Thomas is a very athletic, young versatile player. In the infield he moves very well, has a good arm, takes good angles, and can get to everything. He needs to improve his body control and field the ball further in front of his body. On the mound, Thomas is a RHP who hides the ball well, goes after hitters, and uses his legs very well. He can improve by finishing his pitches and keeping his hips closed a little longer. At the plate, Thomas has very good pop, is very balanced, and extends well through contact. He opens his hips and pulls his head a little too early. Thomas is very coachable, and is a very polite player.
