YearComment
2011 Sean White wasn’t even the best pitcher with a Sean-sounding name in the Seattle bullpen, as he posted abysmal peripherals almost identical to 2009’s, but this time without the cooperative BABIP. The damage was limited only by two trips to Tacoma and a sore forearm that kept him out of action for the season’s final month.
2010 Fantastic luck on balls in play in 2009—a .229 BABIP and just .198 against lefties—belied a performance that was decidedly not major-league quality. White has trouble striking hitters out and doesn't command the strike zone well enough to be effective. Although the Mariners’ defense benefited all pitchers, White’s performance relies far too much on low BABIP to be anything but a fluke. Expect a significant regression for 2010.
2009 Sean White, a local kid from Mercer Island, has been plagued by injuries since he joined the Mariners as a Rule 5 pick in 2007. His ground ball rate has fallen well off its peak, and as a result, White himself has fallen off the 40-man roster.
2008 Sean White is a local product, which is probably what got the Mariners interested enough to take a Rule 5 flier on him prior to last season, even though he was neither particularly young nor particularly accomplished. His low-90s two-seam fastball has given White strong ground-ball rates in the minors, but all of his other indicators are pretty bad. Having served his season on the 25-man roster (half of it on the DL with biceps tendonitis), he'll be fighting for a spot this year. If he makes the team, he probably won't be the best right-handed sinker-balling reliever named Sean with a colorful, five-letter last name on the staff.
