Thomas, a starter at various positions on the varsity as a sophomore, should demonstrate a developing offensive and defensive game in 2018. Thomas, one of the tallest Indians, has the ability to play in the outfield and infield, and his ability to play multiple positions allows the coaching staff to adapt. Thomas possesses the range to play all outfield positions, and has the quickness and length to play first base as well. Offensively, the Indians desire Thomas to develop additional results from his .250 average with 10 RBI last year, after a season of weight lifting and conditioning. Thomas displays gap power from his left-handed bat, and the coaching staff expects Thomas to become a tough out in the lineup with more focus on his bat path and extension through the ball.
