Tyler White is the Fresno Grizzlies’ Mr. Versatility.

So far in the 2017 season, White has played all four infield positions. He even mopped up in relief in a lopsided game one time.

Although he has spent most of his games at third base, White talks to GV Wire about where he is most comfortable. Last season, White saw a lot of time in the outfield as well.

This is White’s third season in Fresno. In 2016, he made the Opening Day roster for Fresno’s parent club, the Houston Astros. In 85 games, White hit only .217, but slugged eight home runs and earned the AL Player of the Week for the first week of the season.

In this GV Wire interview, White talks about all his Major League firsts and his path from North Carolina to Fresno to the Big Leagues.
