Tribe takes UNC pitcher White with 15th overall pick

By sstorm Published: June 9, 2009

The Indians selected power right-hander Alex White from the University of North Carolina with the 15th overall pick in the 2009 major league Draft early Tuesday evening.

"He's a power pitcher (who throws) a plus-fastball up to 96 (mph) with heavy life," Indians director of scouting Brad Grant said. "He features two secondary pitches: a split that is a late swing-and-miss type pitch and a slider that is also a swing-and-miss pitch."

The 20-year old is 6-foot-3, 200 pounds and is currently a junior with the Tar Heels, who are currently playing in the Super Regionals en route to the College World Series.
