An American Association All-Star as a reliever in 2017, Thompson moves into the Birds' rotation for the 2018 season. Thompson had a 3.66 ERA in 41 relief appearances last season for the Birds, his second year with the team. A Colorado Rockies draft pick in the 31st round of the 2014 MLB draft, Thompson spent 2 years in Colorado's farm system. Canaries manager Mike Meyer said Thompson's high ground ball rate will be effective in the Birdcage as he moves into the rotation.
