PG Grade: 8.5
Jared Thompson is a 2017 LHP/1B with a 6-4 200 lb. frame from Vinton, IA who attends Vinton-Shellsburg HS. Nice pitcher's build, tall with slopping shoulders and lots of room to get stronger. Two-piece delivery with a pause at the top, extended high 3/4's arm slot creates good angle to the plate, arm works well coming through. Mid-80's fastball, topped out at 86 mph early, mostly straight, tends to miss down in the zone to the glove side consistently, will need to make delivery adjustments to locate his fastball better. Did not observe a curveball. Threw some upper 70's pitches that were either 2-seam fastballs or very firm change ups. Young southpaw with the body and arm strength to keep improving, has gained 6-8 mph in the last year.
