Drafted in the 10th round (294th overall) by the San Diego Padres in 2016 (signed for $30,000)
The Southeastern Conference player of the year, White is one of the best pure hitters in the country. He was hitting .407/.479/.538 in late May and he hit an even better .471/.524/.653 in conference games while setting an SEC record with 54 hits in conference games. But that likely won't be enough to make White a high draft pick. As impressive as White's plus hit tool is, it's also his only plus tool. Scouts struggle to figure out where he will play defensively as a pro--he plays third base at Texas A&M where he's reliable but limited in range and has a well-below-average arm. He's caught earlier in his career, but doesn't project there defensively either. And as impressive as White has been, it's hard not to remember the career track of LSU's Raph Rhymes. Faced with similar position questions, Rhymes hit .431 as a junior but returned to school after being drafted in the 30th round by the Yankees. He signed the next year as a 15th-round pick of the Tigers but never made it out of Class A before being released.
