  • Cubs' Trayce Thompson: Looks like primary right fielder

    Thompson will start in right field and bat eighth Wednesday against the Twins.

  • Cubs' Trayce Thompson: Slugs another homer Tuesday

    Thompson went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in a loss to Minnesota on Tuesday.

    After going deep for the first time this season in his last game, Thompson slammed a solo shot in his first at-bat Tuesday. The contest was otherwise a frustrating one for the outfielder -- he struck out three times in his final four at-bats -- but he has at least shown some potential for production with two homers and two stolen bases across only 11 plate appearances on the campaign. Thompson slammed 21 long balls and swiped three bags in 92 games at the Triple-A level prior to being called up last week.

  • Cubs' Trayce Thompson: Hits first 2020 home run

    Thompson went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Brewers.

    Playing in just his fifth game for the Cubs, Thompson launched his first MLB home run since 2018. The 30-year-old outfielder spent 2019 in the minors and then didn't play at all in 2020 with the minor-league schedule canceled. Thompson should serve as depth in Chicago the rest of the way and doesn't have a ton of fantasy appeal unless he starts to see more regular playing time in the season's final weeks.

  • Diamondbacks' Trayce Thompson: Reassigned to alternate camp

  • Diamondbacks' Trayce Thompson: Added to 60-man roster

    Thompson will be a part of the Diamondbacks' 60-man summer camp.

He hasn't played in the majors since 2018, but did post a .882 OPS against left-handed pitching at the Triple-A level last season. Expanded rosters and a universal DH help his case, but there isn't a clear path to extended playing time here.
