The comparison was made last year as well by both BA and Baseball Intellect. I thought it was a bit of a reach, especially considering his Rookie Ball showing. It would seem to be much more reasonable now given his recent performance and the updated scouting reports.

Talking to scout about #WhiteSox outfielder Trayce Thompson. "Is this for real?" I ask. Scout: "Oh yeah, absolutely. He's tremendous." about 2 hours ago via TweetDeck

Definitely someone to get excited about....hopefully he has a good developmental year and becomes talked about as an elite prospect. The White sox future OF prospects of Thompson, Danks, Mitchell is nice to have at this point.

Trayce has been struggling since his hot debut. Sitting at .232/.292/.463 coming into tonight. He just hit his 5th HR of the year though.

He's been hot and cold this year, but he's still apparently very raw.

Yes indeed. I'm pleased that he is generally making contact and not striking out at an obscene rate and is even walking a little bit. A 19 year old holding his own and tied for the team lead in HR's is something to take note of. Especially when less than a year ago he was struggling against high school pitching. The progress and adjustments he's made are very encouraging, and I expect more to come.

One of my personal faves. I had very high hopes for him this year, and although he hasn't pitched too badly, the demotion plus the non-dominating K rate is not what I had expected.

Trayce Thompson to the DL. Evidently he hurt his hand yesterday.

more wonderful news from the #whitesox minor leagues with trayce thompson going for surgery on his r. thumb and out for a couple months. 1 minute ago via web

______________

Another ****ty break for the dreadful farm system. Just like Mitchell, Trayce has huge upside and plenty of tools and needed the reps to improve. Sucks.
