Profile: Whitley is one of the latest projects for the Rays, where they acquire damaged goods and play the long game hoping that the pitcher recovers. It worked with Juan Carlos Oviedo to a degree and did not with Jonny Venters, but Whitley made it back late last season and looked decent in limited work. The Rays are very deep in starting pitching, even with the departure of Drew Smyly, and have several high-upside arms in Durham. The team does lack length in the bullpen, and that is where Whitley may find his niche with the club in 2017. He does not have what it takes to work late innings and is a fringy spot starter, but he could find a nice home in middle relief moving forward. (Jason Collette).

The Quick Opinion: Whitley could compete with Matt Andriese for the fifth spot out of camp, but his likely role is going to be the RDU-TPA shuttle run when the team needs a fresh arm after a taxing game or series.
