RHP Mitch White allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits with one walk and five strikeouts over four innings of relief in a 9-6 loss to the Marlins on Wednesday.
White came on in the second inning after opener Jake Reed surrendered one run over the first inning. White fired off 65 pitches over his four innings while serving up a solo home run to Jesus Sanchez and an RBI double to Jesus Aguilar. He managed to strike out five as well. He was recalled earlier in the day as the Dodgers placed Clayton Kershaw on the injured list so he could remain with the team until the All-Star break.
Mitch White is in line to start for the Dodgers Friday against the Rockies in Colorado.
After making his debut in August, White is now expected to make his first career start. With uncertainty in how the Dodgers prospect will perform, especially in Denver, don't pick him up for his start but wait and see how he performs.
Mitch White has been recalled from the Los Angeles Dodgers' alternate site.
Walker Buehler was placed on the 10-day IL with a blister on his right hand and that move cleared space for White. The 25-year old right-hander will be making his MLB-debut whenever he appears in a game.
