The Astros traded first baseman Tyler White to the Los Angeles Dodgers, who they faced in the 2017 World Series, in return for minor league pitcher Andre Scrubb.
White was drafted in the 33rd round of the MLB Draft in 2016. His best season with the Astros came in 2018, where he finished with 12 home runs and 42 RBIs.
He had three HRs and 21 RBI this season before ultimately being shipped to Los Angeles.
The Astros thanked the "Great White" for his time with the organization with a tribute video on Twitter.
