The younger brother of Dalton Pompey, Tristan has the offensive tools to have a more meaningful big league career than his sibling. He starred in his final two seasons at Kentucky, batting .350/.458/.548 with 17 homers and 19 steals in 116 games, though some scouts questioned his ability to hit with wood bats as well as his effort. Neither was an issue after the Marlins signed him for $645,000 in the third round last June, as he hit his way to Class A Advanced in his debut.
A switch-hitter, Pompey has shown the ability to do damage from both sides of the plate. His hitting ability stands out a little more than his pop, and he has a quick swing, strong frame and patient approach. Though he has solid-to-plus speed once he gets going, he's not always that quick out of the batter's box and has had just middling success as a basestealer.
Pompey's speed also doesn't play as well as hoped on defense. He played mostly on the corners for the Wildcats because his reads and routes leave a lot to be desired, and profiles best in left field with his fringy arm. Miami deployed him in center field for much of his pro debut and plans on introducing him to first base as well.
