White started in center field in place of Leody Taveras (back) and went 1-for-4 with a run scored in Friday's 5-4 extra-inning win over the Astros. What had been thought of as a routine day off for Taveras was later learned to be a back issue. Taveras had started 30 consecutive games prior to Friday. White has been in and out of the starting lineup, primarily in left field, and is batting .170 (8-for-47) over 18 games.
White went 3-for-4 with a stolen base in Tuesday's 7-0 loss to the Diamondbacks. White accounted for half of the Rangers' six hits, all of which were singles. He added his first major-league stolen base in the second inning. The 26-year-old has three RBI, four runs scored and 14 strikeouts through 44 plate appearances.
White went 1-for-3 with a run-scoring single in Thursday's 2-1 loss to Houston. White started in left field, his fourth start in the last six games. As the Rangers evaluate prospects and younger major-leaguers, White is being monitored for a possible starting job in the 2021 outfield. The major question is if his bat will play. His .406 OPS suggests not, but White's hit safely in four of his last five games.
White started in left field and went 0-for-2 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 7-1 over the Angels. White returned to the starting lineup as a replacement for Shin-Soo Choo, who left Monday's game with a hand injury. He and Scott Heineman are sharing left field, but that arrangement could end soon if Willie Calhoun (hamstring) returns.
White is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Mariners. White started in four of the Rangers' first six games of September, going hitless in 12 at-bats. Scott Heineman will start in left field Monday while White sits for the second straight game, and Texas will likely continue to rely on a combination of the two to man the position until Willie Calhoun (hamstring) is deemed fit to return from the injured list.
