Mets' Tyler White: Traded to NYM
The Mets acquired White from the Twins on Tuesday and optioned him to Triple-A Syracuse, Pat Ragazzo of SI.com reports.
White showed encouraging flashes several years ago when he first arrived on the MLB scene with the Astros, but he hasn't played in a game at baseball's highest level since 2019. The 32-year-old was batting .259/.386/.414 with two home runs through 70 plate appearances this season with the Triple-A affiliate of the Twins.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Tyler White: Reassigned to minor-league camp
White was reassigned Thursday to the minor-league side of Twins camp, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
White landed a non-roster invite to Twins camp over the winter, but he never stood much of a chance of cracking the Opening Day squad. The 32-year-old hasn't appeared in a major-league game since 2019, when he had a .612 OPS in 83 contests.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Tyler White: Signs minor-league deal with Twins
White signed a minor-league contract with Minnesota on Monday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.
White showed promise with an .888 OPS in 66 games for the Astros in 2018, but he followed that up with a .612 OPS in 83 games the next year and hasn't returned to the majors since. Now 32 years old and coming off a year in which he hit a modest .230/.357/.412 at the Triple-A level, he has an outside shot at best of breaking camp with the team.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Tyler White: Shipped to Atlanta
Atlanta acquired White from Milwaukee on Tuesday in exchange for cash.
The 31-year-old White had produced at an above-league-average level for Triple-A Nashville this season (.788 OPS, 113 wRC+), but the Brewers were presumably keen on opening up playing time at their top minor-league affiliate for younger players. White will fill a similar organizational depth role for Atlanta, with any potential call-up to the majors likely to hinge on the team losing any of its first-base or designated-hitter options to injuries over the final six weeks of the season....

Brewers' Tyler White: Heads to MiLB camp
The Brewers reassigned White to their minor-league camp Monday.
White has logged 859 career plate appearances at the MLB level between stops with the Astros and Dodgers, but he hasn't surfaced in the majors since 2019. After a one-year stint in South Korea in 2020, White returned stateside in 2021 and spent the entire campaign with the Blue Jays' Triple-A affiliate in Buffalo. He's expected to head to Triple-A Nashville with his new organization for the start of the 2022 season.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Tyler White: Reaches deal with Brewers
White signed a minor-league contract with the Brewers on Thursday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
White served as a non-roster invitee with the Blue Jays in 2021 but spent the entire season at Triple-A Buffalo. He slashed .292/.424/.476 with 13 home runs, 65 RBI and 54 runs across 105 games. The 31-year-old hasn't appeared in the majors since 2019 but will be invited to the Brewers' big-league camp in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Tyler White: Won't win roster spot
White was assigned to minor-league camp Saturday.
As a non-roster invitee, White was always a long shot to break camp on the big-league roster. His .074/.103/.111 spring slash line certainly didn't help his case. He could push for a bench role later this season if he sorts things out in the minors although he doesn't have a path to regular playing time.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Tyler White: Making first start this spring
White is in the lineup for Saturday's spring game, according to Hazel Mae of Sportsnet.
White has been limited to pinch-hit duty up to this point, but he is set to start Saturday's game at first base. After spending last season in the KBO, White is competing for a spot on the Blue Jays' roster this spring.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Tyler White: Not yet at camp
White has yet to report to camp due to the inclement weather in Texas, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.
White is trying to get back to the big-league level following a brief stint with the KBO's SK Wyverns, with whom grabbed just three hits in nine games before fracturing his finger. The delay certainly isn't helping his case, but he could still have enough time to try to win a job if he's able to arrive soon.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Tyler White: Joins Blue Jays on minors deal
White signed with the Blue Jays as a non-roster invitee Tuesday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
White has had brief periods of success at the big-league level, but his overall .236/.315/.409 slash line in 859 MLB plate appearances isn't good enough for a first baseman. He's now 30 years old and is coming off a season in which his only game action came in a nine-game stint for the KBO's SK Wyverns. He hit just .136/.367/.318 in those games before fracturing a finger, ending his season prematurely.... See More ... See Less
Tyler White: Heads to Korea
White signed a contract with the SK Wyverns of the KBO on Wednesday, Daniel Kim of MBC Sports+ reports.
White had been with the Dodgers in spring training but was not included in the team's 60-man player pool, so he'll head to South Korea in search of at-bats. White has produced a roughly league-average 98 wRC+ in 257 career MLB games, so it's not out of the question he unlocks something overseas given everyday at-bats. However,he's already 29 years old, so his odds of making a big-league comeback aren't particularly high.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Tyler White: Outrighted, back at camp
White was re-invited to camp after being outrighted off the Dodgers' 40-man roster Monday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
White, who was designated for assignment last week, will remain with the Dodgers after passing through waivers untouched. While the 29-year-old will be in camp, he's unlikely to crack the Opening Day roster given his non-roster status.... See More ... See Less
