    Thompson, Cory Mauldin HS (SC) SS

    5'11" 180lbs DOB: 09/23/94 | Scouting video
    Thompson, a legitimate two-way prospect, has presented scouts with a challenge this spring. There is still a split opinion about what position he will play as a professional. On the mound, Thompson throws in the low-90s with a good curveball and changeup. But at 5-foot-11, 180 pounds, Thompson is undersized for a right-hander. Thompson is an excellent athlete, which helps him on the mound and as a shortstop. Thompson has good hands at shortstop and a good arm. Offensively, he makes consistent contact and has good speed. Thompson is committed to South Carolina, where he would continue as a two-way player.

    Article on Thompson
    http://www.thestate.com/2013/06/05/2...ould-hear.html

    Thompson has been a dominant starting pitcher for Mauldin. Featuring a fastball that consistently clocks 89-92 mph, he had a 1.70 ERA this season. He struck out 67 batters in 53 innings.

    But Thompson is also a standout hitter who led off and played shortstop. He hit .416 with 42 runs, six home runs and 23 RBIs. He stole 16 bases in 17 attempts and struck out six times.

    While pro scouts have been split on the position Thompson would play, he believes whatever team drafts him will allow him to hit first.

    “Some scouts say if hitting doesn’t work out, I could switch back to pitching, but I couldn’t switch back to hitting after not hitting for a few years,” Thompson said.


    Thompson, who has committed to South Carolina, said he will sit down with his family after the draft and determine if he will sign with a pro team or head to Columbia. He said the decision will be based primarily on how highly he’s drafted.

    “Whatever path he chooses, I’m confident Cory will succeed,” said Mauldin coach Jim Maciejewski, who added that Thompson’s even-keeled personality helped him perform well under the watchful eye of scouts all season.

    Scouts didn’t stop watching after the school year. After taking his final exam May 24, Thompson and his father, Fred, traveled to Phoenix last week for a pre-draft workout with the Arizona Diamondbacks. From there, it was on to Chicago for a workout with the White Sox on Sunday.

    “It was nice going to Chicago. I was born there and haven’t been back in 13 years,” said Thompson, who also worked out for the Cardinals (in Florida), Nationals, Padres, Dodgers, Red Sox (in Atlanta) and Reds (in Charlotte) this year.
