White missed nearly a month of the season after coming down with covid-19. In 5 games this year, the 27-year-old owns a 4.82 ERA over 9.1 innings pitched. Saturday will be his fifth career start at the big league level. However, he’s not expected to pitch deep into the game. Roberts said on Friday that the expectation for White is about 45 pitches or three innings.
