Trayce Thompson Is Back

Trayce Thompson Is Back

Trayce Thompson is set to make his spring training debut this week after sustaining a season-ending back injury on July 10 of last year. Feeling no effects from the injury, Trayce has some fierce completion for a left field spot. It may be a long shot to get a starting spot, but If he has a good spring he could end up being a backup, coming off of the bench. In his short career, with 358 at bats, Thompson has a .249 batting average but that is with the injury year. At 25, he has a bright future but his spring training will set the tone for his year. Whether he can come back off his back injury and break into the starting lineup or even make the big club is up to him.
