LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Dodgers have recalled right-handed pitcher Mitch White and optioned right-handed pitcher Tony Gonsolin.

White, 25, joins the Dodgers active roster for the first time in his career after being placed on the 40-man roster on November 20, 2019. The San Jose, CA native has been with the Dodgers four season, across five different levels, posting a 14-15 record with a 3.97 ERA (130 ER/294.2 IP) and 311 strikeouts. Last season, he split the season between Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Oklahoma City, going a combined 4-6 with a 5.09 ERA (53 ER/93.2 IP) and 105 strikeouts. He was originally selected by the Dodgers in the second round of the 2016 First Year Player Draft out of Santa Clara University.

Gonsolin, 26, made the start last night, tossing 4.0 scoreless innings, allowing one hit and striking out one. He did not factor in the decision and is now 4-2 with a 2.66 ERA (13 ER/44.0 IP) and 38 strikeouts in 12 Major League appearances (seven starts). The 2018 Dodgers’ Minor League Pitcher of the Year has been with the organization since being drafted in the ninth round of the 2016 First Year Player Draft out St. Mary’s University. In four minor league seasons, he is a combined 20-14 with a 3.33 ERA (100 ER/270.1 IP) and 315 strikeouts.
