Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 50 | Run: 55 | Arm: 50 | Field: 55 | Overall: 40

Thompson-Williams showed enough glimpses of his athleticism translating into production in two years at Iowa Western Community College and then one season at South Carolina to get taken in the fifth round of the 2016 Draft by the Yankees. Things really didn't start clicking for the outfielder until 2018, when he put in a 20-20 season, mostly in the Florida State League, and earned a bump up to Double-A for the Eastern League playoffs. The Mariners had always liked his tools and acquired him in the package for James Paxton last November.

DTW's power-speed combination has always been intriguing, but it's possible he tried to rely too much on his natural gifts in his first year-plus of pro ball. But he put in the work leading up to the offseason, which led to him producing 22 homers and 20 steals. He has serious raw pop from the left side of the plate, and he can drive the ball to all fields. If he can learn to control the strike zone a bit more consistently, he could make enough contact to have plus game power.

Thompson-Williams has played all three outfield positions and has the skills to play center field on a regular basis. A career as a fourth outfielder might be in the offing, but a repeat of his 20-20 breakout could have evaluators projecting more.
