A prep righthander with a nasty mid-nineties fastball, Texas prospect Jake Thompson is an imposing mound presence: a 6-4, 240lb 18-year old is a frightening thing for a teenager to face at the plate. Mix in a potentially plus slider and the situation becomes downright unfair. Thompson will work on some secondary pitches in the minors (that ever-elusive change needs a lot of work), but could well become the latest in a long line of Texas pitching finds.
