Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 60 Upright balanced stance with a mild load and leg kick, incorporates lower half well; Has good bat to barrel skills, shows an advanced approach at the plate, will attack in hitter's counts, recognizes spin and does not often expand the zone.
Power 45 Strong and compact frame and above average bat speed generate sneaky pop; makes loud contact to all fields, mostly line drives; Not going to be a slugger but power will play fringe average at maturity.
Baserunning/Speed 60 Plus runner with a quick start up; 3.97 clock on a dig to first; not a huge threat to steal bases but is aggressive and smart on the base paths.
Glove 60 Has the tools and instincts to be a plus defender in center field; speed and athleticism give plus range, gets good jumps.
Arm 45 Accurate, but lacks arm strength, not a ton of carry on throws; will be stretched to handle center.

Speed and defense give a major league floor for Thomas. A projected plus hit tool and his ability to stick in center field give a profile of a future everyday outfielder.
