Blue Jays' Mitch White: Dealing with elbow inflammation
Blue Jays manager John Schneider told reporters Saturday that White is dealing with elbow inflammation, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
It was previously known that White was dealing some a shoulder impingement, but the reason for his absence as of late is elbow trouble. The right-hander is now a lock to start the year on the injured list, and he likely won't be ready to make his debut until the middle of April at the earliest.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Aiming for spring debut next
White (shoulder) touched 94 mph during a two-inning appearance in a minor-league game Wednesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
White threw around 40 pitches in the outing and came out of it with no issues. The hope is that his next appearance will be in a Grapefruit League game, which would be his spring debut. While White is trending in the right direction, a stint on the injured list to begin the season seems likely given how much time he's missed.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Aiming for 45 pitches Wednesday
White (shoulder) is aiming for 45 pitches during Wednesday's minor-league appearance, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
It's a little more clarity after it was announced Monday that White would throw around 50 pitches over three innings. The right-hander has yet to be able to make an appearance during the Grapefruit League because of a right shoulder impingement, but that could change if Wednesday's outing goes well. White isn't expected to begin the season in the Toronto rotation, but he does have a chance to make starts for the Blue Jays before 2023 comes to a close.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Set for minor-league game Wednesday
White (shoulder) will throw around 50 pitches over three innings in a minor-league game Wednesday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
White has yet to appear in a Grapefruit League game this spring because of a right shoulder impingement. That could come after Wednesday's minor-league outing, although at this point White is no longer under serious consideration for the final spot in Toronto's rotation. If healthy, he figures to get a shot eventually.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Will throw again next week
White (shoulder) will throw either a bullpen session or get into a spring game in the middle of next week, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
He threw a live bullpen Thursday and the club is still determining the next step for White. Regardless, it won't be until after Tuesday's off-day that he throws again.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Throws successful side session
White (shoulder) threw a successful side session Monday in Blue Jays camp, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
Blue Jays manager John Schneider told reporters Tuesday that White is "right where he should be" and there are "no red flags" with his health. The 28-year-old has yet to appear in a Grapefruit League game this spring due to an offseason shoulder impingement, but it appears that he will be able to go a couple innings at a time for Toronto by Opening Day....

Blue Jays' Mitch White: Throws live BP
White (shoulder) threw a successful round of live batting practice Friday, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.
Longley writes that White looked "strong" during the live BP, which took place at the Blue Jays' player development complex. With his offseason shoulder impingement now in the rearview, the 28-year-old should soon get into Grapefruit League games as he looks to state a case for the final spot in Toronto's season-opening starting rotation. Yusei Kikuchi is the clear leader in that competition as things stand right now.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Set for live batting practice
White (shoulder) is scheduled to throw live batting practice Friday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
White got through a 43-pitch bullpen session over the weekend and is now ready to take the next step in his spring throwing program. If the live BP workout also goes smoothly, he figures to be cleared to make his Grapefruit League debut early next week. It's looking like that offseason shoulder impingement might prove to just be a blip for the 28-year-old right-hander, who is in the running for the final spot in the Blue Jays' season-opening starting rotation. He could be an option in long relief as well.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: To throw bullpen session
White (shoulder) will throw a 40-pitch bullpen session this weekend, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
If that goes well, he'll progress to live batting practice and eventually games. White has been slowed so far in camp due to a right shoulder impingement which has his status for Opening Day up in the air, but he appears to be moving in the right direction.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Yet to throw off mound
White is still limited to long toss and has yet to throw off a mound as he completes his recovery from a right shoulder impingement, Gregor Chisholm of The Toronto Star reports.
The right-hander said earlier in the week that he felt healthy, but the Blue Jays are still bringing White along slowly to begin spring training. "I think it's kind of day to day right now," Jays manager John Schneider said Saturday. "We're seeing how he responds with each distance that he gets back out to. Today was another step in the right direction. We'll probably have more updates in the next few days but, for him, it's a little bit fluid right now to make sure we're checking every box." Assuming White's return to the mound isn't delayed too much, he'll compete with Yusei Kikuchi for the fifth starter spot in Toronto's rotation.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Recovered from shoulder injury
White revealed Thursday to Keegan Matheson of MLB.com that he suffered a right shoulder impingement over the offseason, though he's currently healthy.
White is thankfully over it by now and believes he can make a strong claim this spring for the No. 5 spot in the Blue Jays' rotation to open the season. Yusei Kikuchi is his primary competition for that role. The odd man out will likely wind up in long relief.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Sent down following matinee
White was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo following the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Orioles.
White served as a bulk reliever during Wednesday's matinee and allowed five runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out four in four innings to take his seventh loss of the year. The right-hander made 25 appearances (18 starts) in the majors this year with the Dodgers and Blue Jays and posted a 5.45 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 99 innings.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Tuesday's start postponed
White won't start as scheduled Tuesday against the Orioles since the game was postponed due to inclement weather, Andy Kostka of The Baltimore Sun reports.
The 27-year-old has given up exactly three runs in each of his past three starts (covering 13.2 innings), and his final start of the regular season will be pushed back. The game will be made up via a doubleheader Wednesday, and White should start one of those contests.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Struggles continue
White did not factor into the decision Wednesday, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks with one strikeout over 3.2 innings against the Yankees.
The Yankees got to White early with a three-run outburst in the first inning, and the 27-year-old never really settled in. He needed 69 pitches to get through 3.2 innings before he was pulled from the game. Over his last six starts dating back to Aug. 26, he has surrendered 27 earned runs over 25.2 innings with a 17:11 K:BB. He owns a 5.21 ERA and 1.44 WHIP through 95 innings split between the Dodgers and the Blue Jays on the season.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Sticks around in rotation
White is scheduled to make his next start Wednesday against the Yankees at Rogers Centre, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Following his call-up from Triple-A Buffalo on Friday, White took the hill later that day against the Rays and took a no-decision in a 10-6 loss while allowing three earned runs on on five hits and one walk over four innings. Nicholson-Smith notes that White is currently slated for a standard start Wednesday, but the Blue Jays could change those plans and deploy him behind an opener depending on what their bullpen situation looks like following Tuesday's contest. Since being acquired from the Dodgers on Aug. 2, White owns an 0-4 record, 7.39 ERA and 1.67 WHIP across 35.1 innings with Toronto.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Called up prior to start
White was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo prior to Friday's start against the Rays.
White made a start at Buffalo on Sunday and allowed eight runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out five in five innings. In spite of his lackluster results, he'll rejoin the major-league club and should have a chance to remain in the rotation, especially if he performs well against the Rays.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Starting Friday
White will be called up from Triple-A Buffalo to start Friday against the Rays, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
The 27-year-old pitched for Buffalo on Sunday and will rejoin the big club to start Friday in Tampa Bay. White had a 3.70 ERA over 56 innings with the Dodgers to begin the season, but he's struggled since being acquired by the Blue Jays with 26 earned runs allowed in 31.1 frames.... See More ...

Blue Jays' Mitch White: Starting Sunday at Triple-A
White, who was returned to Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, will start for the affiliate Sunday before rejoining the Blue Jays for the stretch run, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.
The Jays want White to work on his fastball command and on his changeup, which has shown promise in bullpen sessions. White could join the big-league rotation next weekend in Tampa Bay.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Mitch White: Solid as bulk reliever
White didn't factor into the decision in a 4-2 loss to the Rays during the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader, giving up three runs on seven hits over six innings of relief. He struck out two without walking a batter.
Julian Merryweather got the nod as an opener in the matinee and handed the Rays a 1-0 lead they never relinquished, so what otherwise would have been a quality start for White instead was merely his best performance since he joined the Jays. The right-hander carries a 7.47 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and 24:11 K:BB through 31.1 innings since the trade that brought him to Toronto, but given his relative success in a bulk reliever role, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him get the same assignment the next time his turn through the rotation comes around....

Blue Jays' Mitch White: Will work as 29th man
The Blue Jays recalled White from Triple-A Buffalo and designated him as their 29th man for Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rays.
White was optioned to Triple-A a little less than a week ago, but he's back with the big club for Tuesday's twin bill. According to Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca, reliever Julian Merryweather is scheduled to serve as the Blue Jays' opening pitcher for the first game of the twin bill, so White could be deployed behind Merryweather as a bulk reliever....
