By a considerable margin, the 6-foot-6 White posted the best strikeout-to-innings ratio in college baseball this spring, fanning 136 batters in 77 innings--or 15.8 per nine innings. He struggled with command and walked 70. He has legitimate stuff--a 94 mph fastball and 82 mph curve--and on the rare days he threw strikes, he was almost unhittable. White's biggest downside is his makeup. His reputation for yelling at coaches, teammates and umpires to vent his anger and frustration became the talk of scouts throughout the area.
