01/15/2021 - 2021 Baseball Factory Pre-Season All-America Tournament (FL) Thomas is a (2023) R/R MIF who can pick it. Defensively, he has quick/active prep and is aggressive to come and get the GB. He takes good angles working smoothly right to left. Hands are soft as he funnels to a quick/clean transfer. Footwork around the 2B bag is quick in turning the DP. Offensively, this righty shows a crouched setup with rhythm to load. Loose hands whip the barrel to and through the zone as he connects and hits line-drives back up the middle of the field. He is quick out of the box and down the 1B line - putting pressure on the defense. Bethel also showed his versatility with the ability to get on the mound and compete. FB ranges 71-74 mph working it to both sides of the zone. CB has 10/4 shape while CH has some good arm-side run. Thomas (2023 grad) has a solid skill-set and will only continue improve.
