12/27/2012 - Pirate City Christmas Camp and Tournament Cole continues to show solid abilities as a 2-way player. As a SS, he shows active footwork and athletic movements. He moves well laterally to balls in the hole and throws with plus arm strength. On the mound, FB shows slight arm-side run and slight action. He attacks the zone and throws strikes with all of his pitches. He works in-line and lands square to the plate. Offensively, Thomas improved his power grade by using more of his lower 1/2 to help drive the ball. He shows good balance and hits line-drives.
