This season for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, the Phillies' AAA affiliate, Thompson has posted an 11-5 record with a 2.50 ERA, including an 8-0 record with a 1.21 ERA in his last 11 starts. He's ranked no. 69 (nice) in MLBPipeline.com's prospect rankings. It will be interesting to see how he reacts to playing at the big-league level, and if/how he holds his own. First pitch tonight in San Diego is at 8:40.
