Just looking at Whitley’s profile tells you he’s from Texas. He stands at a strong, 6-foot-7, 230 pounds, and has the fastball to match. At the Area Code Games, he sat 90-91 while mixing in two hard breaking balls—a curveball at 76-78 and a slider at 82-85. In four innings pitched, he allowed a run on a hit and three walks while striking out seven. While he’s been firmly on the prospect radar this summer, he may have helped himself with his Under Armour outing where he breezed through an inning with two strikeouts while sitting 95-96. His command can waver at times, but he threw strikes in Chicago and gets heavy life on his fastball. He also showed off a cutter at the Under Armour Game, which had late action and sat at 90. Whitley is committed to Florida State.
