Scouting Report

The top pitcher out of Texas, Thompson is an immensely athletic righthanded pitcher who jumped onto national radars as an underclassman last fall. Thompson’s fastball ranged from 88-93 mph early in the summer before ticking up into the 91-93 mph range as the season progressed. He throws from a high, three-quarter slot with electric arm speed and shows great feel to spin the baseball. Thompson throws a low-80s slider that has hard, late break and two-plane action that routinely draws whiffs and causes batters to expand the zone. He also showed some feel for a solid, 76-79 mph curveball with 11-to-5 break. Thompson is committed to Texas A&M.
