2023 Player Outlook
Thompson isn't guaranteed a starting job by any means, but he's in the discussion. He had 18 stolen bases a year ago in just 181 plate appearances. A 30.9% strikeout rate holds him back but his speed is a tremendous asset. Thompson beat out several ground balls a year ago. Of his 39 singles, 18 came off a bunt or infield hit to lead to a .440 wOBA on ground balls. But the lack of power certainly makes him more of a candidate in categories leagues if you're looking to stash someone who can maybe steal 20-25 bases if the playing time is there.
