It's been a tough go for White who underwent hip flexor surgery in 2021 before his 2022 campaign was cut short due to a hernia injury that required surgery. The 26-year-old has struggled mightily with the bat at the big-league level, hitting just .165 with 10 home runs and a .543 OPS across 84 games and 306 trips to the plate. Perhaps known most for signing a six-year, $24 million contract before even playing a single MLB game, he'll need to outduel Ty France for playing time at first base in 2023.
