New York Mets Acquire First Baseman From Minnesota Twins

The New York Mets have recently made an acquisition, reportedly adding first baseman Tyler White to their roster.

The Mets acquired White from the Minnesota Twins in exchange for cash considerations, seeing him as valuable organizational depth. While White has not played in the major leagues since the 2019 season, he has been showcasing his skills at the Triple-A level.

At 32 years old, Tyler White has been making an impact in Triple-A, exhibiting a .259 batting average, .386 on-base percentage, and .414 slugging percentage in 70 plate appearances over 16 games this season.

Despite his absence from the big leagues, White's performance has caught the attention of the Mets, leading to his acquisition.

White initially gained recognition when he entered the MLB with the Houston Astros, impressing with his early performances. However, he has since faced limited opportunities at the highest level of baseball.

With the Mets, White will have a chance to prove himself once again, as the team has decided to option him to their Triple-A affiliate, the Syracuse Mets.

Over his four-year career in the MLB, White has posted a .236/.315/.409 triple-slash line, with 26 home runs, 103 RBIs, and 76 runs scored across 256 games played.
