White, who went 3-for-4 with two doubles in his Triple-A Tacoma debut Friday, is expected to remain the Rainiers for a limited time following his promotion from High-A Modesto, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
White made quite the jump in level of competition with the promotion, which general manager Jerry Dipoto confirmed was necessitated by Daniel Vogelbach being called up to the big-league club and Cameron Perkins (undisclosed) still on the minor-league disabled list. Still, White didn't exactly look out of place in his first taste of Triple-A action Friday, and Divish confirms a long-term move to the Rainiers is possible after the All-Star break if White continues to play well after returning to the Nuts.
White went 3-for-5 with two runs in High-A Modesto's win over Stockton on Monday.
White now as an 11-game hitting streak during which he's slashing .395/.447/.674 with two doubles, two triples, two home runs, seven RBI, four walks and eight runs. The 22-year-old's average has risen 31 points to .294 over that stretch, and he certainly appears to be acclimating to the jump in competition after having played in the Northwest League during his first season of pro ball in 2017.
White (groin) made his full-season debut Tuesday for High-A Modesto, going 0-for-4 with a walk, a run and a strikeout.
He was slowed out of spring training by a groin injury, but didn't miss much time. It is also news that he was assigned to High-A -- a big jump for the 21-year-old first baseman, who only played in the Northwest League last year after getting drafted by the Mariners in the first round. White is a unique first base prospect, as he is a plus runner with debatable power. If he impresses with his power stroke in the California League, his dynasty league stock will steadily increase this season.
White will be sidelined for one week with a groin strain, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
It's unclear when White picked up the injury, but the Mariners will play it safe with their top prospect. Once healthy, the 21-year-old is expected to report to a full-season league for the first time in his professional career.
White (quadriceps) will start the 2018 season at either Low-A Clinton or High-A Modesto, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
White appeared in just 14 games for short-season Everett in 2017, hitting .277/.345/.532 before a quadriceps injury cut his season short in July. He's expected to be healthy heading into the 2018 campaign, where he'll report to a full-season league for the first time in his professional career as he continues to work his way through the Mariners' minor-league system.
