Blue Jays recall right-hander Mitch White ahead of debut vs. Twins

Hazel Mae chats with the newest Blue Jay Mitch White about what he brings to the team, the challenges of taking on a variety of roles this season, and his family's influence on his life.

The Toronto Blue Jays have officially recalled right-hander Mitch White from triple-A Buffalo, and he will be active for Saturday's game against the Minnesota Twins.

Trent Thornton was optioned to Buffalo in a corresponding move.

White will make his debut for the Blue Jays as pitching coach Pete Walker confirmed on Friday.

The 27-year-old was acquired by the Blue Jays from the Los Angeles Dodgers along with Alex De Jesus in exchange for Nick Frasso and Moises Brito.

White is sporting a 1-2 record with a 3.70 ERA and 1.250 WHIP in 56 innings of work this season.

The Blue Jays needed a starter for Saturday after Ross Stripling was placed on the 15-day injured list with a glute/hip strain earlier this week.

White hasn't pitched since July 26 when he gave up two runs on nine hits in six innings in a no-decision against the Washington Nationals.
