Trayce Thompson is an interesting athlete. Given the success that his brother is having in the NBA and his bloodlines, it’s no surprise that he has tools in spades, and probably also no surprise that he has some rough edges.
Hoping that he gets the K rate under control because he could be fun to watch.
His low FIP and very high BABIP suggest that he may have had a lot of bad luck. He also walks very few hitters. I see his ceiling being a solid number 3 starter. He could be this year’s Jose Quintana if another injury or trade opens the door for him.
i feel like that’s the kinda comparison that gives comparisons a bad name amongst some of the so-called “experts”…im not criticizing you in any way, and actually agree with you pretty much 100%, but i also feel that you could make that comparison with about 30-40% of minor leaguers…athletic, fast, high-ceiling, toolsy OF who strike out way too much, and frustrate the heck out of fans. sorry that was just a rant about player comparisons.
