Is Trayce Thompson the Next Mike Stanton?

Is Trayce Thompson — the 3rd pick by the Chicago White Sox this year — the next Mike Stanton? Probably not. But I admit Mike Stanton was the first player to cross my mind when I watched Thompson. I mean, you can see enormous power potential from Thompson with each swing. He has an ideal frame with room to add more weight and muscle mass without losing much of his present speed. His bat speed is tremendous. The swing itself looks similar to Stanton’s, particularly how the back leg rotates forward. And when Thompson gets a hold of one, the ball goes a long, long way.
