12/27/2015 - Under Armour Baseball Factory Recruiting Classic Thomas is a 2019 2B that showed a hard-working, coachable approach at the Recruiting Classic. Defensively, Shea showed good body control and soft hands that were presented with good timing in the center of his body. The arm stroke fits his position and Thomas will benefit from developing a more consistent pre-pitch routine and also from working on a slightly more aggressive and attacking mentality in the field. At the plate, Shea shows a soft and square stride with good separation of the hands and should be mindful to avoid wrapping the bat behind him and loading a bit earlier to develop more fluidity. The swing path is level as the eyes track the ball well into the hitting zone and there is balance throughout the stroke and finish. With years ahead to develop physically through an aggressive strength and conditioning program, Thomas's hard-working approach will reap dividends down the road.
