The Texas Rangers have called up top pitching prospect Owen White according to Ken Rosenthal via Twitter.

White, 24 in August, has been a favorite here at The Prospect Times for a while. He has been effective in Double-A Frisco this season, posting a 2-3 win-loss record with a 3.54 earned run average in 11 starts. He has struck out 45 batters and walked 22 in 53.1 innings.

White is listed at 6-foot-3 and 199-pounds. He is a right-hander who was drafted by the Rangers in the second round of the 2018 MLB Draft. He has been praised for his athleticism, his ability to repeat his delivery, and his command of his fastball and slider.

White is expected to make his major league debut tonight against the Angels. Former RoughRiders teammate Cody Bradford is getting the start and White may come on in relief. He will be the 3rd pitcher to make his major league debut in a Texas Rangers uniform in 2023 behind his former RoughRiders teammates Cody Bradford and Grant Anderson.

White’s call-up makes sense as Jon Gray is dealing with a blister and White is already on the 40-man roster. His call-up is certainly earlier than I expected but White has the mentality to pitch at the Major League Level.

Owen White becomes the 193rd player in RoughRiders history to make their Major League debut.

The team is currently in 1st place in the American League West with their 41-24 record. White will be looking to help them stay there. Congratulations to Owen White from The Prospect Times!
