Major League Baseball is still in the midst of a lockout, but that hasn’t stopped teams from shaking up their coaching staff or adding players to their minor league ranks. While such deals don’t always lead to positive outcomes later down the road, many teams rely on such moves to add depth to their rosters with the hope of finding a diamond in the rough.
The Milwaukee Brewers may or may not be getting that with a recent move as they signed former Dodger Tyler White to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training, whenever that takes place.

White has spent parts of 4 seasons in the Majors after he debuted in 2016 with the Houston Astros. He then spent a season with Los Angeles back in 2019 after he was traded. He played a total of 12 games for the Boys in Blue where he posted a .045/.192/.045 slash line. After the 2019 season, White was released and went on to play in Korea during the 2020 season. He then spent the 2021 season in the Blue Jays minor league system.
For his career, White has a .236/.315/.724 slash line with 26 home runs and 103 RBI. During that time he has struck out (208) a lot more than he was walked (87). He has found much better success in the minors with a career .303/.407/.911 slash line with 100 home runs and 451 RBI across parts of 7 seasons.
