2014 White Sox Team Preview: Youth Movement

The White Sox had a dismal season all-around in 2013 to finish last in the AL Central. A series of moves and trades in the offseason made the team much younger, but likely well out of contention.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Thompson may be the best power hitter coming through the White Sox's minor league system. He finished 2012 at Triple-A Charlotte after hitting 22 home runs earlier in the year at High-A Winston-Salem. His long swing continues to result in too many strikeouts (172 in 2012) to predict much contact at the major league level, but the power may be legitimate. He will have a chance to work on those issues over a full season at Charlotte in 2013.

2012

Thompson exploded for 24 home runs and 36 doubles as a 20-year-old at Low-A Kannapolis in 2011. However, he also displayed some streaky tendencies and struck out 172 times in 519 at-bats. Thompson also had vastly greater success against left-handed pitchers (.951 OPS) than righties (.721), which is something he will have to improve upon as he ascends the minor leagues. He comes from an athletic family and possesses a lot of upside, but he is probably a few seasons away from sniffing the major leagues.
