Drafted in the 8th round (237th overall) by the Washington Nationals in 2003 (signed for $80,000)
Thompson wasn't well known entering the 2003 season, but soon had scouts flocking to see his athleticism and 90 mph-plus velocity. Lean, wiry and loose-limbed, Thompson draws comparisons to Oil Can Boyd for his pitching style and appearance. His mechanics and easy, loose arm also are reminiscent of Dewon Brazelton, the third overall pick in the 2001 draft. He's raw on the mound as he drops and drives through his delivery, reaching down and back to hurl his fastball consistently 90-94 mph. Thompson's fastball has plus movement and he maintains his velocity well into games. He also shows a solid feel for his breaking ball. Thompson showcases his changeup only in bullpen sessions. By far the best athlete on his high school team, Thompson played shortstop when he didn't pitch and is a plus runner.
