Top Owen White News

  • Rangers' Owen White: Throws in minor-league game

    White (neck) threw one inning in a spring game for Double-A Frisco on Sunday, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

    This was White's first outing since late February, when he was shut down with neck tightness. It was similar to the injury he suffered last season, which was initially thought of as a forearm injury but turned out to be nerve inflammation in the neck that traveled down his arm. The Rangers expect White to be ready for the start of the minor-league season.

  • Rangers' Owen White: Injury similar to last year

    White (neck) said Thursday that the injury he's dealing with is similar to the one which cost him most of the second half last season at Double-A Frisco, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    The injury he dealt with last year was described as forearm fatigue at the time. More specifically, though, White has nerve inflammation in his neck which causes pain to radiate down his arm. It sounds like he and the Rangers are trying to find a clearer diagnosis before they determine the best course of treatment. In the meantime, White will be shut down from throwing. The 23-year-old right-hander was a 2018 draft pick but has been limited to just 115 innings in pro ball due to injuries.

  • Rangers' Owen White: Sidelined with neck tightness

    Rangers general manager Chris Young said Wednesday that White is dealing with tightness in the right side of his neck and will be held out of action for the next couple of days, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

    White is one of the top prospects in the Texas system, and the Rangers won't take any unnecessary risks with the 23-year-old right-hander while he's less than 100 percent healthy. After posting a 104:23 K:BB and 3.59 ERA in his 80.1 innings between High-A Hickory and Double-A Frisco in 2022, White is projected to open the upcoming season with Triple-A Round Rock. He could make starts with the Rangers by the time 2023 comes to a close.

  • Rangers' Owen White: Joins 40-man roster

    White was added to the Rangers' 40-man roster Tuesday.

    One of the Rangers' best pitching prospects, White was great at High-A and Double-A last season before forearm fatigue shelved him for most of the second half. If White can stay healthy and handle a starter's workload (career-high 80.1 innings last season), he could be a mid-rotation starter.

  • Rangers' Owen White: Reinstated from injured list

    White (forearm) was reinstated from the 7-day injured list at Double-A Frisco on Thursday, Kennedi Landry of reports.

    White landed on the injured list with forearm fatigue in late July, and he'll be eligible to pitch in Thursday's playoff game at Frisco. Although the right-hander was unavailable for the final few months of the minor-league regular season, he should be able to have a normal offseason program once the playoffs wrap up.

  • Rangers' Owen White: Lands on injured list

    White was placed on the injured list with forearm fatigue Tuesday, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

    White has posted a 2.49 ERA and 1.13 WHIP since being promoted to Double-A Frisco in late June, but his season will be put on pause as a result of his injury. The Rangers are hoping he will recover with rest, and he is expected to resume throwing in 7-to-10 days.

  • Rangers' Owen White: Makes Cactus League debut

    White allowed one hit and struck out one over two scoreless innings in Saturday's spring training game against Cleveland.

    White, a highly regarded prospect drafted in the second round of the 2018 draft, made his Cactus League debut for the Rangers. He set down the side on eight pitches in his first inning, including a three-pitch strikeout, then worked around a single in his second frame. Tommy John elbow surgery and the canceled 2020 minor-league season set back White's development. He's expected to open the season at High-A Hickory and could move up a level at some point.

  • Rangers' Owen White: Returns to action at Low-A

    White (hand) has made two starts for Low-A Down East since being reinstated from the 7-day injured list Aug. 10, working 4.1 innings and striking out seven while giving up one earned run on four hits and three walks between the outings.

    White was on the IL for nearly three months with a fractured bone in his hand. Since joining the Rangers as a second-round pick in the 2018 first-year player draft, White has tossed only 6.2 innings in affiliated ball after spending most of 2019 and 2020 recovering from Tommy John surgery.

  • Rangers' Owen White: Out with fractured hand

    White will be sidelined until at least mid-June due to a fractured bone in his hand, Adam J. Morris of reports. Low-A Down East placed White on the 7-day injured list Saturday.

    The injury is yet another unfortunate setback for White, whom the Rangers selected out of high school with the No. 55 overall pick in the 2018 first-year player draft. After the Rangers chose to delay his professional debut in 2018, White's 2019 campaign was wiped out by Tommy John surgery, while the COVID-19 pandemic prevented him from pitching in 2020. The 21-year-old finally got the chance to debut last week with Down East, only to pick up a new injury that will keep him on the shelf for at least a month.
