Astros' Forrest Whitley: Receives spring training invite
Whitley has been extended an invitation to major-league spring training, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.
Whitley was suspended for the first 50 games of 2018 for violating the minor-league drug program and was limited to eight starts for Double-A Corpus Christi as he battled oblique and lat injuries. The 21-year-old has only 31 career innings at the Double-A level and is unlikely to start the season in the majors given his inexperience. That said, Whitley, who is regarded by many as the top pitching prospect in the game, could very well reach the majors by the summer.
