Tigers' Brendan White: Nearing bullpen session
White (elbow) will play catch this weekend and is scheduled for a bullpen session early next week, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.
The right-hander was shut down from throwing for a few days early this week due to posterior right elbow discomfort, but his quick return is an encouraging development. White made his MLB debut last season and posted a 5.09 ERA and 44:15 K:BB over 40.2 innings, and he should have a chance to earn a spot in Detroit's Opening Day bullpen.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Brendan White: Dealing with sore elbow
The Tigers announced Monday that White is dealing with posterior right elbow discomfort and will complete a short period of rest before restarting his throwing program, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.
Though the Tigers seem optimistic that White's elbow soreness will be remedied by a few days of rest, the missed time during camp certainly isn't ideal for a reliever who is far from a lock to win a spot on Detroit's Opening Day roster. As a rookie in 2023, White made 33 appearances (two starts) for the big club, pitching to a 5.09 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 44:15 K:BB in 40.2 innings.... See More ... See Less

Tigers' Brendan White: Back with big club

White will start on the mound for the Tigers on Saturday against Colorado, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Saturday will mark the first start of White's MLB career -- and his first start at any level since 2021 with High-A West Michigan. The 24-year-old righty holds a 5.23 ERA and 1.16 WHIP on the season through 10.1 innings, and he will likely only remain on the mound for an inning or two Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Brendan White: Earns first MLB win Sunday
White (1-0) tossed two scoreless innings of relief in Sunday's game against the Twins to earn the win. He struck out three.
White helped the Tigers cobble through the middle innings of a bullpen game, and his strong performance was enough for his first MLB win in three games. The 24-year-old has now logged a 1.69 ERA and 0.56 WHIP across 5.1 innings for Detroit this year. He could bounce between Triple-A Toledo and the majors moving forward, though he may be able to stick with the Tigers if he continues to pitch well.... See More ... See Less

Tigers' Brendan White: Back in Triple-A
The Tigers returned White to Triple-A Toledo after Wednesday's doubleheader against the Mets.
Detroit chose not to use White out of the bullpen in either of Wednesday's games, so he will have to wait a bit longer for his first major-league appearance. However, the 24-year-old reliever holds a 2.08 ERA and 1.23 WHIP across 13 innings over nine appearances in Toledo, so it may not be long before he gets another chance on the big-league roster....

Tigers' Brendan White: Called up as 27th man
White was called up from Triple-A Toledo ahead of the Tigers' doubleheader with the Mets on Wednesday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.
White will serve as an additional bullpen arm Wednesday, operating as Detroit's 27th man on the roster. The right-hander has produced a 2.08 ERA and 1.23 WHIP with 14 strikeouts over 13 innings in nine appearances with Toledo this season. White will likely be returned to Triple-A following Wednesday's action, though his minor-league numbers may warrant a longer look at the big-league level down the road.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Brendan White: Sent down to Triple-A
White was optioned to Triple-A Toledo by the Tigers on Tuesday.

Tigers' Brendan White: May make MLB debut in 2023
White is a strong candidate to make his MLB debut later this season, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
White recorded a 2.67 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 73:17 K:BB across 67.1 innings with Double-A Erie last year, and the Tigers moved him onto the 40-man roster in November to protect him from the Rule 5 draft. The righty could make the jump to Triple-A this year and possibly make his MLB debut if he pitches well. White has shown an effective slider as a reliever and closed out nine games for Erie in 2022, though he likely wouldn't have a high-leverage role initially in the majors.... See More ... See Less
