24-Year-Old First Baseman1B
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Quality first base prospects are a rarity these days, and White checks a lot of important boxes. A good athlete and plus defender (bats right, throws left), he could skip Triple-A and open the year in the majors after agreeing to a six-year, $24 million contract (with three club options) this offseason. He was 32% better than the average Texas League hitter and was even better after a slow start, hitting .313/.352/.548 with 17 home runs in 66 games from June on. His 36.7 Hard% is appropriate for a 23-year-old first baseman, and his type of contact (23.0 LD%, 42.4 GB%) fits the modern game. He may be susceptible to shifts (46.9 Pull%), but that is true of most first basemen. White has been clocked as a plus runner but has not put that speed to work on the bases with any consistency. Seattle will give him every opportunity to win the starting job this spring, as there are no service-time games to play. Read Past Outlooks
