White was assigned to minor-league camp Saturday. As a non-roster invitee, White was always a long shot to break camp on the big-league roster. His .074/.103/.111 spring slash line certainly didn't help his case. He could push for a bench role later this season if he sorts things out in the minors although he doesn't have a path to regular playing time.
White is in the lineup for Saturday's spring game, according to Hazel Mae of Sportsnet. White has been limited to pinch-hit duty up to this point, but he is set to start Saturday's game at first base. After spending last season in the KBO, White is competing for a spot on the Blue Jays' roster this spring.
White has yet to report to camp due to the inclement weather in Texas, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports. White is trying to get back to the big-league level following a brief stint with the KBO's SK Wyverns, with whom grabbed just three hits in nine games before fracturing his finger. The delay certainly isn't helping his case, but he could still have enough time to try to win a job if he's able to arrive soon.
White signed with the Blue Jays as a non-roster invitee Tuesday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports. White has had brief periods of success at the big-league level, but his overall .236/.315/.409 slash line in 859 MLB plate appearances isn't good enough for a first baseman. He's now 30 years old and is coming off a season in which his only game action came in a nine-game stint for the KBO's SK Wyverns. He hit just .136/.367/.318 in those games before fracturing a finger, ending his season prematurely.
White signed a contract with the SK Wyverns of the KBO on Wednesday, Daniel Kim of MBC Sports+ reports. White had been with the Dodgers in spring training but was not included in the team's 60-man player pool, so he'll head to South Korea in search of at-bats. White has produced a roughly league-average 98 wRC+ in 257 career MLB games, so it's not out of the question he unlocks something overseas given everyday at-bats. However,he's already 29 years old, so his odds of making a big-league comeback aren't particularly high.
