Player Outlook
With Sterlin Thompson, it's been all about his hit tool, dating back to high school and college. He hit .332 in college, .296 thus far in the minors and .332 in the Arizona Fall League. Thompson enjoyed the extremely hitter-friendly conditions with High-A Spokane, posting a career-high .520 slugging percentage, but this is still a hit-over-power profile and Thompson is a fringe-average runner, so the bat will have to carry his real-life and fantasy value. He has average raw power and could be a 20-homer hitter with everyday playing time. Thompson played primarily third base at High-A, but he started seeing more time at second base and the corner outfield spots at Double-A and in the AFL. He has a plus arm but lacks the instincts and actions for the hot corner. Given that the Rockies have other long-term challengers at second base (Adael Amador) and in the outfield (Yanquiel Fernandez, Jordan Beck) who project as superior defenders and/or more impactful offensive weapons, Thompson will have a small margin for error at the plate if he is to carve out everyday playing time.

  • Rockies' Sterlin Thompson: Makes Double-A debut

    The Rockies promoted Thompson from High-A Spokane to Double-A Hartford on Tuesday. In his Double-A debut Tuesday, Thompson served as Hartford's designated hitter and went 0-for-4 with a walk and a run scored. One of the top prospects in the Colorado system, the 22-year-old third baseman earned the bump up to Hartford after slashing .323/.399/.520 with seven home runs and 14 stolen bases in 263 plate appearances at Spokane.

  • Rockies' Sterlin Thompson: Back in action for Spokane

    Thompson (undisclosed) returned to action for High-A Spokane on June 2 and has hit .438 with four home runs over an eight-game hit streak. He is still listed as being on the 7-day injured list, but he has played in the last three games for Spokane, so it seems like a possible data error on MiLB.com. This hit streak dates back to before the injury, and Thompson, who transitioned from the outfield to third base this year, has a .438/.489/.763 slash line with five home runs, five steals, an 8.7 percent strikeout rate and a .435 BABIP in 21 games.

  • Rockies' Sterlin Thompson: Hits 7-day IL

    High-A Spokane placed Thompson on the 7-day injured list May 2 with an unspecified injury. Before hitting the shelf with the injury, the 21-year-old Thompson was making a strong early case for a promotion to Double-A Hartford. Over the first month of the minor-league season, Thompson slashed .463/.513/.746 with 12 extra-base hits, five stolen bases and a 7.7 percent strikeout rate over 78 plate appearances. He currently leads all minor-league players in batting average and wRC+ (233).
