Dodgers News: Blue Jays Designate Mitch White for Assignment

The Toronto Blue Jays announced Sunday that they have designated Mitch White for assignment in order to make room for incoming RHP Adam Kloffenstein and RHP Sem Robberse, whom they acquired from the St. Louis Cardinals.

White, who was initially drafted by the Dodgers in 2016, held a 7.11 ERA across 12.2 innings pitched this season. The Dodgers dealt White to the Blue Jays in 2022, acquiring RHP Nick Frasso and LHP Moises Brito in the process. Frasso and Brito have yet to make their MLB debuts. Frasso holds a 4.37 ERA across 55.2 innings in Double-A and Brito holds a 1.71 across 31.2 innings in the Dominican Summer League.

White had seen some success while in Los Angeles, holding a 3.70 ERA across 15 appearances in 2022. His luck turned when he began playing for Toronto, holding above a 7.00 ERA in both 2022 and 2023.

Coincidentally, White’s last appearance for the Blue Jays was against the Dodgers. In 0.1 innings, White allowed a hit and an unearned run in a walk-off win for LA.

  1. There are so many things wrong in this article. White was DFA’ed by the Jays to make room for Hicks, after they traded Kloffenstein and Robberse to STL. White also pitched for the Dodgers, not the Angels last year…aren’t you a Dodgers news site?
