BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2019  Due to publishing agreements, the 2019 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2019 book (available in hardcopy, and soon e-book and Kindle).
2018 The Dodgers paid 60 percent of slot value to grab White in the second round of 2016 after he'd undergone Tommy John surgery and worked as a reliever in college. His three-pitch mix is not a traditional one for a right-handed starter, but his fastball, cutter and curve all flash plus ceilings. There's a good bit of gap between present and potential, however, as he missed out on almost a third of the season's development again last year. He was in the black for the rest of it, however, holding batters through Double-A to a paltry .172/.271/.229 line. Durability looms as a pressing question, and getting through a full season's workload will be high on the priority list for 2018.
2017 Mitchell White is an athletic, well-built right-hander whose three-pitch mix (led by a cutter) makes him an intriguing starting pitching prospect.

2019-05-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any thoughts on Mitchell White's callup to AAA for the Dodgers? Seems to have rediscovered his stuff this year after having a pretty rough go of it last year due to injuries/inconsistency.
(mevans93308 from California)
Yep, I think you hit it on the head. I think he should be a relief option for the Dodgers at some point this year if they aren't just going to sign Kimbrel which they should. (Craig Goldstein)
2018-11-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)How much has Mitch White's stock fallen?
(Jose from MN)
Velo's been down and he's struggled to stay healthy, which are pretty bad indicators for your pitching prospect. I haven't really started the Dodgers list, but I'd guess he has a shot to sneak onto the back of the Top Ten. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-09-29 12:00:00 (link to chat)Hunter Harvey or Mitchell White?
(rex from oxford)
White has "worse-than-average" pitching prospect durability concerns. Harvey has "thrown 30 innings since 2014." (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2017-03-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)In order of ceiling and anyone who is a fav of yours..thanks P Mitchell White P Oscar DeLaCruz P Jose Albertos P Adonis Medina Big time long term Scoresheet rebuild and these guys are still out there and I have patience and picks to spend on them.
(Accudart from VT)
I think in order of ceiling, I'd go De La Cruz, White, Medina, and Albertos. I like all four as Scoresheet guys, inasmuch as you have three in White, De La Cruz, and Albertos who can develop that high K, low BB profile as starters, and one in Medina whose stuff isn't quite playing up to his stats yet, so he can come at a bargain (in the same pre-hype vein as Sixto Sanchez was a few months ago).

That said, I'm always the one lowest on guys like Medina because I stat sheet scout for strikeouts. You miss out on your Kyle Hendrickses that way, but it usually works for the minors. Meanwhile, Albertos has drool-worthy stats but not a ton of proofing time in pro ball to make me confident, and the same goes to a lesser degree with White. De La Cruz seems like the perfect bet overall because of his nice skillset and the relatively robust minor league career (similar in some ways to Medina). (Trevor Strunk)
2017-03-30 20:00:00 (link to chat)A lot of hype on Mitchell White lately. Any thoughts?
(Oddibe29 from Tempe)
Lots of scouts love him and his velocity has spiked, but he's also only thrown 22 innings as a professional, so we really don't have much of an idea of what he'll become. (Scooter Hotz)
2016-09-12 23:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for doing this Wilson. Figure you'd be a good guy to ask- how are the early returns on the dodgers draft this year?
(smelmoth from The Cape)
So far, so really, really good. Lux has crushed the ball across a couple levels. There's no power there yet, though there could be a bit down the line, and the skill set is broad and impressive. Smith I just wrote up the other day, linked below. Big fan, fits the organizational mold of an athletic catcher with unusual agility and quickness behind the dish. One of the fastest transfers on the pop you'll see, enough raw material with the bat to project decent enough offensive value. I like him a good bit, and I felt similarly about Mitchell White, who looked great over a couple innings when I caught him. Filthy cutter, nice little foundation of a curveball, extremely athletic delivery. Looks like a steal in the 2nd round. Dustin May got some serious and, from the sound of it, well-deserved digital ink on his Swansonian coiffe from Matt Pullman last month, too. And then they paid a couple guys late, including Chris Mathewson out of Long Beach State, who I liked at least for the raw material this spring.
