The kid has power, yes, very nice power. He is Adam Dunn with Speed, and not Adam Dunn on the Reds, but the White Sox version.
His career OBP is .080 above his BA. That demonstrates a good eye with contact problems.
He's also been young for his league at every stop.
Adam Dunn with speed? That's so dumb I don't know where to start. Thompson has 4 legit tools.
