Alex White is coming to the big leagues.

The Indians announced that White, their top draft pick in 2009, will make his big-league debut Saturday against the Tigers. White takes the place of Carlos Carrasco, placed on the disabled list Thursday with inflammation in his right elbow.

White has a 1.90 ERA in his first four starts at Triple-A Columbus, with five walks and 28 strikeouts in 23 2/3 innings. White, whose fastball touches 97 mph, was ranked by Baseball America as the 47th-best prospect in the whole minor leagues.

The Indians don't expect Carrasco to be out long. Club officials said tests show no structural damage, but the team wants to be careful with the 24-year-old, who was part of the 2009 Cliff Lee trade with the Phillies.

The Indians replaced Carrasco on the 25-man roster by recalling Frank Herrmann from Columbus, but Herrmann is a reliever. The team will make another roster move to activate White on Saturday.

White was considered the Indians' top pitching prospect last winter, but club officials are now even more excited about 2010 first-round pick Drew Pomeranz, who is now on a fast track. Pomeranz had a great spring, is off to a good start at Class A Kinston, and will likely be promoted to Double-A soon.
