The Philadelphia Phillies are calling up 22-year old righty starting pitcher Jake Thompson to make his Major League debut against the San Diego Padres tomorrow night. Thompson came into this season as the Phillies’ #3 prospect according to Baseball America. He was part of the return the Phillies got last July in the deal that send Cole Hamels to the Rangers. Thompson pitched in 21 games (all starts) in AAA-ball for the Phillies this year and he was 11-5 with a 2.50 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP. He gave up 105 hits and 37 walks while whiffing 87 batters in his 129 2/3 innings in AAA-ball this year. Thompson has now pitched in 94 games (92 starts) in his first five years in the minors and he is 36-22 with a 3.06 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP. The Phillies are hoping that Thompson will give them a building block for their starting rotation moving forward.
