Thomas showed hitting improvements during his last workout with The Factory. At 1B, Thomas has active feet, he moves well around the ball, and he fields in a square position. He keeps the ball in front, gains ground, and throws with a short arm action to his target. Behind the plate, Thomas sits in low and athletically, he has soft hands, and sticks the ball well. He gains ground toward his target and delivers with a short arm to 2nd base. Offensively, Thomas' power spiked to 45. He has an athletic set-up, good balance, and he flashes some bat speed. He swings in good rhythm, has pop in his bat, and hits hard to the pull side.

Thomas is a strong, hard-working 2021 prospect behind the plate. He takes violent cuts at the dish, looking to do damage and making hard contact with every swing. He shows good rhythm in the box with a stacked load and on time stride. His lower half is strong to generate fast bat speed and he makes hard contact to all fields, crushing balls up in the zone. Behind the plate, he shows efficient footwork to slide and block balls to center. He works around the ball to receive and shows a clean exchange to throw on a line to second. Squaring up his body will allow him to deaden more dirt balls and keep them close. Thomas is a prospect we look forward to following.
