2016

2015

Thompson is not an elite pitching prospect, but he was one of the most advanced 20-year-old arms in the minors last season, and is a very good bet to make it in a big league rotation. With a big 6-foot-4, 235 pound frame, Thompson can handle a starterís workload and then some. He also features a four-pitch mix highlighted by a low-90s fastball and a slider that works as a true putaway pitch. Thompson put up a 3.14 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP and a 79:25 K:BB ratio in 83 innings at High-A Lakeland and was rewarded with a promotion to Double-A Erie, where he pitched just 11 innings before getting traded him to Texas in July in the Joakim Soria deal. The big righty finished the season strong, striking out 44 with a 3.28 ERA in 35.2 innings at Double-A Frisco. The Rangers have some serious question marks in the back half of the rotation heading into 2015, and Thompson could be ready to contribute this summer.

2014

With Nick Castellanos set to move up to Detroit on a permanent basis, Thompson will make his case to become the Tigersí top overall prospect. The 2012 second-round pick saw his first action above rookie ball last season, going 3-3 with a 3.13 ERA and 91:32 K:BB ratio in 83.1 innings with Low-A West Michigan. The big (6-foot-4, 232-pound) righty features a fastball, slider, changeup, and he has been developing a curveball. His fastball usually sits in the low-90s, but good movement and the possibility of added velocity has the heater graded out as a potential plus-pitch once he reaches the majors. Thompsonís slider is already effective with good break, and it could develop into his best pitch, but his changeup and curveball still need work. The Tigers are currently loaded with starting pitching, which has afforded the team patience with Thompson. The 20-year-old should start progressing his way through the Tigersí system in 2014, but he is not expected to become a legitimate option at the major league level until 2016.
