Dodgers News: Tony Gonsolin Optioned to Alternate Site, Mitch White Recalled

After 4 scoreless innings on Friday night, the Cat Man goeth. The Dodgers announced that it had optioned right-handed pitcher Tony Gonsolin to the USC alternate site and recalled RHP Mitchell White.

The 25-year-old White, who appeared in summer camp intrasquad games with the Dodgers, is set to make his MLB debut when he gets into a game. After optioning RHP Josh Sborz on Friday ahead of Gonsolin’s start, the LA bullpen was down one arm. Moreover, with starters still not pitching deep into games, and Clayton Kershaw set to make his season debut on Sunday after a two-week injury layoff, White figures to offer Dave Roberts a long reliever over the next few games.

The San Jose, CA native struggled at triple-A Oklahoma City last year posting a 6.50 ERA in 16 games (13 starts) while battling through injuries and control issues. Altogether, the Dodgers’ number 11 prospect (as ranked by MLB) has a 14-15 record and 3.97 ERA in 294.2 innings pitched across 4 minor league seasons.

The Dodgers currently have 5 rookie arms on their pitching staff
