A little bit of offseason news out of Los Angeles this afternoon as the Dodgers added three prospects to their 40-man roster, filling up every available spot.
Right-handed pitcher and LA’s No. 9 prospect Mitchell White, outfielder and No. 12 prospect DJ Peters and utility player Zach McKinstry are all clear from getting pulled by another team on Dec. 12 during the Rule 5 Draft.
White, 24, found a promotion during the 2019 season from Double-A Tulsa to Triple-A Oklahoma City. He pitched a combined 23 games, with 20 starts and finished with a 4-9 record and a 5.09 ERA. It wasn’t smooth sailing for him in Oklahoma City, though, with a 6.50 ERA in 63 2⁄3 innings. This move, however, shows the Dodgers organization likely has trust he can eventually end up as an end-of-rotation option.
Peters, a 23-year-old outfielder from Glendora, Calif., spent the last half of the season in Triple-A and had a decent overall season. He hit .249/.358/.453 in 125 games and crushed 23 home runs.
McKinstry is not on the Dodgers’ top 30…
