Drafted in the 11th round (322nd overall) by the Oakland Athletics in 2016 (signed for $100,000)
White has long drawn rave reviews for his athleticism, speed and actions at shortstop. The Reds drafted him in the 26th round out of high school and a 37th-rounder last year (Pirates) as an eligible sophomore. Where White has struggled to make an impact is with the bat. He's light on power and hasn't made consistent contact in his college career, and scouts are skeptical he'll be able to hit enough to be an everyday option at the pro level. Still, in a thin college shortstop class, White will get a look. He needs some polish--he made 22 errors this spring--but has the skill set to stick at the position.
