Recently DFA’d Ex-Dodgers Top Prospect Traded to Rival Giants

Former Dodgers right-handed pitching prospect Mitch White, who was recently designated for assignment by the Toronto Blue Jays, was traded to the rival San Francisco Giants for cash considerations. White is a Bay Area native, coming from San Jose.

White spent two seasons with the Dodgers, making his debut in August 2020 against the Texas Rangers. He made 14 starts for the Dodgers during his time in Los Angeles, appearing in 38 total games.

The right-hander was seen as a depth piece within their pitching staff for the most part but did show some promise early on. In 2021, he posted an ERA of 3.66 over 21 games played, 46.2 innings of work. He posted an ERA of 3.70 in 15 games played in 2022, working 56 innings before being traded to the Blue Jays.

White was traded to Toronto along with second baseman Alex De Jesus in exchange for pitchers Nick Frasso and Moises Brito. He has spent the last two years with the Blue Jays, appearing in 24 games total for them since the trade. This season, he has posted an ERA of 5.40 over 10 innings.

So far, he hasn’t lived up to his potential but the Giants likely want to give him a chance. For his career, White owns an ERA of 4.99 over 171.1 innings of work. Maybe being in San Francisco will help get his career going, even if Dodgers fans won’t be able to root for him anymore.

  1. Dodgers should have obtained him. They could use another pitcher in the bullpen who can pitch multiple innings and spot start. All he would have to do is to equal his ERA from his days as a Dodger to be worthwhile. And maybe he has an option year, that I do not know.
