White was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a right trap strain.
White was acquired from Houston on July 25 and has gone 1-for-22 in 12 games since the trade. In a corresponding move, Kyle Garlick was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City.
White was traded from the Astros to the Dodgers on Thursday for Andre Scrubb, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
White has found a new home after being designated for assignment by the Astros last week. The 28-year-old, who owns a lackluster .225/.320/.330 triple slash through 71 games this season, should serve as infield depth for the Dodgers while Chris Taylor (forearm) and Enrique Hernandez (hand) nurse injuries.
White was designated for assignment following Friday's game, David Barron of the Houston Chronicle reports.
White was replaced on the roster by right-handed pitcher Jose Urquidy, who was called up from Triple-A Round Rock to start Saturday's game against the Rangers. Close followers of the Astros may not be surprised by this move as White is hitting just .225 with a career-high 29.2 K% over 218 at-bats. Houston has seven days to trade White or expose him to waivers. If he goes unclaimed, White will be assigned to one of team's minor-league affiliates or be released.
White went 3-for-5 with two RBI in a loss to the Angels on Tuesday.
White plated both Astros runs in the game, knocking in runners with singles in the fourth and fifth innings. The three-hit game was the second in July for White, who entered the month barely above the Mendoza Line at .206. By going 10-for-32 (.313) in July, the 28-year-old has lifted his overall slash line to .227/.322/.336 with three homers, 20 runs batted in and 72 strikeouts in 211 at-bats.
White isn't in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Angels, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
White will head to the bench for the second consecutive day after also receiving Sunday off. Yuli Gurriel is starting at first base and will bat fifth with White out of the mix.
White is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
With Yuli Gurriel covering White's usual post at first base in the series finale, Alex Bregman will shift to third base while Myles Straw enters the lineup at shortstop. White, who started in each of the Astros' last five games, should hold down a quasi-everyday role until Carlos Correa (ribs) likely returns from the 60-day injured list in a little under two weeks.
White went 3-for-6 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 11-10 win over the Angels.
White finished up what has been a miserable first half with a three-game hitting streak, going 6-for-14 during that stretch. Infield adjustments to cover for the injured Carlos Correa (ribs) have presented him with starting opportunities at first base, but White's been unable to shake the season-long slump that had him hitting .211 before his mini run to close out the first half. With Correa expected to return following the All-Star break, White will get reduced at-bats, and his roster spot could be in jeopardy if the Astros decide to add a bat before the trade deadline.
White started at first base in place of the injured Yuli Gurriel (ankle) on Sunday. He went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in a 6-1 win over Seattle.
Gurriel's injury is not considered serious and, with an off day Monday, he could rejoin the starting nine Tuesday in Colorado. White has not hit safely over his last 15 at-bats and is batting just .212.
White is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Pirates, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
White will head to the bench after a string of 14 consecutive starts, during which he maintained an .875 OPS. Though the Astros have reclaimed some health recently with Jose Altuve and George Springer returning from multi-week absences, White should be in line for at least semi-regular work in the infield until Carlos Correa (ribs) likely returns at some point shortly after the All-Star break.
White went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in Sunday's win over the Yankees.
White busted the game open with his fourth-inning home run off of J.A. Happ, putting the Astros up 6-0. The long ball was just his third through 55 games this season, however, and the 28-year-old could be in danger of moving to the bench once the Astros get healthier given his unremarkable .229/.342/.355 slash line on the year.
White will start at first base and bat sixth Wednesday against the Reds, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
White was expected to be one of the playing-time losers after top prospect Yordan Alvarez was promoted to the big leagues June 9, but the 28-year-old will surprisingly pick up his eighth consecutive start at first base while Yuli Gurriel shifts across the diamond. To his credit, White has warranted the regular role lately with a 1.119 OPS over the preceding seven games, but he could be in danger of moving to the bench as soon as his production slows down. It doesn't help White's case that the Astros brought back an everyday player in Jose Altuve (hamstring) from the injured list Wednesday, with another in George Springer (hamstring) likely to be reinstated next week.
White went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 10-8 win over the Brewers.
White hit just his second home run of the season. As the Astros roll out a lineup missing a third of its prime hitters due to injury, White has not filled the gap. He has just eight extra-base hits over 44 games and is slugging .315, the lowest mark among Houston's regulars.
White is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
White had started three straight games before moving to the bench for Saturday's 4-1 loss. With the Astros promoting top prospect Yordan Alvarez from Triple-A Round Rock and inserting him into the lineup at designated hitter Sunday in his MLB debut, White's chances of resurfacing as a regular player for Houston will only become more difficult.
White is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Athletics, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
He'll retreat to the bench for a second straight game while Michael Brantley serves as the Astros' designated hitter. With the likes of Carlos Correa (ribs), Jose Altuve (hamstring), George Springer (hamstring) and Aledmys Diaz (hamstring) all on the injured list, White's path to everyday at-bats was thought to be secure, but that's apparently not going to be the case. Until White begins to display more power -- he's delivered just seven extra-base hits (six doubles, one homer) in 128 plate appearances -- the Astros may continue to rotate a number of players at DH.
White started at first base and went 1-for-4 with a double in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Cubs.
The Astros shuffled their lineup once again Wednesday in response to a number of injuries. Yuli Gurriel moved across the diamond to third base while Alex Bregman covered shortstop for the injured Carlos Correa (ribs). Jose Altuve (hamstring) and Aledmys Diaz (hamstring) are also sidelined on the injured list, creating a situation that could lead to more consistent at-bats for White, who has started three straight games. He's batting .220/.304/.303, and his extra-base hit Wednesday was just his seventh in 109 at-bats.
White is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
White acted as Houston's designated hitter for the first two games of the series, going 2-for-7 with a walk and an RBI. Manager AJ Hinch will rotate Michael Brantley in at DH for the matinee game Sunday, but White should still be in store for a near-everyday role following George Springer's (hamstring) recent move to the injured list.
White went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 3-0 win over the White Sox.
White launched his first home run in 30 games. That's shocking for a player who hit 26 bombs in 136 games between Triple-A and MLB in 2018. His .649 OPS is one reason why he hasn't been given consistent at-bats. White has been in the starting lineup the last three games due to injuries. If Aledmys Diaz (hamstring) returns Tuesday as expected, White may move back to the bench.
White is not starting Friday against the Red Sox, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
White remains the player most commonly filling the designated hitter spot in Houston, but he's far from a true starter, as the Astros like to use that spot to rest the legs of their other regulars. White has started just 20 of 45 games so far this season. George Springer fills his spot Friday, with Jake Marisnick starting in center field.
Manager AJ Hinch said White's playing time will become "a little more sporadic" moving forward, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
White has started seven of the Astros' 13 games to begin May, though he's gone just 5-for-28 (.179) with a 37.5 percent strikeout rate during that stretch. As such, Hinch suggested that the 28-year-old could concede starts to other position players for the time being while he works out of his slump. Michael Brantley is starting at DH in place of White on Wednesday.
White is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Tigers, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
White is hitting just .179/.250/.250 in nine games this month, so he'll take a seat for Wednesday's series finale to clear his head. In his place, Michael Brantley is starting at DH, with Jake Marisnick getting a start in the outfield.
