Baseball America checks in on Cody Thomas
Raw tools galore for the ex-quarterback, Baseball America gives an update on his progress:
Cody Thomas, cf, Dodgers. The former Sooners backup quarterback has shown the rawness you’d expect from a player who skipped playing baseball in 2015 to focus on football, but he’s also shown athleticism and power. Thomas blasted his 15th homer—second in the Pioneer League to Ronnie Gideon—and had three hits in Ogden’s 12-10 win over Grand Junction (Rockies). Thomas has holes in his swing—he has struck out 83 times in 220 plate appearances—but the raw power and athleticism make him a player to dream on.
And this inside the park home run by Dansby Swanson as Shelby Miller was getting shelled once again can’t be sitting well with Diamondback fans.
