara, developed a nasty cutter/slider, an emerging curveball and has even been working on a changeup. White's strikeout stuff saw him rise to a second-round selection in the 2016 draft, and he did not let up upon entering the minors. Shuffling between the starting rotation and the bullpen, White did not allow a run during his 22 innings, finishing the season at High-A Rancho Cucamonga with a 30:6 K:BB. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound White has the frame, control and necessary pitches to become a legitimate starter, though the Dodgers could eventually end up sending him to the bullpen. He will be 22 years old to begin the 2017 campaign, likely at Low-A, but he could advance quickly with a hot start.
