NPI

Thompson is a lean 5-foot-11 154 pounds, boasting a wiry frame he should be able to add length and weight in the coming years. The 2024 prospect works quickly on the mound with an up-tempo windup and possesses a long arm that generates a lot of lay back before release. He lands balanced and strong, maximizing his extension fairly consistently. He touched 80 mph multiple times with the fastball that had arm side fade with a sweeping slurvish breaking ball that came across the plate generating his fair share of swings and misses.

Underclass Games

5-foot-11, 145-pound left-handed two-way prospect, athletically built, lean muscle, plenty of room and time for further physical development, ran a 7.39 laser-timed 60. On the mound, arm plays with some length on the back-side, continuous movement, accelerates quickly to a ¾ slot. Tall and fall delivery, works across the mound, lands square, finishes square to home. Fastball sat 75-76, touched 77, feel for. Offensively, open setup, high hands drop and lad back, toe-tap stride, balanced finish. Aggressive pull-side swing, really lets the hands go, quick actions, barrel works uphill through the zone, looks to elevate and drive, with added strength to his frame will have power to the pull-side and ability to drive the ball back up the middle, 77 exit velocity off a tee, 84.67 peak exit velocity during BP via TrackMan. Defensively, long, loose arm action to a ¾ slot, above average arm strength for his age, 81 mph. At-times plays through the ball, fields out front, approaches with short, quick steps, clean on transfers, moves well tracking the ball.
