MLB News: Reinforce outfield! Braves buy Rangers an outfielder who is excellent defensive

The The Atlanta Braves announced that they have acquired outfielder Eli White from the Texas exchange for cash. The Korean Infielder, Hoy Park, was designated for assignment to clear a spot on the 40-man roster. Texas had DFA on White last week.

The 6-foot-1 Elijah Thomas White played a sporadic role over the next several seasons, playing in 130 games. He owns a .185/.260/.295 line over that stretch, hitting nine home runs but striking out at a massive 31.6% rate.

While While hasn’t hit much at the MLB level, he has shown flashes in other areas. He has stolen 17 bases in 22 attempts in his career, including a 12-of-13 success rate this year. The Clemson product has shown that athleticism on defense, with Defensive Runs Saved tying him with 11 above-average runs through 890 career innings of fielding.

He is rated nine runs better than par by Statcast’s Outs Above Average, with most of his time in left-center field. White’s 2022 season was cut short in June when he broke his right wrist in an outfield crash. The injury required surgery, but there is no indication that he will have any lingering effects on his preparation for 2023.

I am a fan of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover big events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), important players’ signatures. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as an amateur. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but baseball is in my veins. Graduated in Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS). , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I arrived at El Debate as a journalist reporter and it took almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to radio, providing my services at Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and a few days later, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
