    Astros minor league pitcher Forrest Whitley has been diagnosed with a lat strain and will miss between three and four months, the club announced today (relayed by Chandler Rome of the Athletic). That timetable puts his 2023 campaign in jeopardy. It’s the latest brutal blow for a player who was once among the sport’s top prospects.…

  • Forrest Whitley Dealing With More Shoulder Issues

    Houston Astros pitching prospect Forrest Whitley (shoulder) left Thursday night's game at Triple-A Sugar Land after feeling some discomfort in his right shoulder. Whitley's velocity was normal (93-96 mph), and he was removed from the contest as a precaution and is currently being evaluated. Given all of the 25-year-old's issues with shoulder injuries in the past, it makes sense for the Astros to be extra cautious. Whitley, the team's No. 19 prospect per MLB Pipeline, ended last year with a shoulder issue and has already missed a couple weeks in 2023 with the same injury, so this isn't good news at all. Once one of Houston's top pitching prospect, Whitley is trending in the wrong direction because of arm injuries, and he currently has a 5.70 ERA with 32 K's and 17 walks in 30 innings for Sugar Land.

  • Forrest Whitley Sent To Minor-League Camp

    The Houston Astros sent right-hander Forrest Whitley to minor-league camp on Sunday. Now ranked as the team's No. 21 prospect, per MLB Pipeline, Whitley's prospect status has faded in recent years due to injuries, struggles in the minors and a suspension. The 25-year-old starter went 0-2 with a 6.53 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 45 strikeouts in 40 innings over 13 outings (11 starts) at three minor-league levels in 2022 while returning from Tommy John surgery. Control has been a big issue for him, but he'll have a good shot to make his major-league debut in 2023 if he stays healthy. He's still young and the upside is there, but those in mixed redraft leagues can ignore him for now.
