Blue Jays' Mitch White: Showing good velo early
White sat 94-95 mph with his fastball during his first bullpen session this spring, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.
Blue Jays manager John Schneider described the 29-year-old right-hander as "electric", but a February bullpen session is still a long way from big-league success. White has struggled in the majors since being acquired from the Dodgers in August 2022, stumbling to a 7.60 ERA and 1.74 WHIP in 55.2 innings, but he did finish last year with an impressive run at Triple-A Buffalo that saw him post a 1.89 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 43:14 K:BB over his last 33.1 innings (seven starts). White is out of minor-league options, which would seem to lock him into a long relief spot on the Opening Day roster.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Could have edge on roster spot
White is projected to break camp on the Blue Jays' 26-man roster by Gregor Chisholm of The Toronto Star.
The 29-year-old right-hander has struggled during his time in Toronto after being acquired from the Dodgers in August 2022 and even lost his spot on the 40-man roster for a couple months this offseason, but he's out of minor-league options and the Jays can't afford to lose him on waivers given their lack of rotation depth. Should White open the season in the majors, he would likely be penciled into a long-relief role.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Added back to 40-man roster
The Blue Jays selected White's contract from Triple-A Buffalo on Monday, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.
White lost his spot on the Jays' 40-man roster back in August, but they've now added him back on. The 28-year-old swingman struggled mightily at the big-league level in 2023, posting a 7.11 ERA over 10 appearances.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Outrighted to Triple-A
Toronto outrighted White to Triple-A Buffalo on Friday, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.
White was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays last weekend following the trade for Jordan Hicks. The 28-year-old right-hander had allowed 11 runs -- 10 earned -- through just 12.2 major-league innings this season.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: DFA'd by Toronto
White was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Sunday.
The 28-year-old has a 7.11 ERA over 10 outings for Toronto this season, and he lost his spot on the 26-man and 40-man rosters in order to clear space for trade-acquisition Jordan Hicks. White had a 3.66 ERA across 46.2 innings for the Dodgers in 2021 but has been unable to replicate that form over the past two seasons.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Tagged with loss Tuesday
White (0-1) took the loss Tuesday against the Dodgers, giving up an unearned run in the 10th inning in one-third of an inning.
Erik Swanson's implosion in the ninth sent the game to extra innings, and White couldn't keep Chris Taylor from crossing the plate as the phantom runner in the bottom of the 10th as he served up a walk-off double to James Outman that nearly left the yard in center field. White has a rough 7.11 ERA, 1.74 WHIP and 13:7 K:BB in 12.2 innings since coming off the IL in mid-June, and the only thing keeping him in the big-league bullpen right now might be the fact that he's out of minor-league options....

Blue Jays' Mitch White: Reinstated from IL
White (shoulder) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Friday.
White has been on the shelf all season due to a right shoulder impingement and was pulled off his rehab assignment May 19 because of fatigue in the same shoulder. Now that he's officially off the injured list, he will likely join the Jays' bullpen in a multi-inning relief role. White logged a 7.74 ERA and 1.74 WHIP in 43 innings with Toronto last season....

Blue Jays' Mitch White: Next rehab outing coming Wednesday
White (shoulder) is scheduled to make his next rehab appearance with Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.
White has resided on the Blue Jays' injured list all season while recovering from shoulder trouble and is now in the midst of his second rehab assignment. When he began the initial rehab assignment April 26, White appeared to be building up for a starting role, as he logged no fewer than 2.1 innings in any of his six outings before his 30-day rehab window closed May 27. He was able to restart the assignment last Thursday but has made 1.1-inning and one-inning appearances for Buffalo thus far, with his usage suggesting that the Blue Jays are now preparing for him to work out of the bullpen once he's activated. White has no minor-league options remaining, so the Blue Jays don't have the luxury of having him stay on a starter's schedule in the minors when he's brought back from the IL.... See More ...

Blue Jays' Mitch White: To resume rehab assignment
White (shoulder) will begin a new rehab assignment Saturday with Triple-A Buffalo, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
White was pulled off a previous rehab stint last week due to shoulder fatigue, but it proved to be a minor blip in his recovery from the right elbow injury that has kept him out all year. He'll be stretched out as a starter on his rehab stint, beginning with something close to a 50-pitch outing Saturday for Buffalo.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Resumes throwing
White (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Sunday and is slated to throw another one Wednesday, MLB.com reports.
White has been out all season with an elbow injury but was recently pulled off his rehab assignment because of shoulder fatigue. He'll have to get built back up once he's ready for rehab games again and could be in line for a long-relief role for the Blue Jays once he's activated.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Shifted to 60-day IL
The Blue Jays transferred White (shoulder) to the 60-day injured list Tuesday.
White has been on the injured list since before Opening Day and was pulled off his rehab assignment Thursday due to shoulder fatigue. He resumed throwing Sunday, but White is likely still a couple weeks away from his season debut. His transfer clears a spot for Ernie Clement to join Toronto's 40-man and big-league rosters....

Blue Jays' Mitch White: Pulled off rehab assignment
White (elbow) has been pulled off his rehab assignment due to right shoulder fatigue, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.
White seemingly was close to returning from his elbow injury, but he dealt with a shoulder issue in his last rehab appearance and now will shut things down for a bit. His 30-day rehab window will re-start once the Blue Jays feel he's ready.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Dealing with shoulder issue
White (elbow) experienced shoulder fatigue in his latest rehab outing with Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
White reported to Toronto on Thursday for a visit with the Blue Jays' medical staff. He's been on the injured list all year because of elbow inflammation and is now faced with another delay to his timeline. The 28-year-old right-hander had allowed 14 runs -- 13 earned -- through 17 minor-league rehab innings.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Fifth rehab outing coming Wednesday
Blue Jays manager John Schneider said White (elbow) is scheduled to make another rehab appearance with Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.
After opening the season on the injured list with right elbow inflammation, White was cleared to begin a rehab assignment at Single-A Dunedin on April 26. He made one appearance for the affiliate before moving up to Buffalo, with whom he covered three innings and gave up four runs on four hits and four walks in his most recent outing Friday. White's upcoming appearance Wednesday will be the fifth overall of his rehab assignment, and since the Blue Jays don't have a spot in the big-league rotation available for him at the moment, it wouldn't be surprising if he stuck around in Buffalo until his 30-day rehab window comes to a close May 26....

Blue Jays' Mitch White: Builds up to four innings
White (elbow) struck out seven and allowed one earned run on six hits and one walk across four innings Sunday in his rehab start with Triple-A Buffalo.
Making the third start of his rehab assignment and second in a row with Buffalo, White got stretched out to 67 pitches, throwing 47 of them for strikes. The right-hander looks to be ready for activation from the 15-day injured list, but because Toronto doesn't have an opening for him in the big-league rotation, White will presumably make one more rehab start in order for the Blue Jays to delay a roster move. White doesn't have any minor-league options remaining, so he'll have to remain with the parent club -- either as a starter or long reliever -- whenever he's activated.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Making rehab start Wednesday
White (elbow) will make a rehab start Wednesday for Triple-A Buffalo, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
White will make his second rehab appearance after throwing 3.1 shutout innings for Low-A Dunedin last Wednesday. The right-hander is being built up as a starter as he recovers from elbow inflammation that has sidelined him for the entirety of the 2023 campaign. White is scheduled to throw around 50 pitches Wednesday and should be fully stretched out after another rehab start or two, but he may not have a spot in the Toronto rotation waiting for him by the time he's ready to return from the 15-day injured list. The Blue Jays' top five starting pitchers are all healthy at the moment.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Cleared for rehab assignment
White (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Dunedin on Wednesday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
White missed all of spring training initially with a shoulder injury and then with an elbow issue, so his rehab assignment figures to be a lengthy one. He is out of options, so the righty should join the major-league roster once deemed ready, perhaps in a long-relief role.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Throws live batting practice
White (elbow) threw two innings of live batting practice Saturday at the Blue Jays' spring training complex in Florida, MLB.com reports.
As long as he bounces back with no issues, White will inch closer to beginning a rehab assignment. The right-hander had been slated for a bulk relief role with Toronto when he injured his elbow in late March. White is out of options, so he'll be part of the major-league club in some capacity once deemed ready.... See More ... See Less
