Thompson is a 6-4, 200 pound right-handed hitter and thrower, born March 15, 1991. The White Sox drafted him in the second round in 2009, from high school in Santa Margarita, California. A chiseled athlete, he has excellent raw power and has been a productive source of home runs (he hit 24 last year in Low-A), but his swing is long and he has significant problems with contact.
Thompson is the top prospect. He should fit right in.
