Thomas is a 2B prospect who showcased his skills at the All-Region Tournament. In the field, Thomas shows efficient footwork and takes good angles to the ball. He fields in a square position and has a clean exchange. He gains ground well on his throws, keeping them consistent to his target. Presenting his glove to the ball sooner can help Thomas field ground balls more efficiently. At the plate, this RHH sets up in an open stance and gets back into his load well. He leads with his lower half and produces consistent contact to his pull side. Thomas can produce more pop off the barrel by taking a more level swing path. With four more years to develop, Thomas has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
