Former Dodgers Prospect DFA’d For the Second Time This Month

The Milwaukee Brewers have designated former Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Mitch White for assignment and recalled Kevin Herget from Triple-A Nashville, the club confirmed Thursday.

White, who was claimed off waivers from the San Francisco Giants on May 10, pitched in six games for Milwaukee, allowing six earned runs in 8.1 innings (6.48 ERA). For White, the Brewers were his third team of 2024, as he also appeared briefly for the Toronto Blue Jays and Giants. He began the season in Toronto and was traded to San Francisco on April 20.

Across 24 big league appearances for the Blue Jays (2022-24), White threw 65.2 innings, with a 7.26 ERA, 4.10 FIP, 27 walks and 50 strikeouts.

Before Toronto acquired him, White showed a lot of promise as a prospect with the Dodgers, then as a rookie starter/long reliever. By 2022, White was regularly starting for the Dodgers and filling in capably as needed, with a 3.47 ERA in the role that year. He started 10 of his 15 appearances with Los Angeles prior to the trade, in which the Dodgers acquired prospects Moises Brito and Nick Frasso for White and Alex De Jesus. Over parts of three seasons (2020-22) with the Dodgers, White posted a 3.58 ERA.

The Blue Jays hoped White would perform for them like he did with the Dodgers but that didn’t happen. He fell apart. Now, the Brewers will have to trade him again, place him on outright waivers, or release him within the next week.
