Like Washington's Brian Pearl, White is another third baseman that found success in short stints after moving to the mound. White came to New Mexico via Paris (Texas) JC, where he was a 30th-round selection by the Cubs last year. His fastball was consistently between 92-93 mph this spring, but he touched 95 on multiple occasions. White--who also co-wrote a song submitted for Grammy consideration--has improved his control throughout the year, but needs to clean up the moving parts in his delivery to continue that refinement. His 83-84 mph slider is a little flat at this point, mostly sweeping across the plate and not getting the two-plane break scouts look for. As a reliever in New Mexico, he's been a tough player to crosscheck, which could affect where he goes in the draft. He'll likely join a minor league starting rotation to get more experience, but profiles as a reliever.
