Sean White promoted to Mississippi

The Braves continue to move players in their farm system. Late Wednesday night they promoted right-hander Sean White to AA Mississippi. BravesCenter's Bill Shanks has the details.

The Atlanta Braves have promoted Myrtle Beach right-handed pitcher Sean White to AA Mississippi. He will report Thursday and should get his first start next week.

White finished his career with the Pelicans Wednesday night with a solid outing, picking up his ninth win. White allowed only two hits on six hits in five innings of work, three walks, and five strikeouts.

The 24-year-old was 9-3 this season in the Carolina League with a 3.71 ERA in 18 games started. He allowed 112 hits in 97 hits, 46 runs, 40 earned runs, 29 walks, and 65 walks.

White was an 8th round pick by the Braves in the 2003 draft out of the University of Washington. He split 2004 between Rome and Myrtle Beach, going 3-2 mostly in relief in Low-A and then 6-6 with a 3.60 ERA in 18 games (10 starts) with the Pelicans.

Mississippi's rotation has been short-staffed since Matt Wright went on the Disabled List two weeks ago. White will now join Chuck James, Matt Coenen, Brian O'Connor, and Ryan Basner in manager Brian Snitker's rotation.

BravesCenter's Bill Shanks has a new book out on baseball scouting and player development. "Scout's Honor: The Bravest Way To Build A Winning Team" is at Barnes and Noble bookstores and online at Bill can be reached at Recommended Stories
