Mitch White coming out party

The spring has been a buzz with what Mitch White brought to the Dodger banquet of all worldly pitching prospects and yesterday he showed major league hitters what might be in store for them in future.

You would think that a 20-year-old phenom would still be the talk of the town, but Julio Urias is now old news. The new kids in town even if older are Yadier Alvarez, Walker Buehler, and now Mitchell White.

Facing major league hitters for the first time in his career, Mitchell White blew through the same lineup that touched Clayton Kershaw for two runs. White went three innings, gave up two hits, two walks, and struck out two including home run extraordinaire Nelson Cruz.

This might be hard to fathom but since none of Alvarez, Buehler, or White will be having their rookie status expire in 2017, you just might see all three of them in the top 20 among prospect lists.  I really can’t remember a time the Dodgers had such riches on the farm when you add Urias and Brock Stewart to the mix.

No wonder the Dodgers have felt comfortable moving Chase De Jong, Jose De Leon, Jharel Cotton, Frankie Montas, Grant Holmes, and even Zach Lee over the past eight months to strengthen the major league team.

This is what Dave Roberts had to say on March 20th after watching White.

“This was our first chance to see Mitchell White, and it’s real,” Roberts said, per the Los Angeles Times. “He’s got a big arm, with sharpness on the secondary [pitches], mound composure. You’ve sometimes got to see it to believe it, but he lived up to to the billing.”

“We’ll see how they develop over the summer. It was eye-opening to watch him pitch yesterday,” Roberts added with a smile.

Here is the MLB.TV condensed version of the game if you are a subscriber. If not, what are you waiting for?

Ha ha, little update but if you watch the condensed version of the game it seems that Omar Estevez playing 2nd base made every putout. He was everywhere.
