With the 2022 regular season over, it is that time where we go back and take a look at the players who appeared for the Texas Rangers this past season.
Today, we look at outfielder Bubba Thompson.
Its been a nice couple of years for Bubba Thompson. His stock had plummeted when an awful 2019 season, when he put up a 573 OPS in 57 games in high-A, was followed by the lost 2020 season. For a toolsy, raw guy who needed reps, a lost season of development is a particular setback.
Entering the 2021 season, despite being a first round draft pick in 2017, Thompson had just 161 pro games under his belt — 182 if you counted his AFL stint in 2019.
