RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Thompson had the look of a difference-maker as an early-season pickup after he compiled a .270/.352/.603 line (.955 OPS) with six homers over 21 games in May, but a back injury suffered near the end of the month lingered through the second half and cut his season short as he did not appear in a game after July 10. Thompson was nearly split neutral in 2016, which bodes well for his chances of carving out a larger role this time around. In addition to the back injury, his rising strikeout rate as the season progressed is a cause for concern, as his hit tool has typically graded out as his worst offering, even though he offers a combination of power and speed necessary to be a valuable fantasy contributor, and the defensive prowess required to maintain a regular role even when he's battling through a slump at the plate. Barring a major change to the depth chart, Thompson will begin the season competing for playing time in the Dodgers' outfield.

2016

When the White Sox recalled Thompson from Triple-A Charlotte, he had a reputation as a glove-first, athletic outfielder who could spell Avisail Garcia in right. So of course he posted an OPS near .900 through his first 40 MLB games and played Garcia into a platoon. Perhaps his emergence should not be too big of a surprise, as he flashed big power in the lower minors before succumbing to the strikeout bug at Double-A in 2013. He got his strikeout rate below 20 percent in 2015, and good things happened. He may not be able to sustain a high average, but his athleticism, power, and defense should make him a valuable fantasy contributor in time. Unfortunately, his path to 2016 playing time now has several roadblocks with the move to Los Angeles as part of a three-team trade in the offseason.

2015

Thompson has become buried in the White Sox's organizational ranks behind newer prospects, but he remains an interesting minor league hitter. That is to say, he will remain interesting if he can ratchet down the strikeouts. He posted a .182 ISO and went 20-for-25 on the basepaths at Double-A Birmingham, but also struck out 151 times in 595 plate appearances. Thompson draws good reports for his defense and baserunning ability, so he could report to Triple-A Charlotte at some point in 2015, even if his batting average never rises.

2014

Thompson's raw power propelled him through the White Sox's organization through his first three years of professional ball, but he hit a wall in 2013 at Double-A Birmingham despite repeating the level. His power/speed combination would be intriguing if he could ever correct his strikeout problem, and he has the potential to hit Chicago in the next season or two, but expect him to spend much of 2014 at Birmingham again, unless the White Sox decide he is ready for Triple-A competition.

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.
