Top Eli White News

  • Rangers' Eli White: On bench Saturday

    White will sit Saturday against the Astros.

    White has emerged as the Rangers' primary left fielder, and his hold on the role seems to have tightened after Nick Solak was optioned Thursday. White will have to improve at the plate to have a truly secure spot, however, as he's hitting just .207/.313/.293 on the year. Brad Miller will be the left fielder Saturday.

  • Rangers' Eli White: Scores on little league homer

    White went 1-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 10-5 win over the Angels.

    White had the signature hit of the Rangers' seven-run eighth inning. After striking out the first four times up, White came up with the bases loaded and singled to left field, and the ball misplayed by Brandon Marsh. That allowed all three baserunners to score, and the speedy White to race around the bases for a "little league" home run. White has started nine of the last 10 games and most notably stole five bases during that run. He's hitting a career-best .250 over 48 at-bats, but that is tempered by a .393 BABIP and a .190 XBA.

  • Rangers' Eli White: Steals base, drives in two

    White went 2-for-5 with two RBI, one run scored and a stolen base in Monday's 7-4 win over the Angels.

    All of White's production came during the Rangers' six-run first inning. He singled, stole second and scored a run before knocking a two-run single in his second at-bat of the inning. He tried stealing another base but was foiled multiple times by foul balls during Marcus Semian's 11-pitch at-bat. White improved his slash line to .256/.373/.372 with eight steals, including five over his last six appearances.

  • Rangers' Eli White: Moves into everyday role

    White will serve as the Rangers' leadoff man and starting left fielder in Monday's game against the Angels.

    White has now handled leadoff duties for three straight games, with the last two of those assignments coming against right-handed pitching. The 27-year-old has mostly handled a short-side platoon role for Texas this season, but he appears to have at least temporarily captured regular at-bats against right-handed pitching at the expense of Nick Solak, who is on the bench for the second straight contest. With a 7-for-7 success rate on stolen-base attempts this season, White looks like he'll be a plus source for steals while he's receiving steady playing time.

  • Rangers' Eli White: Keeps running

    White batted leadoff and went 0-for-3 with a walk, a run scored and two stolen bases in Saturday's 11-3 loss to the Red Sox.

    Leading off for the first time this season, White reached base on a first-inning error by Trevor Story and made Boston's second baseman pay for that transgression. White stole second and third base and came home on Corey Seager's single. It was the fourth steal in the last four games for White, who leads the team with seven swipes over 42 plate appearances. Prior to Saturday's start, White never batted higher than sixth and spent most of his time in the nine hole.

  • Rangers' Eli White: Leads team in steals

    White started in left field and went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Thursday's 3-1 win over Kansas City.

    White started for just the 12th time in 30 games, but he leads the Rangers with five steals over 38 plate appearances. There could more chances coming. Thursday's start was the fifth in the last six games for White, who is often been pinch hit for later in games but has played a full nine innings in the last four contests. The 27-year-old, who has a history of double-digit steals in the minors, typically plays center field against left-handers or spots in at left field when Brad Miller moves to third base.

  • Rangers' Eli White: Walks, steals base

    White went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in a 6-4 win Tuesday over Kansas City.

    White walked and stole second base as part of a double-steal in the sixth inning. He is 4-for-4 on stolen base attempts on the season. After hitting .179/.254/.293 in his first two big-league seasons, the 28-year-old is off to a very good start with a .269/.387/.462 batting line in a part-time role. Despite his success at the plate, he's hit ninth in the order in all of his starts.

  • Rangers' Eli White: Swipes bag, scores in win

    White entered as a pinch runner, stole a base and scored the game-winning run in Wednesday's 2-1 extra-inning win over the Phillies.

    White ran for Mitch Garver in the 10th, and the steal put him in position to score Texas' second run on a Brad Miller single. He opened the season as the fifth outfielder and now is one of six on the team. That means his playing time is limited to spot starts, defensive replacements, and pinch running or hitting. When White does start, he's often replaced midgame by a left-handed hitter. Through 16 games, White has just 22 plate appearances but does have three steals, tied for second on the team.

  • Rangers' Eli White: Starts against RHP

    White started in center field and went 1-for-1 with a walk, a double, a stolen base and two runs scored in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Mariners.

    Texas manager Chris Woodward loaded up the lineup with righty batters against Seattle's left-handed ace Robbie Ray. As such, White manned center field for the third time this season, while Adolis Garcia shifted to right field in place of Kole Calhoun. The stolen base was his second, but it remains to be seen if he can be a healthy contributor in that category as a platoon outfielder against lefties. He showed some speed in the minors -- 59 stolen bases in 444 career games -- but White's opportunities will be minimized in his current role.

  • Rangers' Eli White: Secures roster spot

    White will be on the Rangers' Opening Day roster, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Expectations when White reported to camp were that he wouldn't be ready for Opening Day as he worked his way back from September elbow surgery. He wound up recovering ahead of schedule and earned a spot after posting an .886 OPS in nine spring games. While he's managed to secure a roster spot, he won't necessarily see much playing time, as he's a career .179/.254/.293 hitter in 83 major-league games.

  • Rangers' Eli White: Goes yard Friday

    White went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a second run scored in Friday's spring training game against the Royals.

    White walloped his second Cactus League homer in the first inning, one of three long balls hit by the team in support of starter Dane Dunning. The outfielder has launched home runs in each of his last two spring games and continued to showcase a new swing path. Friday's long ball went opposite field while his first one went out to center field. So far, so good with the new swing.

  • Rangers' Eli White: Homers Tuesday

    White (elbow) went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's spring training game against the Diamondbacks.

    White served as the designated hitter for the second time this spring, as the elbow injury is preventing him from lining up in the field at this time. He drove a curveball from Madison Bumgarner over the fence in center field, showing off the new swing that's been the early talk in camp, per Levi Weaver of The Athletic. Texas hitting coach Donnie Eckler has been impressed, though he said it's too early to tell if White's offseason swing-path adjustments have "stuck."

  • Rangers' Eli White: Playing outfield Friday

    White (elbow) is scheduled to play the outfield in Friday's Cactus League game, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

    White has been seeing action as the designated hitter and is now set to see his first time in the outfield this spring. The 27-year-old is returning from elbow surgery in September and wasn't expected to be ready for Opening Day at the start of camp, but his ability to play the outfield could signal he'll receive full clearance sooner rather than later.

  • Rangers' Eli White: Shows off new swing

    White (elbow) went 0-for-2 with a walk and a run scored in Friday's spring game against the Royals.

    White served as the designated hitter and will likely continue to do so, as he strengthens the elbow for throwing. The game action was a chance for the righty hitter to unveil his new swing, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports. "I'm trying to stay through the ball more and not so much rotational like around the ball," White said. The goal is reduce the frequency of batted balls that are pulled and direct more hits to center and right field. A one-time prospect, the 27-year-old White hasn't done much against big-league pitching since making his debut in 2020, owing a career .179/.254/.293 slash line. He is not expected to be ready for Opening Day.

  • Rangers' Eli White: Hitting in spring game

    White (elbow) will serve as the designated hitter for Friday's spring game against the Royals.

    White underwent elbow surgery in September and isn't expected to be ready for Opening Day. He's been able to hit in batting practice, however, and he's apparently also able to hit in games, but it will still be some time before he's ready to handle a defensive assignment.

  • Rangers' Eli White: Not expected for Opening Day

    White is not expected to be ready for Opening Day due to the elbow surgery that ended his 2021 season early, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports.

    White underwent surgery in September, and his rehab progressed well during the lockout. He recently started throwing to bases March 14 and appears to be back sooner than expected. Landry's report targets a late April return for the outfielder, but the takeaway should be that he could be rostered in the majors when he returns. White should be in the mix to start in left field once back to full health

  • Rangers' Eli White: Puts on show in batting practice

    White (elbow) hit three home runs during his batting practice session Monday at the Rangers' spring camp, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports.

    White never displayed much power over parts of two seasons in the majors and none of his stops in the minors, so the home-run display in batting practice can probably be taken with a grain of salt. More importantly, however, White looks to be healthy again after his 2021 season came to an end in early August, when he suffered a right elbow strain that later required an internal brace surgery. The 27-year-old will likely be competing for a utility role on the Rangers' Opening Day roster.

  • Rangers' Eli White: Shifts to 60-day injured list

    White (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Tuesday.

    White underwent season-ending elbow surgery earlier this month, so his move to the 60-day IL comes as no surprise. The outfielder had some nice moments in 64 games with the Rangers but ultimately finished his season with an underwhelming .177/.259/.308 slash line to go along with six homers, six doubles, one triple and four stolen bases. Nonetheless, he should have a strong chance to compete for a spot in the Texas outfield when he returns next spring.

  • Rangers' Eli White: Undergoes surgery

    White recently underwent UCL internal brace surgery on his right elbow and is facing a six-month recovery timeline, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    White has been on the injured list since Aug. 5 due to a right elbow strain, and he'll miss the remainder of the season following his procedure. However, the Rangers are hopeful that the 27-year-old will be cleared to return late in spring training in 2022. White appeared in 64 games during the 2021 campaign and slashed .177/.259/.308 with six homers, 26 runs, 15 RBI and four stolen bases.

  • Rangers' Eli White: Begins throwing program

    White (elbow) began a throwing program Saturday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    White has been out with a strained right elbow since early August. He's now taking steps toward a return to action, but it remains unclear when the Rangers expect him to return to the team.
