Checking in on Mitch White
A few blurbs from national media on Mitch White after his superlative game list night in which he pitching seven innings for the first time in his professional career.
Starting off with Baseball Prospectus:
Mitchell White, RHP, Los Angeles Dodgers (High-A Rancho Cucamonga): 7 IP, ER, 3 H, 8 K
White’s been on a hard pitch count so far, so he hadn’t so much as seen the sixth inning, let alone the seventh. He did last night on account of supreme efficiency, as he recorded 21 outs on just 67 pitches. Visalia has a poor lineup, but White was on point from the jump, surrendering just one hit through six. When that cutter’s cutting he’s as tough as you’ll see at High A, and he’s now given up just seven earned runs in six non-at-Lancaster starts.
Mitchell White, rhp, Dodgers. After a couple of rough outings, White has gotten back in stride. On Monday, the Dodgers’ No. 19 prospect tied a career high with eight strikeouts in seven strong innings as high Class A Rancho Cucamonga beat Visalia 2-1. Fifty-five of Mitchell’s 67 pitches went for strikes—an astonishing 82 percent rate—and he walked none after walking six in his past eight innings.
