RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Rich Thompson.

2005

Thompson can steal some bases (41 thefts in 2004), but unless he can start hitting with some semblance of pop, he won't be much more than a depth guy in the organization. His main shot at sticking in the big leagues would be as a defensive replacement/pinch-runner.

2004

Thompson hit .257 with 11 RBI and 22 steals in 35 games for Nashville after being acquired in a July trade from Toronto. Thompson can steal some bases and does a decent job of getting on-base, but unless he can start hitting with some semblance of pop, he won't be much more than a depth guy in the organization. Selected by the Padres in the Rule 5 draft, as one of five Pirates taken in the draft, Thompson has a decent chance of sticking as a backup/defensive replacement/pinch-runner.
