11/8/14:  Whitten is a very projectable, 6-foot-2, 160 pound pitcher with an athletic frame. He throws from a high three-quarters slot with smooth mechanics and easy effort to go with his quick arm. His shoulders are uphill and closed at power position and he strides down the mound on line. Whitten sat 82-84 and touched 85 with his fastball. His four seamer was a bit flat but his two seamer has heavy run on it and he demonstrated really good feel of the pitch. Whitten threw a slider from 71-72 with late break that was very good when down in the zone, but he was a bit erratic with his command at times. He also threw a change-up at 74-75 with good fading action that he kept down in the zone.

8/12/19:Showed an assortment of pitches: two-seam sinker at 86-89 mph, four-seam fastball at 90-92 with some ride, 83-84 change of pace with abrupt fade, 80-81 slider and a 74 mph rolling curveball. The five-pitch mix was affected by his below average command which is likely due to his arm action and the effort in his head dunk delivery. Whitten walked 15 in 16.1 IP this summer. (Seifert)
