Phillies' Jake Thompson: Seven scoreless innings Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Thompson tossed seven scoreless innings for Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday. He allowed three hits while striking out five and walking one.

Thompson pitched the same night as Jeremy Hellickson, who is likely to be traded this month. That indicates Thompson will be brought up to the majors in the coming weeks. He is on a roll, having given up just four earned runs over his last eight starts. Overall, he is 8-5 with a 2.42 ERA and a 77:32 K:BB ratio in 111.2 innings for Lehigh Valley.

Phillies' Jake Thompson: Mechanical change leads to improved performance
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Thompson credits his recent success to a mechanical adjustment that he made with Triple-A Lehigh Valley pitching coach David Lundquist, Paul Schwedelson of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Thompson's upper body and lower body weren't aligning in his delivery which caused his secondary pitches to be less sharp. Since making the mechanical adjustment, Thompson has a 0.73 ERA over his last seven starts and has gone at least six innings in each of those appearances. He has also increased his ground ball rate from 29.2 percent in the first two months of the year to 36 percent over the last five weeks. He is likely next in line for an opportunity in the Phillies' rotation. That opportunity could come this month if Jeremy Hellickson is traded before the deadline.

Phillies' Jake Thompson: Allows one run over eight innings Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson allowed one run on five hits over eight innings Thursday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley. He struck out four and walked two.

Thompson seems to have found his groove of late. He has allowed just one run over his last three starts with a 12:5 K:BB in 21 innings. Thompson is likely next in line for an opportunity with the Phillies when a spot in their rotation opens up. He does not have big-time upside, but should be a solid mid-rotation starter in time if he continues to develop.

Phillies' Jake Thompson: Solid outing Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Thompson allowed one run on two hits over seven innings Tuesday for Triple-A Lehigh Valley. He struck out four and walked two.

This was probably Thompson's best outing of the season thus far. He got 10 of his outs on ground balls. He is now 1-3 with a 4.85 ERA and a 22:10 K:BB in 26 innings. Thompson will likely be in consideration for a promotion to the majors the next time the Phillies need a starter.

Phillies' Jake Thompson: Mixed results in first two starts of season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Thompson, 22, has a 6.75 ERA and 10:5 K:BB through eight innings for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Thompson essentially had one good start and one bad start. He allowed just one earned run in his season debut, then was smoked for five runs on six hits in his most recent outing. While his strikeout rate dipped a little last season, Thompson still had a 1.80 ERA in seven starts at Double-A after being traded as part of the Cole Hamels deal.
