Thompson is currently on his second stint in LA and his making the most of it. The 31-year-old was with the Dodgers back in the 2016 and 2017 seasons, but is definitely standing out a lot more in 2022.

In just this past week alone, Thompson is showing us why he should be a constant fixture in the Dodgers’ lineup. 

In his 48 games in LA, he’s having one of his best seasons as a pro posting .279/.384/.563. 

The Ladera Ranch native has also been a solid defender making web gems in both left field and center field.
