Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Trayce Thompson will start for the second straight game Monday versus the Mets.
Thompson started Sunday versus Cubs lefty Drew Smyly and will return to the starting lineup Monday versus Mets southpaw David Peterson. The 32-year-old continues to hit for gargantuan power with four homers and an eye-popping .480 isolated power in just 31 trips to the plate this season but doesn't get much playing time against right-handed starting pitchers.
Trayce Thompson went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run and a walk in a win over the Giants Wendesday.
Thompson made the most of his limited plate appearances Wednesday. The 32-year-old is hitting .316, with four home runs, and 11 RBI in just 19 at-bats this season. The Dodgers are using him off the bench more this season, currently capping his fantasy value to a bench option.
Trayce Thompson went 3-for-4 with a grand slam, a three-run homer and a solo shot in Saturday's 10-1 win over the Diamondbacks.
Thompson made quite the impact in his first start of 2023, totaling eight RBIs and the first three-homer game in baseball this season. The outfielder came into the year likely platooning with David Peralta and/or James Outman depending on the matchup. However, a performance like this has to earn him a few more looks in the starting lineup going forward.
Trayce Thompson went 2-for-3 Monday, singling, homering, scoring one run, and driving in one run in the Dodgers' 2-1 loss to the Rockies.
Thompson has gotten hot at the plate for the Dodgers, posting a 1.148 OPS with five runs scored, two home runs, and three runs batted in over his last seven games. The 31-year-old has played in mostly a reserve role for the Dodgers this season, posting an .868 OPS with 36 runs scored, 13 home runs, and 41 runs batted in through 79 games this season.
Trayce Thompson was scratched from Thursday's lineup due to personal reasons.
Thompson will be away from the team for a day due to personal reasons. Miguel Vargas is starting in left field in Thompson's absence.
